The live on-tape performance of the Polish entry for Eurovision 2022 has been released !
During the Jaka To Melodia? last week, the live on-tape performance of Krystian Ochman’s “River” was shown. This appearance was essentially a backup and would be presented if Ochman or the Polish delegation did not manage to attend Eurovision in Turin.
This appearance was recorded at TVP Studios in Warsaw
Ochman finished in 12th place for Poland in the Eurovision grand final with the song “River”. This is the best result for Poland in the competition since 2016 when Michał Szpak finished 8th in Stockholm.

What exactly is live on tape video?
According to what was announced, all participating broadcasters were asked to record a live performance of their participation. This recording will be delivered before the competition and will take place in a studio. The recording will take place in real time (as it would be in the Competition) without making any changes to the vocals or any part of the performance itself after the recording. There will be freedom for the delegations to present their entries as they see fit, but instructions will have been given to ensure the fairness and integrity of the competition. There will be no audience and the recording should be unique and not published before the event in May. Delegations are allowed to use similar technical capabilities and dimensions that would be available on stage in Turin, but they are also free to choose a more limited production facility. Video recordings must not contain augmented or virtual reality, overlays, confetti, drone shots, water, color use or green screen. It is the second year that live on tape videos are required from all participants. This video will be used instead of a live performance on the stage in Turin, in case that a delegation cannot travel in May or a member of the delegation falls ill with coronavirus and the first rehearsal has not taken place.
