Polaczki jak zwykle zaglosowali na wyjacego “wyciskacza lez”!! Wy nigdy zadnej eurowizji nie wygracie jak bedziecie glosowac tylko i wylacznie na takie wyjace piesni!!! Caly swiat zachwycony byl piosenka Margaret ale oczywiscie wyjec musial u was wygrac! Tfuuuu.. DEBILE!!!
Edyta, with powerful voice. Her song is dark, emotional, mysterious.
Hi! Polish people, if you don’t choose this track you’re going to make a huge mistake.. let’s go Margaret!?
Margaret FTW! It’s going to win in Sthlm or at least reach top-3 easily. I can’t stop listening to this song. Is it just me or is the Polish NF the strongest one so far. 7/9 songs are in my love/like category.
A better link for the studio version of Edyta’s song
Definitely Micha? Szpak. His song is inspiring and he is an incredibly gifted & versatile vocalist, with an amazing vocal range. Not as heavily promoted as Margaret, not as experienced as Edyta Gorniak, but already showing signs of true greatness. He may still be underrated, but once you hear him live, you know he’s an artistic personality to be reckoned with.

Please replace Edyta’s video with the new audio version made available through YouTube. Thanks! 🙂
I’m baffled about the hype. Cool Me Down is a dumb Rihanna ripoff – it’s basically Run This Town at a higher speed. Very 2009 – haven’t we had enough of that by now? Edyta’s song has no dynamics, goes nowhere, doesn’t even seem like a finished song.
There are some nice songs here, but the excitement around Poland seems very misplaced.
1 – Margaret, Cool Me Down (and potential ESC winner)
2 – Michal Szpak, Colour of Your Life
3 – Kasia Mos, Addiction
4 – Edyta Gorniak, Grateful
The rest can either bow out gracefully, or pull a sickie. 😀
Poland is a strong bet to win ESC 2016.
Everybody thought Simone was going to win in Denmark, and look what happened there. Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.
For me also it looks as joke. Margeret on first place with more than 3 times better result than 2nd place and 9 times better result than 3rd place. It is impossible.
I hope this survey is just a joke, there is only one possible winner, Cool Me Down!!!!!
Margaret ofc! Poland could potentially win ESC if they pick her.
I honestly think if “Cool Me Down” wins Krajowe Eliminacje it could potential bring victory to Poland in Stockholm! It’s such a good song!
Margaret only!!!! Cool Me Down would be a hit across Europe and would give other powerhouse countries like Sweden and Russia a run for their money!!!! The only decent song this year. Poland please choose Margaret!!!!!
I was initially rooting for Edyta (Eurovision legend! Doesn’t that count for something with you people?)…but Margaret’s song is so good. Now I’m torn.
Margaret song is sooo repetitive… It’s like if I have heard it before, very commercial. I dont really like it.
The only song I actually like is Ola Gintrowska – missing
Most probably mass of Pokemons love Margaret, but this must change in future.
“Cool Me Down” will get a “Haba Haba” treatment in Stockholm for sure
Margaret is Rihanna’s copycat, absolute rubbish.
I would rank the finalists this way:
1. Natalia 2. Edyta 3. Taraka 4. Margaret
are the other songs good? i don’t even care pressing play on the other songs because all everyone’s been talking is margaret, margaret, margaret! personally, i love it and i hope poland will pick her and all of us can focus on other countries. 🙂
Wow! Margaret is killing this poll! Cool Me Down ftw!
Feeling the hype and loving it! Margaret FTW
Cool Me Down is fine, but not feeling the hype about it.
Taraka are so underrated!
I like Margaret, Kasia Mos and Dorota Osinska(such a beautiful song). Wish you luck, Poland. I hope next year Eurovision will return to Eastern Europe (Warsaw or Kyiv 😉 ).
I like Margarets Song. Bur i have heard IT before. Topp 5
I like this Song. But i have heard it before. Topp 5
Margaret will win this and im rooting for a high place for Poland!
I was all for Grateful and then I heard the banger that was cool me down and now I’m rooting for Poland 2017
I really don’t get the cod-caribbean accent on Cool Me Down, I find it really off-putting. I guess it will probably win the national selection because of all of the hype, but I don’t think it will do nearly as well in Stockholm as the bookies suggest.
I’m really excited about Margaret’s song. It truly deserves the victory. Maybe they should arrange it a little bit, add some more beats and change some lyrics to make it more dynamic and less repetitive. Anyway, GOOD LUCK POLAND!
MGR – you’re an idiot, and know nothing about Margaret so stfu
Margaret. Funny to see Napoli. Last again in my ranks.
Also has Mario reincarnated to MGR? Dear lord… 😉
It’s simple, Poland needs finally send something up tempo like Margaret’s great song because if we keep sending ballads, we will always end in the 20 place and Michal Szpak has great voice but Eurovision is a SONG contest not a Voice contest !! Margaret will be in top 5!!!!!
Margarets song sounds like a track from rihannas album, flawless
I may be biased in this case, being a Pole myself, but this is actually a really nice set! I’d love for either Margaret or Dorota to go to Stockholm, but I actually also really like Edyta and Ola Gintrowska. The only performances I’m not too fond of are Napoli and Kasia Mos.
Maybe happines of one person comes from the stupidity of other people?
Maybe Margaret is favorite, because she is lucky in life? So what is happiness?
I thought it was obvious before you asked this question. Of course Margeret because of the hype LOL.
There is only one good Napoli in this world – SSC Napoli.
Why do some people need help, and others do not? Why do people help weak people? Is it really worth it? Are there any of the greater profits than the satisfaction?
It’s between NAPOLI or Margaret for me – those two can pull off a formidable performance for Poland at the Eurovision; The rest are mediocre acts and I doubt if Poland sent Edyta, they’d do well. Repeat offenders to the Eurovision don’t do so well unless they’re Helena Paparizou, Johnny Logan (and possibly Greta Salome since most people are ranking her inside the Top 10/5/3 of their Eurovision rankings). Re: NAPOLI – she should stop trying to sing “My Universe” live with a pitch higher than the studio version (and that was the mistake she made in Belarus – the… Read more »
If I’m cancer, you must help me. If you do not do this, it will mean your weakness.
Cool Me Dow needs TRAP remix. It already has some motives of trap sounds, but it need more of it.
MGR maybe you’re a troll and noone really cares what you’re talking about 🙂
