Among the annual traditions of Eurofans is speculating whether Poland’s Edyta Górniak will return to Eurovision. Edyta — Poland’s debut entry — placed second at Eurovision 1994. It’s still Poland’s best result to date.
Speculation that she would compete this year has been hotting up and, as we learned today, it wasn’t baseless. Górniak has posted a message on Facebook that says she wanted to return to the contest this year because she has the perfect song. She approached TVP, but unfortunately her people “came back to me with the information that TVP’s artistic directors had someone else…I wanted to give you a beautiful surprise in this special year, but will have to do that in another.”
The single she wanted to sing at Eurovision will be included as a bonus track on her forthcoming album.
While we mourn the lost opportunity, let’s remember her at Eurovision 1994.
Are you sad that she won’t sing at Eurovision? Who could sing for Poland instead?
