After making their return in 2014, it looks like TVP have said “I Don’t Wanna Leave” to Eurovision and have put forward their plans to take part in Vienna!
It’s great news from the broadcaster, who have often cited financial issues as reasons for not taking part in Eurovision. But in this document from TVP to the Polish media regulator, Eurovision is listed in the programme plan for 2015!
Whilst there’s been no direct confirmation from TVP (and it is only a plan), it’s definitely a sign that Polish participation in 2015 is very much on the cards. It’s noteworthy that there’s no other mention of Eurovision within the same document, which may imply that instead of a national selection contest, TVP could be opting for another internal selection.
The public quite openly welcomed Poland back to Eurovision in Copenhagen, where Cleo and Donatan taught us all to “shake what your momma gave ya” on their way to a 14th placed finish. That was the best result for Poland since 2003, although the country has never quite matched the heights that they reached on their debut, where Edyta Górniak finished second with “To nie ja!”
