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.

A post shared by Bądźmy Razem. TVP (@badzmyrazem.tvp)

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? 
#BądźmyRazem rozśpiewani”

English translation:

“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.

Who do you want to see represent Poland next year? What type of song do you want to hear Poland send to Rotterdam? Let us know in the comments below.

Sanah is going to announce “something big” on Friday so we may have another “suspect” on the list…

Its is possible that TVP will give some clues before Friday. Yesterday TVP posted a short clip on “TVP Eurowizja” page on Facebook. It’s a clip form “Pytanie na sniadanie”. They briefly confirmed that the song will be released on Friday and they revealed that it’s going to be a solo artist (male or female). So no Alicja and Krystian as a duo.

It’s quite certain that Poland will send Rafa? Brzozowski. ;< Today a lot of polish media sites have reported the information, some of them along with a song title which allegedly is "The ride" (the ride.. from the semifinal straight to home </3)

It looks like it is Brzozowski after all. Rumour has it, he was filming his video last Friday.

So Poland will stay in the semi finals again. Shame.

Rafa? is amazing singer. She can sing, have a big personality and he is very handsome (gay in Poland love him a lot, he is a symbol o polish playboy). I believe he is the first artist who could win that contest for Poland. One and only, maybe beside Magda Narozna (remember her name). Can’t wait to see you Rafa?. Europe will love you soooo much ?

Can anyone explain what has this man done to be regarded this way by everyone? I’m not Polish, so I don’t know what his personality is like (is is arrogant or something?). I was among the very few who liked his 2017 song, but I can see why so many did not. Still, that is *one song*. Is his discography only full of songs people don’t like? I am a bit lost here.

I don’t think he did anything in particular, he just tends to be a bit cheesy and cringy. I do not think it has much to do with his 2017 song because apart from Eurovision fans, no one in Poland seems to remember it or care about it. I don’t really follow Polish music that much but it seems that he does not really sing much these days. He works for TVP, where he was a host of one TV show, now he is a host of another one. Both shows are game shows that are quite cringy, they are… Read more »

Fingers crossed but – no matter what – breakfast program on Friday is not the best platform to promote your entry when majority of people will be working. That’s disappointing. At least Monika Kuszynska, who was the most recent internal choice, was announced at 6:40 pm – almost primetime.

From what I read only the artist will be announced during that breakfast show. It’s very popular. We’ll, at least it was 11 years ago when I still lived in Poland. From that blurp it looks like the song will be presented later during the day.

I don’t understand the secrecy over their entry and why they want to announce it so late. Not sure if it’s a good sign or not. However, if it was Alicja they would’ve announced her earlier.

But Alicja already made it clear last year she would love to be chosen one more time and it looks like she hasn’t changed her mind. TVP doesn’t need to persuade anyone.

I’m starting thinking that’s it’s quite possible Alicja and Krystian will sing together, especially that he said in one interview something like “I wouldn’t perform alone but gladly with Alicja”. Maybe it was a hint. In that way TVP would give Alicja a second chance without ditching her and Krystian, as the next winner of The Voice of Poland (apparently it has became the major unofficial ESC national final) would get his change as well. Fair situation.

That would be pretty but Poles are like 99% sure that they won’t sing together. The chance of sending Alicja is surely bigger that chance of sending Krystian, but there are some other possible names we Poles talk about

Switch out Catholic with Protestant/Evangelical (though there can be crazy Catholics too), and that’s also America in a nutshell. Granted, it’s not a majority, but there’s enough of them to hold us back.

Myg – the Russian selection and UK’s song are the two remaining highlights of the season for me. I need to watch the selection hopefully with commentary in English. Surely wiwi will make a special post about it.

It’s scheduled on 8 March.

Alicja would be my choice with a Polish-made song that is not polished by foreigner songwriters or producers or such.

I am not that excited to be honest – last year’s selection was strange and the song cliché. Now we get this announcement a few days before the release with only speculations in the past year. The only redeeming factor would be Alicja.

I was told that Ewelina Lisowska’s W Sercu Miasta Should be re recorded by Rita Ora with English lyrics. It’s so good. Dawid Kwiatkowski’s Bad Habits seems to be a popular track on my playlist as well. People even enjoy Letni Wiatr. 😛

Krystian Ochman. But I’m sensing it’s not so much about a good singer than it is about whether they have a good song. I have nothing against Alicja being chosen again, if they don’t give her a song as abysmal as last year’s.
