After an internal selection last year, Poland has opted again for a national final in 2022 with ten songs in the mix. These ten artists are set to battle it out on 19 February for the chance to bring the country back to the Eurovision grand final for the first time since 2017. While we’re still a fortnight away from Poland’s Tu bije serce Europy! Wybieramy hit na Eurowizję, nine of the ten competing songs are already out.
Tu bije serce Europy! Wybieramy hit na Eurowizję translates as “The heart of Europe beats here! We choose the hit for Eurovision”.
The list of songs already out for Poland’s Eurovision 2022 selection includes Lidia Kopania, who represented the country in 2009, and Siostry Szlachta (Szlachta Sisters) who competed in the Polish selection in 2020. Daria is also in the mix, with her song “Paranoia” having passed the 12 million views mark on YouTube. Poland has picked up a lot of momentum with the bookies as of late, with some odds shortening to around 8/1. This means that this national final could be one to keep a very close eye on!
Of the competing artists, The Voice of Poland alum Emilia Dębska is the only one yet to release her song, “All I Need”. Here are the remaining nine songs that have all been released from Poland’s 2022 selection.

‘Tu bije serce Europy! Wybieramy hit na Eurowizję’ Show Details
This is a new national selection for Poland. Unlike the last selection in 2020, where a singer was chosen from a series of semi-finals, this year’s representative will be chosen from one show. A 50/50 combination of votes from the televoting public and a professional jury will determine which act and song will wave Poland’s flag at Eurovision 2022 in Turin.
The show will be held at Studio 5 of TVP in Warsaw, and will be broadcast live on TVP2 on 19 February. Poland is one of the countries yet to win Eurovision, so we will see if any of the ten competitors have what it takes to change that.
So what do you think of the nine songs released so far in Poland’s Eurovision 2022 selection? Which is your favourite? Do you think any of them can bring the country its first Eurovision victory this May? Let us know below!
