It’s been a while since we’ve heard any Eurovision news from Poland, but Donatan, who represented the country at Eurovision 2014 together with Cleo, has just made a very bold claim. Writing on his Facebook page, Donatan stated that Cleo will return to Eurovision in 2016 thanks to her international success. Is he having a laugh or will THE Slavic girl actually make a comeback?
Translated that goes something like this:
It seems that everyone has already guessed that, so we can say it straight — Cleo will sing at Eurovision again in 2016. There is a huge interest in her music abroad — take a remix of “Zabiore Nas” by BASTA as an example. A lot of things went very dynamic and some of them that seemed to be impossible are now facts! It’s even more pleasant to say that such a boost in her career is partly my accomplishment. Wanna achieve something? — Work with me! It’s f*cking hard, but it’s worth its!
In the comments under his post he jokes about a song he might write, but amid the joking manages to express his political views: “Germans cry, France cries — what did tolerance give them?” Donatan is known for controversial jokes such as these — remember his infamous remarks in 2015 that he wanted to stage a “straight march” on the streets of Vienna?
Meanwhile, Donatan threw some shade on Michal Szpak, who is rumoured as a potential candidate for Poland. Responding to a comment that “people want Michal Szpak”, he wrote that he is straight and prefers Cleo. Thanks for the reminder…
However, nothing has been confirmed by Polish broadcaster TVP, which announced long ago that the representative won’t be revealed until the end of February. So can we trust Donatan with this? Watch this space…
