Earlier this week Polish Eurovision star Michal Szpak debuted his new single “Don’t Poison Your Heart”. Last night he gave the first live performance, in the grand final of The Voice of Poland.
But Szpak was not alone on stage. As a coach on The Voice, he was joined by his act, Marta Galuszewska. The pair’s performance was one of Marta’s four performances in the grand final.
The pink-haired singer brought her own touch to the song and made the brand new single sound like a rock classic.
Polish fans were quick to pick up on the performance. On YouTube, the duo’s voices have been praised, as has their chemistry. Viewer “MafoX” wrote, “The two of them did something amazing on this stage.”
And of course, it wasn’t long before fans suggested that Marta and Michal should team up for Eurovision. Another viewer reckoned, “Seriously they should be in a duet at Eurovision with this song. Much better than a duet. Beautifully synchronized their voices. This is how two talents meet.”
The power duet worked well for Marta, who went on to win The Voice of Poland. Could her winner’s luck extend to Eurovision?
The song — which is exactly three minutes long — already has fans excited over its potential as Poland’s entry for Eurovision 2018. But could we now see Szpak and Galuszewska bringing their rock duet power to the Lisbon stage?
“Don’t Poison Your Heart” – music video
On Thursday, Szpak released the music video for “Don’t Poison Your Heart”.
Showing off his newly straightened hair, he wanders around an old house and delivers his best blue steel looks to the camera.
A number of hooded figures can be seen moving around in a sinister fashion. Is this some sort of Illuminati plot? No, it’s just Szpak’s backing band, wearing black hoodies.
The video also features a man and women who sit in front of laptops that are ablaze. Is this a reminder not to get involved with internet flame wars?
It remains to be seen what Szpak’s ultimate plan for “Don’t Poison Your Heart” is. But it should be noted that he’s a fan of getting things started early. Szpak first expressed interest in Eurovision 2016 way back in June 2015. In December 2015, he released two potential Eurovision songs — one of which was his eventual Stockholm entry “Color of Your Life”. Could he also be getting an early start on his Eurovision 2018 campaign?
What do you think? Should Michal perform “Don’t Poison Your Heart” as a duet with Marta? Should TVP internally select him? Share your thoughts below!
