She took Poland to the very top of the Eurovision 2016 betting odds with her single “Cool Me Down”, only to finish second to Michal Szpak in her country’s national selection.
And ever since then Margaret has been an idol among Eurovision fans, who watch her every move for evidence that she might return to Poland’s Krajowe Eliminacje in 2017.
So you can’t blame them for reacting very excitedly when a blogger named Josep Vinaixa uploaded a snippet of a track called “Over You”, reporting that that the Rihanna-esque number will be Margaret’s new single. Conveniently it’s reportedly set to be released on January 27 — the same day Poland reveals its Eurovision 2017 finalists. Eurovision 2009 contestant Arash, who also co-wrote Margaret’s hit “Cool Me Down”, has apparently worked on this song too.
Fans, clearly convinced that the song is destined for Eurovision, started uploading YouTube tributes with names like “Margaret OVER YOU Eurowizja 2017”.
Unfortunately their hopes have been burst just as soon as they were inflated.
Writing on Snapchat Margaret didn’t mince her words: “Someone has tricked you with that song ‘Over You’ for Eurovision.”
Now fans are torn about what to think, with some saying she’s just teasing everyone and that the song will be entered into the race. Still others say there’s no way she plans to try for Eurovision again following last year’s second-place finish. And we’re thinking that maybe — just maybe — she’ll sing the same song but with a different name. One can dream, right? We’ll just have to wait until Friday January 27 — when Poland reveals its finalists — to find out.
