Hot off the release of her new music video for the hit “Cool Me Down”, rumors are flying that Margaret is indeed interested in representing Poland at Eurovision 2017.
What we can tell you for sure: A source close to Margaret — but not Margaret herself — previously told wiwibloggs that she is open to the idea of representing Poland in the future, though nothing has yet been confirmed. Telewizja Polska has also yet to reveal whether they will stage another round of Krajowe Eliminacje — their Eurovision selection in 2016 — or select their candidate internally, as was the case in 2014 and 2015.
Margaret finished second to Michal Szpak in the Polish national selection show earlier this spring after being the hot favorite to win with oddsmakers and Eurovision fans alike. When she unveiled her single “Cool Me Down”, Poland shot to the top of the pack and became the bookies’ overall favorite to win Eurovision 2016.
On May 17, three days after the Eurovision Grand Final, where Szpak finished 8th overall, Margaret released the music video for “Cool Me Down”.
It is a steaming ode to Margaret’s own ferocity and every woman’s intrinsic power, both as a sexual being and as an effeminate force to be reckoned with.
She paints a strong picture of female empowerment through the lyrics: “Got my high stilettos on fleek – no nothing can cool me down” and “I’m your goddess – on your knees – down, down, down…”.
The visually tantalizing video leaves us begging for more – and in the best way! Pyrotechnics, fierce dance moves, stunning visual effects, a dance sequence reminiscent of TLC’s 1995 video for “Waterfalls” and even a cameo by a very talented humpback whale. With all of that to compete with, Margaret still brings the heat and shines through the flames. This video has it all!
For those looking for relief from the summer heatwave, you can travel over to Sweden and cool down in style! It was just released that Margaret will perform alongside a slew of this year’s Melodifestivalen stars at the RIX FM Festival, taking place throughout the steamy weeks of August.
Margaret not only sings, but also holds a degree in fashion design, ya’ll!
If Margaret were to represent Poland at Eurovision in 2017, she would most definitely be a red-hot contender for Eurovision’s Next Top Model 2017. She might even grace us with one of her own designs on the Eurovision stage in Ukraine — and the thought gives us shivers!
