Back in 2010, Poland’s Marcin Mrozinski appeared on stage in Oslo with a bunch of Polish women holding apples. He finished 13th out of 17 countries. Looking back he isn’t surprised.

“It was absolutely horrible on stage,” he told me at the London Eurovision Party. “I still can’t watch the videos… I’m like, ‘Oh my god.’ I hate it.”

But at the time Marcin was too busy managing his Eurovision journey to recognize the mistakes that were unfolding: “I didn’t have any support from our national broadcaster, so I had to think of everything myself.”

Marcin advises this year’s Eurovision contestants to make the most of their time. That means spending time with your fellow contestants and all the people who will gather in Copenhagen. “It’s just two weeks but in these two weeks they can make so many friendships…and meet so many great people…..It’s better going to party and enjoy this atmosphere than sitting in the hotel and eating peanuts from the fridge of the hotel and checking the rank on the Internet.”

lets face it. the song was bad. and it did not qualify for the final because it was bad..not because of the stage performance. even if that was indeed ridiculous

Maybe the staging wasn’t that great, but I loved Legenda! Marcin is another former contestant I would love to see back at ESC and hopefully do a lot better than the first time (: Now that Poland is back that may be possible!

It is so sad when artists get no support from their local televisions. Hopefully this year things will be different; plus they will need everyone’s support so that their song is not underrated. A great staging will do it a lot of good 😉

It was absolutely horrible, the attitude of TVP till 2011. Luckily it seems many things has changed this year.
