It’s the country that managed to come third in the televote at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016.

And now broadcaster TVP is hoping that Poland can go two places better at Eurovision 2017 as it prepares to stage Krajowe Eliminacje — its national selection for Eurovision.

The Polish broadcaster revealed its ten finalists on Super Saturday — just as seven other national selections were kicking off their evening’s proceedings. It seems that Poland is ready to disrupt the order of things at Eurovision.

Among the 10 finalists is Martin Fitch, who Eurovision fans will remember as Marcin Mrozinski from Eurovision 2010. He was the one with the pretty ladies and all the apples, who ultimately finished 13th in his semi-final (he did much better in our search for Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model, where he finished as runner-up).

Speaking to wiwibloggs at the London Eurovision Party 2014, the 31-year-old stunner explained that he had to design the stage show by himself. Now, with a blossoming TV and music career that he divides between the UK and Poland, he’ll be back and stronger than ever — and with support to create a stage show that slays.

Other names our readers will know — or should get to know fast — is Kasia Mo?, the singer who kickstarted her career as a finalist on the third edition of talent show Must Be The Music. She placed sixth at last year’s national selection with “Addiction” before posing on the cover of Playboy magazine. She’s not just a pretty voice.

And then there’s Paulla, whose 2008 single “From Today” topped the charts. Her album “Never say forever” climbed to #2 the same year. Rafal Brzozowski, a former wrestler, took part on The Voice of Poland in 2011, ultimately being eliminated just before the final. No matter. His single “Tak Blisko” climbed to #2 on the airplay charts anyway.

Melodifestivalen fans may notice that Swedish songwriter Fredrik Kempe has a song in the contest. The “Undo” and “Popular” hitmaker is now behind “Voiceless” by Isabell Otrebus-Larsson. She’s a young Polish-Swedish singer who previously featured on Poland’s Got Talent in 2014.

Fans have noticed that missing from the list is pop star Gosia Andrzejewicz. She was expected to be part of the 2017 line-up. Also missing is 2016 runner-up Margaret. Earlier in the year, fans had wondered if her upcoming single “Over You” was intended as a Krajowe Eliminacje entry. At the time she confirmed it was not, and now it appears that neither “Over You” nor any other song from Margaret will be competing in the Krajowe Eliminacje final.

Can someone tell me why all these songs are so damn dated and cheaply produced? And I thought Poland would win soon… bring back Edyta at this point!

As a Pole, I’m hoping to see Lanberry qualify, I was always low-key hoping she’d take part in the preselections and thankfully she’s in (not saying the other singers are bad – though I’m not very fond of some of them – but Lanberry is the kind of artist I’d like to see represent us)

it’s beyond ridiculous that less than a week before the final we still haven’t been given a chance to listen to all the songs
for God’s sake, do not choose Rafa? or Paulla
but Polish jury seems to have very poor taste – it would not surprise me at all if they voted for one of them

Stop whining about hellolove, they never confirm their application. I think it would be pretty good selection. TVP this time choose songs and not the stars. Till now my fav is Kasia Mos

Gosia Andrzejewicz is a wannabe star in Poland but nobody listens to her songs. They are really cliche. So in fact – it’s a good news she isn’t on the list. 😉

I really want Aneta Sablik to win the National Selection (She’s quite famous here in German, because she won “Deutschland Sucht Den Superstar” (“”…..Idol”) and is a very talented singer.. Unfortunately her song isn’t that good…

Aneta Sablik’s song sounds like one of those cheap remixes you’d hear at the beach in 2012. I hope there’s something good in this selection, because I’m clueless about the other names. And ugh, no Gosia Andrzejewicz 🙁
