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 Sisterswho 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 2022’ songs released so far in Poland

Ania Byrcyn – “Dokąd?

Daria – “Paranoia”

Karolina Lizer – “Czysta woda”

Karolina Stanisławczyk feat. Chika Toro – “Move”

Krystian Ochman – “River”

Kuba Szmajkowski – “Lovesick”

Lidia Kopania – “Why Does It Hurt”

Siostry Szlachta – “Drogowskazy”

Unmute – “Głośniej niż decybele

‘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!

So much negativity here @wiwiblogs! Sooo entertaining! Thank you guys 🙂 I actually am very exited to see PL selection (p.s. do you know were can you watch it in the UK?) Clearly we have few standouts: Daria – Maybe it is a bad bad pranoia but I am crazy for that girl Ochman – jury definitely will appreciate it, public? hmmm Unmute – can’t wait to hear it in a good London club at 5:00 am Definitely TOP3 (no particular order!) Good luck Poland! P.S. Love you all music experts, but please consider some meditation, have few drinks or… Read more »

Maybe TVP didn’t want any anger directed towards them if River doesn’t perform as expected, as it happened last year with Rafal.
Still, it’d be cool if Poland stuck around to this NF from now on.

watch Poland winning with river, either juries or televoting. Didn’t they come 3rd in 2016 with a very mediocre performance/entry? So anything can happen now, i don’t think it’s going to be a strong year (too early to tell i know)

I have been disappointed by the national final songs and their quality so far (except Spain)

For me there is only one obvious choice: Ochman. I love River and I know that live he will be even better.

I am aware that many people don’t get the hype over the odds, but you should simply don’t care about them. It’s too early to predict anything.

Still, I think that only Krystian has a chance to get to the top 10. And for me it’s more than enough.

Paranoia and River are the obvious front runners here. Still don’t get why they are doing this NF and why they changed their plan I mean if they want Krystian absolutely which is obvious too, why spending money and time for this instead of going internal and saving money for an incredible staging.
Paranoia is already a huge hit so I don’t know if it will influence people in their votes, but it’s risky for Krystian maybe.

Surely I can’t be the only one to think that Unmute would just be Poland’s Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät, right? Also, I don’t see how it could compete as it doesn’t abide by the rules.

But well, I guess in the end it’s going to be ‘River’ anyway.

Reply to  Nils

The fact you have to say “it doesn’t abide by the rules” is kind of the point of the entire song, to acknowledge that sign language is a real and important language, even if not spoken word. It is complete and recognized language and rejecting it would be overtly discriminatory. I think it has its place as a statement maker for this contest, but it is absolutely not a competitor to win for sure.

I understand the intention (by the way, did you notice the mention of advertising agency Serviceplan in the credits roll of the music video?), but I really don’t believe the EBU will allow them to participate since otherwise they would create a precedent that might ultimately turn out to be harmful for the contest as a whole.

To people saying whether there’s winner material among these or not: Poland hasn’t even qualified SINCE 2017 and even then ended up at 22nd spot or something around that. Fact that people are even considering something from Poland to end up high in GL is mindblowing for fans here. That’s way more than enough

I’m surprised by people falling all over River. I think it’s decent but left me slightly cold and found it a bit repetitive. I think his success is driving more love for it versus if it was a no-name singer. Shocked so many feel it could be ESC winner.

Lol let me guess you’re not shocked that Brividi could be considered by some people as a potential winner but for River yes, give me a break. River is 100 times more powerful and interesting than Brividi, and wouldn’t be a boring and disappointing winner.

Krystian Ochman has been my Eurovision dream since he released his debut single “Swiatlocienie” so for me the choice is clear. I like the way he combines opera singing with pop sound. He is an excellent singer and didn’t disappoint my expectations with River. This song stuck in my head from the first listen. Honestly I don’t remember any song from Polish preselections that satisfied my taste as much as this one. Big NO for Paranoia, it gives me ‘The Ride’ vibes – generic uptempo with flat and monotonous beat. I don’t want another song like this from my country… Read more »

Unmute could be interesting if they finished the song. In its current form it has no melody, no vocals which is a must in Eurovision and it’s too short. I’m glad they were included but at the same time baffled how they passed the selection committee. I really hope they called and managed to convince them to finalize the song.

As it stands it’s pretty clear that River is winning. It’s good but nothing extraordinary. The most important part – the chorus is the weakest part. It would sail into the Final but I don’t see it above 10th place.

“Blow this town” means to leave or get away from the town. I’m pretty sure that’s the usage here, like how you would say “let’s blow this joint” to mean to leave a place.

I’m really intrigued by Unmute – it would certainly generate attention and buzz ahead of the contest.

Rivers will probably win, though it doesn’t excite me as much as it does other people. Kind of reminds me of “Truth” by Chingiz – a good song, but not an ESC winner.
