Poland in Junior Eurovision 2019: Viki Gabor “Superhero”

Viki was chosen through TVP’s Szansa na sukces national selection format. It consisted of three semi-finals and a grand final. Out of an initial field of 21 contestants, Gabor emerged victorious in the three-song final on 29 September. “Superhero” topped both the jury and televote.

The young artist was previously a finalist on Poland’s The Voice Kids.  Her debut single “Time” was released in February 2019.

What do the “Superhero” lyrics mean?

Sung in Polish and English, Viki channels her inner Greta Thunberg with this positive, pop number. With hints of a Balkan beat, it urges us to “know what we are fighting for” and to become superheroes and save the world!

As Tulia showed us earlier this year, Polish is a beautiful and poetic language. And this tradition is certainly carried on with our girl Viki. Singing about being one with nature and the elements — climbing mountains, being free like the wind and dancing in the waves.

“Zabiorę Cię ze sobą ponad szczyty gór
Znajdziemy nas na nowo gdzieś w dolinie burz
Teraz mogę wolna być jak wiatr, tańczyć pośród fal”

I will take you with me to the tops of the mountains
We will find us again somewhere in the valley of storms
Now I can be free like the wind, dance in the waves

Powerful stuff!

The official music video perfectly matches the themes of the song. Set within nature, in the valleys of Poland’s stunning countryside, the Voice Kids runner-up is having fun with her friends, who are dancing beside her. She dons bright colourful clothes to match the inspiring ‘nature’ of the track.

Although Viki warns us all that “the clock is ticking”, the lyrics remain uplifting. They are filled with positivity, hope and love. It’s a message of coming together for one another and for the world. We can all make a difference, we can all be superheroes.

“The clock is ticking and the time has come
Spread the love now, fight for love now”

“So come together ’cause together we are one
Let’s build a home
A place that we call home, a place that we know
We are the superheroes, we can save the world”

What do you think of Poland’s chances? Can it do the double on home soil? Let us know in the comments. And click here to read more Junior Eurovision 2019 lyrics.

Polish text

Do you know what we’re fighting for?
The clock is ticking and the time has come
Spread the love now, fight for love now
Don’t judge
Do you know what we’re fighting for?

Powiedz tak i podziel się tym szczęściem
Cały świat naszym domem jest
Dobrze wiem, znalazłam swoje miejsce
Tyle pięknych chwil wciąż czeka na nas

We are the superheroes, we can save the world
So come together ’cause together we are one
Let’s build a home
A place that we call home, a place that we know
We are the superheroes, we can save the world

Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na

Dam ci na to słowo – możemy dziś
Ułożyć świat na nowo, na lepsze dni
Póki płonie w nas nadziei ogień
Dam ci na to słowo, że warto żyć

Powiedz tak i podziel się tym szczęściem
Cały świat naszym domem jest
Dobrze wiem, znalazłam swoje miejsce
Freedom is our call, it’s in my blood

Zabiorę Cię ze sobą ponad szczyty gór
Znajdziemy nas na nowo gdzieś w dolinie burz
Teraz mogę wolna być jak wiatr, tańczyć pośród fal
Nad nami niebo pełne spadających gwiazd

Zabiorę Cię ze sobą ponad szczyty gór
Znajdziemy nas na nowo gdzieś w dolinie burz
Teraz mogę wolna być jak wiatr, tańczyć pośród fal
Nad nami niebo pełne spadających gwiazd

Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na

We are the superheroes, we can save the world

English translation

Do you know what we’re fighting for?
The clock is ticking and the time has come
Spread the love now, fight for love now
Don’t judge
Do you know what we’re fighting for?

Say yes and share this happiness
The whole world is our home
I know well, I found my place
So many beautiful moments are still waiting for us
We are the superheroes, we can save the world

So come together ’cause together we are one
Let’s build a home
A place that we call home, a place that we know
We are the superheroes, we can save the world

Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na

I will give you my word – we can today
Re-create the world for better days
As long as hope burns in us
I’ll give you my word that it’s worth living for

Say yes and share this happiness
The whole world is our home
I know well, I found my place
Freedom is our call, it’s in my blood

I will take you with me to the tops of the mountains
We will find us again somewhere in the valley of storms
Now I can be free like the wind, dance in the waves
Above us, a sky full of shooting stars

I will take you with me to the tops of the mountains
We will find us again somewhere in the valley of storms
Now I can be free like the wind, dance in the waves
Above us, a sky full of shooting stars

Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na

We are the superheroes, we can save the world

It’s really good and probably going to win the televote even more comfortably than they did last year. Poland is one of the few countries that have an as good (or even better) than their last year’s.

