Poland: Krystian Ochman seems to be the chosen one!

Despite the rumors that existed all the previous time and wanted Daria with Paranoia to be the one who will represent Poland in Eurovision 2022, a safe information we have received, states that in the end Krystian Ochman is the one who will go to Turin.

Many fans in Poland wanted Krystian Ochman to represent the country in the contest, especially after his victory in The Voice of Poland, which by the way is broadcast on public television. A few days earlier, he confirmed the rumors, saying that he has submitted a song, in the internal selection made by TVP this year.

Recently, I did something with ATUT and BLACK HI-FI, maybe for Eurovision. […] Olek Kowalski, a great producer, and also in favor of making modern songs, with a beat, singing at a faster pace with a nice melody. We worked together in the studio to have a song suited for Eurovision, but one that I can carry on my own.

The information that told us that he is the one who has been selected for the Eurovision Song Contest, also speaks of a dynamic ballad, which highlights the range of his voice.

Although the above is information that we can not yet cross-check and fully confirm, we decided to transfer all of the above with reservation.

TVP announces the artist who will represent Poland at Eurovision 2022 is expected on January 15.

Some of the most serious candidates are: DariaKuba Szmajkowski and Krystian Ochman.

TVP works on project “Eurovision 2022” for many months now. In mid-September, the public broadcaster published the rules of the internal selection and received several dozens of applications. Anyone interested had until November 2021 to submit their proposal. After this deadline, the competition committee decided upon the Polish representative for Turin. At first, TVP was going to publish the results in January 2, however the announcement got postponed until January 15.

Will Daria represent Poland in Eurovision 2022?

This information was publicly known from November through social media. Since then, Daria and her proposal Paranoia are, according to fans, the most likely to represent Poland. Daria herself keeps distance from speculations and admits in interviews that she is not sure about submitting to internal selections. However, from time to time Daria stokes rumors by publishing reports in her social media that may indicate that she is involved with the selection process for 2022

For now, it seems to me that I am the only one in the minds of Poles. It seems that I am the only one whose profile is appropriate to everyone and also because I have worked abroad as well as singing in English and having my songs on the radio. […] A lot of people think so but I have no idea yet. Of course I would be delighted to represent my country in Eurovision. I would give it my best.

Will Kuba Szmajkowski represent Poland in Eurovision 2022?

Another artist interested in representing Poland at Eurovision 2022 is Kuba Szmajkowski . A former member of the 4Dreamers team in 2021, he focused on the development of his solo career. Kuba himself has confirmed that his proposal for Turin is his club hit single Lovesick. It is no secret that he loves Eurovision and some of his favorite contestants are Helena Paparizou and Eleni Foureira.

I am a big fan of Eurovision since 2015. My dream is to perform at the world’s biggest events. Every year I follow the contest and I support our representatives. I think my song is a very good choice and it will work really well in the contest, so I submitted for the Polish selection. The song talks about a difficult relationship that we are addicted to, but on the same time it hurts. The song was created in cooperation with well-known producers and my Swedish-Polish team

Will Krystian Ochman represent Poland in Eurovision 2022?

After several weeks of speculation and fan expectations, Krystian Ochman confirmed that he was not only interested in Eurovision 2022, but also that he submitted a song to TVP. One of his advantages is the experience that Krystian Ochman gained by winning The Voice of Poland. A lot of fans believe that thanks to his win he could be successful in the music industry and achieve a good result in Turin.

Recently, I did something with ATUT and BLACK HI-FI, maybe for Eurovision. […] Olek Kowalski, a great producer, and also in favor of making modern songs, with a beat, singing at a faster pace with a nice melody. We worked together in the studio to have a song suited for Eurovision, but one that I can carry on my own.

Poland: TVP opens submissions for internal selection!

Poland starts the process of selecting the artist who will represent her at Eurovision 2022 and wants to put an end to the negative streak of three non-qualifications in the last three contests and return to the final for the first time since 2017, and Kasia Moś.

Polish broadcaster, TVP, will follow the same recipe for a second consecutive year and third in the last four years. As it happened last year, so this year, the singer who will compete in the 66th Eurovision will emerge through internal selection.

Both the song and the artist will be selected by internal selection, with TVP executives aiming to a return in the Grand Final and positive results. Let’s not forget that the state of Eastern Europe has only three placements in the Top 10 in 24 entries.

In today’s announcement, TVP called on all interested parties to submit their proposals for the representation of Poland next May in Italy. Those interested have a deadline of two months until 22:00 on the night of November 20 to send an email to and submit their proposal.

The artist who will represent Poland at Eurovision 2022 will be announced on January 2, as typically mentioned in the regulations published by TVP.

Poland was represented in Rotterdam by Rafal, with the song The Ride, but failed to qualify for the final. His choice was a bit of a last minute, as Polish public television had taken over the organization of Junior Eurovision 2020 and had turned all its attention there.

Let’s see if the fact that for 2022 the search for their participation in the competition will start early, will bring a better result.

Poland: Watch the official video clip of “Empires”

Through the “Szansa na Sukces” show, Poland has chosen its representative for Rotterdam. The winner of the competition was Alicja Szemplińska, who will represent Poland at Eurovision 2020 with “Empires”.

She later released the studio version of the song as she performed it for the first time on the day of the national final.

Not long ago, through the official YouTube channel of the contest, a video clip of the entry was released, which you can watch below:

Poland: Positive to host Junior Eurovision 2020 again if it wins

The general manager of Polish Public Television, TVP, has revealed that he is also positive about organizing Junior Eurovision next year, as long as the forecasts are verified and won in a few days in Glivice.

The Eurovision Children’s Contest will be held on November 24 in Gliwice, Poland. 19 countries will claim the victory, with the hosting country to be considered as the favorite by many.

Viki Gabor‘s “Superhero” has surpassed more than 2 million views in less than a month,  enjoying herself a lot of popularity in her own country, a very important element of online voting, as in  Junior Eurovision we can also vote in favour of our  own country.

Since 2017, EBU has changed the way the hosting country of Junior Eurovision is being selected and has removed the winner’s right to have the first say on hosting or not the competition, as it was until then. A system of nominations was introduced, through which the EBU chose the nomination it seemed most appropriate. That’s how Minsk was chosen in 2018 and Glivice this year. By the way, this year’s hosting country also happened to be the winner of the previous contest.

So it remains to be seen if EBU will give the next event in Poland, if “Superhero” wins Junior Eurovision 2019 in a few days.
