After their Junior Eurovision success for the past two years, it seems that Poland is determined to replicate their recent success in the adult version of the contest.
TVP confirmed that Szansa na Sukces will be used to select their Eurovision entry for Rotterdam. The program was used to select their Junior Eurovision 2019 entry in which Viki Gabor won in Glwice-Silesia a few months ago.
How ‘Szansa na Sukces’ will work?
The selection will run as usual. There will be three semi-finals which will see six to seven participants sing a cover song from the catalogue of the special guest the show has that week.
A three person jury would then whittle the six to seven acts to select a winner that will go through to the Grand Final. During the semi-finals, there will be no televote and the acts are solely decided by the three-person jury.
In the Grand Final, the three acts will perform a cover, and an original song, which they would then go on to participate at the Eurovision Song Contest.
Applications are now open for the contest and will close on January 13. The first semifinal would then begin on February 2, and will conclude on February 23.
Poland at the Eurovision Song Contest
Poland debuted in Eurovision Song Contest in 1994. In their debut, they managed to finish 2nd, which to date is the country’s highest place in the contest.
In 2019, Poland was represented Tulia with the song “Fire of Love” (Pali się). Tulia finished 11th in the Semi-Final with 120 points, missing a spot for the Grand Final by just 2 points.
