So, I’m in Jamaica at the moment and I can confirm that the solar eclipse this far south was a whole lot less impressive than the solar eclipse website I consulted suggested it was going to be.

I mean, it was never going to be a total eclipse down here, but I was hoping for a bit more than just having to trust the locals that the sun wasn’t quite as bright as you’d normally expect for 2pm in the afternoon.

But, further north – across parts of the USA and its coastline – the sun was indeed totally eclipsed. Want to see Bonnie Tyler sing ‘Total Eclipse Of The Heart’ during the moment of daytime darkness with Joe Jonas’s band DNCE? Of course you do. Here it is…

As previously reported, Tyler was booked to perform her pop rock classic during the eclipse by a cruise company, which was parking its ship in the path of totality. Said cruise company has now posted some clips of that performance online.

True, it does kinda look like Tyler is just singing her hit on a cloudy day, but you do get to see some people wearing silly glasses staring into the sky, so swings and roundabouts I guess.
