What is Szansa Na Sukces
“Szansa Na Sukces” was used as the selection format for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The winner was Viki Gabor who sang the song “Superhero”. She went on to win the contest in Glewice on home turf, the first instance of a home win in JESC and the first time a home nation won any Eurovision event since Ireland won in 1994.
