Poland at 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, Roksana 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.
In 2019, Viki Gabor won the contest with the song “Superhero”. She scored a total of 278 points, 51 points ahead of second place Kazakhstan. Poland received over 550,000 votes in the online vote, over 200,000 votes ahead of Spain.
