Next weekend, Roxie will be hosting the 2019 Junior Eurovision Contest in Gliwice, Poland alongside Ida Nowakowska and Aleksander Sikora. Ahead of this, the former The Voice Kids winner has released a new single, titled “MVP”, the name is very appropriate considering the year she has had.
Since winning Junior Eurovision 2018, Roksana Węgiel has had a very busy year! The young star released her debut album earlier this year, followed by a new single a few weeks ago. Despite only being 14(!!!) years old, she now has another big trophy for her [parents’] mantelpiece. She recently won Best Polish Act at the MTV European Music Awards!
Roxie the MVP
Roksana Węgiel, now performing has Roxie, released the single and video just yesterday. In just over 24 hours, the video already has over 300,000 views. The song was written and composed by Steve Manovski, TS Graye, Jenson Vaughan, Sarah Raba.
It is likely that the song will be performed at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 next weekend in Gliwice-Silesia, Poland. Alongside her performances, Roxie will be hosting the 2019 Junior Eurovision Contest in Gliwice, Poland alongside Ida Nowakowska and Aleksander Sikora.
Poland in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest
Poland made their debut in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest when the contest began in 2003, in Copenhagen, Denmark. After winning the Polish national final for the contest Katarzyna Żurawik represented the nation with the song, “Coś mnie nosi”. Unfortunately, they finished last with just three points. In 2004, Poland came out with exactly the same result, finishing in the last place slot with again, three points.
After two years of poor results and despite TVP signing a 3-year contract with the EBU, Poland decided to withdraw from the contest in 2005. The country did not return to compete again until 2016, despite rumours in 2008 that the broadcaster was considering making a return.
On their return in 2016, Poland sent Olivia Wieczorek with the song “Nie zapomnij”, which finished in 11th place with 60 points. Last year, Rossana Węgiel became the winner of the sixteenth Junior Eurovision Song Contest with “Anyone I Want To Be”. A strong public vote landed her with 215 points to France’s 203 points.
