EurovisionStockholm 2016

Poland announce their acts – and some you might already know!

This evening, TVP announced the names of the artists and songs that will compete in their national selection show on 5th March.
The acts and songs were chosen by an expert panel of music professionals. The shortlisted nine are:

  • Natalia Szroeder – Lustra
  • Edyta Górniak – Grateful
  • Taraka – In the Rain
  • Aleksandra Gintrowska – Missing
  • Michał Szpak – Color of Your Life
  • Margaret – Cool Me Down
  • Kaisia Moś – Addiction
  • Dorota Osińka – Universal
  • Napoli – My Universe

From the list, there are a few names that you may find somewhat familiar. Let’s start with Edyta Górniak who is one of Poland’s most popular female artists – she represented the country at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest with the song “To nie ja” (“That’s Not Me”).
The second name you may have come across is Napoli. Although yet to reach the Eurovision stage, Napoli participated in this year’s Belarusian national final where she finished runner up with “My Universe” (yes the very same song!)
Watch her perform the song in the Belarusian final below:

It is yet unclear whether the winner will be chosen purely via televoting or with the inclusion of a jury. Poland will compete in the first half of the second semi final on 12th May.
