With the final of Poland’s Szansa na Sukces drawing ever closer, the winner of semi-final one Kasia Dereń has released her song for Eurovision “Ufaj Mi”.
Kasia Deren – “Ufaj Mi” (Szansa na Sukces 2020)
In the song, Kasia tells you that you can count on her in this pulsating, uptempo pop track.
The verses are sung in Polish and the undeniably catchy chorus is sung in English.
Kasia co-wrote the music with Piotr Walcki and the lyrics were written by Marcin Januszkiewicz and Mateusz Krautwurst, whom she worked with on her previous single “Something Special”.
Kasia Dereń was a finalist on the second edition of The Voice Poland. She’s already had some Eurovision experience representing her country. She was a backing vocalist for Gromee and Luka Meijer’s song “Light Me Up” at Eurovision 2018.
The 35 year old made it to the final via the first semi – the Abba hits round. She sang a rendition of “Mamma Mia” and wowed the panel of Polish Eurovision veterans Michal Szpak, Cleo and Gromee, who put her through to this weekend’s grand final.

Albert Černý “Lucy”
The track is seeped in Eurovision. Its songwriters include JOWST (Norway 2017), César Sampson (Austria 2018) and Lasse Piirainen (Finland 2017). The song itself is inspired by Lucy Ayoub — one of the co-hosts of the 2019 contest.
Albert will be joined by the remaining members of Lake Malawi — Jeroným Šubrt and Antonín Hrabal. However, he’s unsure whether all three would go to Rotterdam should Albert win the selection.
You’ll recall that Lake Malawi represented Czech Republic at Eurovision 2019 with “Friend Of A Friend”. They finished 11th.
Alicja Szemplińska has yet to reveal the name of her song. However, the contest favourite confirmed that her entry is written by Patryk Kumór, Dominic Buczkowski-Wojtaszek and Laurell Barker.
Kumór was involved with both of Poland’s Junior Eurovision winning entries. Barker is a prolific songwriter. In 2019 she had three songs compete at Eurovision for Germany, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
