Ur hate on the poor girl is not acceptable. She is an okay singer and and great dancer with a catchy, fun and amazing song. I’m happy either way of Blanka or Jann winning! Her performance will be better and vocals will be improved. Everyone deserves a chance to be better and she’ll blow us away! You’ll maybe like her and her song later. Nothing was pushed in entering the contest and winning it which she came 2nd in public televote. Shows she has support and you should cope and accept her. F u blanka haters and misogynist trolls.

I recall that LEP had a somewhat similar situation in 2017 after Manel Navarro had won a competition in Spain but did not win the public vote. I was concerned that Manel would be treated poorly by some fans, but I was happy to he proved wrong that evening. Londoners loved Manel, from what I could see. Manel was super-charming and knew how to entertain the crowd, so as long as Blanka can do that in London then she should be fine, I hope.

Without wishing anything personally bad to Manel or Blanka, or supporting any kind of harrasment towards them, I do feel like questioning how either won their selection is justified. Both won only the jury vote in a relatively small jury. Both had professional ties with two of the jury members each. Both selections suddenly changed rules for the jury vote to outweight the televote in a case of a tie. Both juries significantly brought down the televote winner without an explicit explanation why. Again, I’m not condoning booing or actively making their time at ESC feeling less, but putting both… Read more »

As much as I am not impressed with the jury “situation” from the Polish national final or with a certain liked comment by the winning artist about Jann, I think it’s important to take a page out of Jann’s book when he said that he doesn’t want people to bully the winner (whether it was rightfully earned or not). If we are displeased or have a problem with the way things turned out at the Polish nf, then let’s just make that clear in May when it comes time to vote for the songs to go to the finale, rather… Read more »

Go Blanka! The Eurovision echo chamber is only a small part of the fandom and usually the loudest (their opinions are usually wrong). People who will tune in for your performance on the 11th of may will be positively surprised, which will then reward you a one way ticket into the grand-final (leaving the malcontents gobsmacked). Sky is the limit Blanka the silent majority is with you!!!

I had felt ambivalent for her before.

I think for most Poles, it’s not really a question of Jann or not at this point, but more about their broadcaster scamming them and promoting conservative values they don’t agree with. Jann might be back in a NF at some point, but there’s no telling TVP will not pull the same strings again (and from what I’ve read on comments from Polish people, they would have been fine with Dominik Dudek or Alicja winning, but Blanka has a different hstory behind her)

Just a heads up, if you’re getting contestants to talk to live stream viewers like last year, probably the safest bet with this is to not have Blanka go on a livestream. I dont condone what TVP have done in any way but there will be a lot of negativity in the chat if she would be in the building or joining the stream.

Im. just saying, Blanka reading comments such as ” I h*te you”, “You don’t represent us” or “withdraw” and im sure others in that same bracket could ig land any esc site in trouble. I want the ebu to find TVP guilty of fixing the selection and selecting Jann instead, I do because what happened was not right and im honestly disgusted that… Read more »

Accordingly, there is a comment attacking Ochman and Jann that ‘People like Jann from margins of society should never even perform in such competition.’ And Blanka liked it.

Before this, I personally do not have enough evidence to claim she bribe for the win, either (as Deban said in the reaction video, though suspicious, there is a possibility of the bad taste.)
