It’s starting to become a a bit of a tradition. Every year Edyta Gorniak — Poland’s first Eurovision representative — publicly considers returning to the contest. Edyta, one of Poland’s biggest and brightest stars, placed second at the 1994 contest held in Dublin with “To nie ja” (It wasn’t me). Since then she has remained a fan favorite to represent Poland — and it looks like it might just happen in 2016.
In a Facebook post published on Tuesday, Edyta simply asked fans “I need to know how you feel about it?” accompanied by a picture of the Eurovision logo. As you’d expect, fan reactions have been extremely positive. If their opinion really matters to her, she should just go for it as most of them are suggesting.
It is not the first time Edyta has teased us with her so-called big return. Just last year, all signs pointed to a comeback and fans were ecstatic about the idea. In the end Edyta indeed approached TVP just to find out that the artistic directors had already selected Monika Kuszynska.
This year TVP is resurrecting their national final. Given her star power — and ability to draw an audience — Edyta would not be rejected if she applies, so let’s keep our fingers crossed that she takes the plunge. The final will take place on March 5.