Okay so this is a strange one. I like this entry. It is in my top 3. But I seem to have a strong desire for it not to win even though I love the song so much. 1. A country winning twice in a row is boring imo. I want something different. 2. I don’t want polish fans who say ‘poland is the best’ or ‘poland is better than everyone else’ to have the pleasure of winning again 3. Roxie’s song was original. This is not. Netherlands is my number one but I seem to enjoy that more than… Read more »

We have to be truly: Poland can easily win the televote, thanks to all polish people trying to support their artist – and that’s a fact. Period – but everything will be decided by the jury too – last year Poland came only 7 with the jury.

Sure Polish fans will vote for it but let’s face the truth. This is BY FAR the best entry in this JESC. Let’s see what she can give in stage but the song is already good enough to make the final (and why not a top 10) at the senior contest! This year there are 3 really (really) good songs imo (not original but they stay the best): Poland, Australia and Malta. There are 5 good songs that complete and impressive top 8: Spain, France, North Macedonia, Armenia and Serbia. Plus some others songs that are good enough for JESC… Read more »

About “polish people vote for themself”… This argument is brought up every single time we qualify in ESC, but somehow noone says anything when we haven’t qualify for 2 years in a row. This “polish diaspora” you’re talking about somehow exist only when we qualify and magically disappears otherwise. Sorry, but it’s just offensive. I can count people who knows who will represent Poland in JESC on one hand and probably none of them will even vote. Just because there’re some crazy people who yell the laudest, doesn’t mean that everyone cares that much. Eurovision is a meme for like… Read more »

Yeah just like other bigger countries!! In 2017 everybody could vote for their own country and Poland finished at 8th place!!

The problem with that you said just now is that whenever Poland does well in actual Eurovision, it gets blamed on the diaspora (The best example being Michal Szpak in 2016, which was HEAVLY blamed on polish diaspora, and yet literally two years later Poland can’t even qualify.)

This is not really my style. But objectively, there is nothing I can criticize. The strength of this entry is that the whole package works together (melody, instrumentation, lyrics, vocals, singer’s visual style). A lot of thought was put into this.

There is a pattern with the final result of the Youtube fan favorite in JESC:

2014: Bulgaria (2nd)
2015: Slovenia (3rd)
2016: Russia (4th)
2017: Belarus (5th)
2018: Kazakhstan (6th)
2019: Will Poland be 7th?

It seems the adult ESC fandom’s musical preferences might be slipping away from the JESC voters and juries.

I cannot stand this anti polish comments about winning JESC only because polish votes. Every country can vote for them! And believe me. Out of my friends nobody cares for JESC so it’s not that every Polish person voted or will vote. And countries like Russia, France, Ukraine or Spain are bigger than Poland so why them did not win last year? Polish song is really good this year so stop complaying and SHARE THE JOY!

Spain did not participate last year and France, Ukraine and Russia all have lower JESC viewing figures than Poland. Poland also had the highest viewing figures and most Polish people voted for Poland (due to them having the highest viewing figures they won the televote as most Poles voted for themselves).

Kinga
Guest
Kinga

Yeah, and now tell me how many votes did Roksana get. Don’t remember? I’ll tell you then. 150 000. Warsaw, the capital city got 1.7 ml citizens. So tell me now is 150 000 votes a lot or not? Why she did not get at least 2 ml votes if so many polish people voted? Please stop complaining. Roksana was the best. Period. If you watch reactions from people frpm all over the Europe you will see that mos of them liked the song. And when it comes to Viki she is even better than Roksana.

Cameron
Guest

I liked Poland last year, it was my number 2, only behind France, however, given that countries like Kazakhstan (132,000 viewers) and Wales (20,000 viewers) had less viewers than Poland did in televotes shows how Poland’s viewing figures were already going to put them at an advantage. Also, not everyone in Warsaw is going to watch Junior Eurovision and Poland still had 2.2 million viewers, one of the highest ones, giving them an advantage (2.2 million Poles massively outweighs 21,000 Israelis in terms of televotes) and therefore it is more likely for Poland to get the highest score.

