Poland: Marcin Mroziński Interested in ComebackWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
One of the countries that missed out on competing in this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest is Poland citing a number of financial concerns especially after being co-organizers of this years' European Championship in football. The nation did not believe in putting music above sports due to the fact the results have not really been that positive for them in recent years. Their debut way back in 1994 could not have been any better with To Nie Ja sung by Edyta Gorniak finishing in the runner-up position after impressing the juries on the night. It is yet unknown on whether they will be coming back to the competition but early indications seem to follow such hypothesis and one artist has definitely made himself available for the role of representative should the people want him to return.
Marcin Mroziński created a lot of flair in Malta due to the fact that he and Thea Garrett, our representative at the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest became very close indeed and then would ultimately go onto release a single together composed by Jason Cassar and penned by Sunny Aquilina entitled In Our Love. In recent months, the Polish performer has been working on new material, very different than what people are used to and therefore, he would love to share his latest ventures with the European audience. In fact, his exact words are as follows; 'I am ready to do it. My song would be completely different than Legenda. More pop oriented, maybe up-tempo. With a catchy and simple melody. A great, big show with fireworks and good energy.'
Marcin spoke about the way he would see the process in his country developing saying that they should follow the German system used this year and in 2010 which saw to top two ten results actually, one of them being a victory thanks to Lena-Meyer Landrut and her song Satellite. The fact of the matter remains that choosing the artist and then selecting the song for him through a mixture of public and jury vote would definitely work better. The Polish broadcaster, TVP has been very resonante to change and therefore, it might be too late to consider such a system like Unser Star fur Baku but maybe in the future, his ideas might be taken up nevertheless. Honestly, we would definitely not mind seeing Marcin back with a stronger entry this time round. Legenda finished in thirteenth place within the semi-final just one spot below Malta and our track My Dream. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more such news in the coming days.
