Poland wakes up! There are only a couple of weeks left for broadcasters to submit their entries for Eurovision 2021 and fans have been left scratching their heads with Poland’s silence. Local media has been speculating over who will fly the Polish flag in Rotterdam this year, but there has been no info whatsoever from TVP — Poland’s national broadcaster.
Well that’s just changed. TVP has announced that we will finally find out who will represent Poland in Rotterdam during the morning TV program “Pytanie na śniadanie” on the 12th of March.

In their Instagram post, the broadcaster wrote:
“Halo Europo Nareszcie możemy Wam zdradzić polską piosenkę na
Eurovision Song Contest 2021
Ogłoszenie już w najbliższy piątek w
Pytanie na śniadanie w TVP2
Już się nie możemy się doczekać, a Wy?
“Hello Europe! We can finally reveal to you a Polish song at Eurovision Song Contest 2021
The announcement this Friday in “Pytanie na śniadanie” on TVP2
We can’t wait anymore, what about you?
# Let’s sing together”
Who could represent Poland at Eurovision 2021?
It’s still not clear if Alicja Szemplińska, the winner of last year’s Polish National final “Szansa Na Sukces”, topping the jury and public vote, can finally reap the rewards of her national “Sukces” and represent the Poles this year in Rotterdam. The “Empires” singer has made it very clear that she does want to participate.
Back in July, Alicja told local media that she had not heard anything about Eurovision 2021, but noted that she was “waiting patiently”. She added, “I believe that in my heart I will be there next year and I am writing lots of new songs.”
Rumours in the press have been flying. Some media sites have disregarded Alicja’s chances of returning. Polish music site All About Music made the claim that Poland’s Eurovision 2020 singer is no longer in the running for Eurovision 2021. However, other sites including Polish Eurovision blog Eurowizja.org are still including Alicja on their list of potential artists.
Another name being mentioned is Rafał Brzozowski. The singer, TV host and former wrestler is best known to Eurovision fans as the co-host of Junior Eurovision 2020.
Rafał had a previous attempt at Eurovision. In 2017, he competed in the Polish national final with the peace ballad “Sky Over Europe”. The song finished in second place, just three points behind eventual winner Kasia Moś.