In 2017 Poland was 8th because the song was average. Why Poland did not win then? The only problem is with the voting system. Poland for the second year in a rów sends very good songs and deserves at least Top 5

Wait the live to see if she’s a star… she has an original song but she didn’t wrote a word or thought a note of it. For the moment the only genius are the composers. If she’s able to make a live as good as the studio version than she can pretend to be a star.
Same for Wiktoria from Poland. You can say whatever you want but her song is good enough to be at the real ESC.

By the way, I’ve just heard “Superhero” on the radio, which to me comes as no surprise, as it’s a fairly radio-friendly song. With the right amount of luck it might become another big hit, like “AIWTB” had.

I’m not that type of person who blames Polish people for voting for their own country. That wasn’t the goal of my comment (plus it is not written in it). It is just that, to me, Viki’s song has nothing special. It sounds like a generic song to me contrary to the ones of the three other countries I mentioned (Spain, France and N. Macedonia). And I don’t see Viki winning the JESC for Poland. That’s all. I have nothing bad against the Poles. It is cool and lovely to have them support hard their representant. It is just that… Read more »

Yeah, I understand you but still that’s my reason why I don’t want my country to win. I like the song and I think it deserves TOP 5 but I really hope it won’t win.

Sorry Kinga but if Wiktoria slay on stage, then European will vote for her. I probably will. But I think I’ll vote for some others too^^
Don’t take the comments of the others too seriously. If they already complain about Polish people voting for Poland it’s because they know Wiktoria is a serious candidate for the victory. Like everyone I think the voting system is bad but as long as a good song wins the whole competition, then I’m happy.

Is it just me, or does anyone else get Bollywood-vibes from the music video? It makes me imagine a Bollywood-type staging for this song at the contest… I’m talking Viki in an Indian or Indo-Western outfit, maybe with four dancers, a LED backdrop showcasing a plethora of colors and traditional elements, maybe at some point there could be some playing/throwing of colored powder alluding to Holi (i.e., the festival of Spring, colors, and love), and ending with some (literal) fireworks that symbolize Diwali (i.e., the festival celebrating the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance).… Read more »

I find the current voting system pretty annoying, and I say that as a Pole myself. Winning the contest is one thing, winning the contest while every country is given an equal chance is a whole another one. The system we have now simply goes against the idea of Eurovision, and that needs to be changed.

Rasmus
Guest

I agree 100%. Poland is good this year. But small countries like NorthernMacedonia,Wales, Portugal, Serbia dont have chance with this sistem. I dont get why EBU think this sistem is good. Its the same countries in the top every year.

Mako

Yeah, but they’re a mess. Last year, they crowned Australia first while Jaelle’s performance wasn’t that good contrary to the ones of Kazakhstan, France and others … And Australia was my winner before the live competition ! So, they really need to change the televoting system.

Apparently the “tele voting” is web voting in the two days before the final and you can vote for your own country. Who comes up with these ideas?

This has been the case since 2017.

That makes it even worse. Nobody thought in those years that it might be a bad idea that favours some countries and disadvantages others? And the performance during the show is of no importance either.

Roy Moreno

I tend to agree, although you have to vote for at least 3 countries up to a maximum of 5
So even if you vote for your own country, you still have to vote for 2 others, so I guess it kinda balances it
Or at least this is what they were hoping for

Kris
Guest
Kris

But people can vote tactically
They can vote for their country and give the other two votes to countries that have no chances of winning
For example
So polish people vote Poland , Portugal and Wales !

And that’s how Portugal and Wales will get millions of votes 😛

If you think about it, that would greatly benefit those other two-four countries. That would only dilute the impact of the one you’re aiming to vote for the most.

Rasmus
Guest

In our swedish mello you can if you want register in another age pool in what you are. We have different age categories when we vote here. But they said the false voters would balance because we have so many that votes here. I hope it will be similar in JESC. But if EVERY pole vote for Poland it will be hard for Poland NOT to win. They are a lot.
