Back in March Polish pop star Margaret found herself at the centre of one of the biggest Eurovision dramas of the year. Despite being the red-hot favourite to win both Krajowe Eliminacje 2016, Poland’s national selection, and Eurovision 2016, the blonde bombshell lost out at home to underdog Michal Szpak.
Since then we’ve heard a lot of rumours about her comeback in the near future and we were PRAYING for it to happen. Sadly the dream ends today, folks. Margaret has just ripped out our hearts, put them in a blender, and poured the result on our Eurofan altar.
In an interview with SPECTRUMM magazine, Margaret did not mince her words when distancing herself from a potential Eurovision participation. She said:
For now, I’m done, I think. That was a lot of pressure and it was a big lesson for me. I don’t feel that music and artists should be ranked in any way. It’s not like in sport. Someone will get to the end faster, or jump higher. You can’t compare music. You just like it or not.
At least she said “for now” and “I think” — suggesting that there is small glimmer of hope in the future.
Nevertheless, Margaret still has us excited. The Polish pop princess keeps slaying internationally, as we saw just a few days ago at Sweden’s Sommarkrysset. In her interview with SPECTRUMM she also mentioned that she is working on some new material and that she hopes to release several new albums. Nothing can cool her down!
WHAT’S THE FUSS?
Margaret — one of Poland’s hottest pop commodities — rose to fame prior to entering the Eurovision bubble. Her first single “Thank You Very Much” became a huge hit in 2013, and has clocked nearly nine million views since then. Its popularity was driven by the infectious sound (and just maybe the blurred nudity).
In 2014 she released her debut studio album “Add the Blonde” and it went platinum in Poland. With her most recent single “Cool Me Down” going viral around the world, surely more success will follow.
