Edyta Górniak, the Polish representative at the 1994 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with the song To Nie Ja! has kept a relatively high profile in the eastern country since her participation, going onto release nine (9) studio albums, the last of which was My back in 2012. In recent weeks, she gave up her role as a judge on the Voice of Poland a popular production on TVP, the broadcaster responsible for the participation of Poland. This has prompted rumours that Edyta might be the first choice of the broadcaster as they return to the Eurovision Song Contest.

TVP, the broadcaster responsible for the participation of Poland in the Eurovision Song Contest is returning to the international competition following a two year break, noting that the last entry back in 2011 was Jestem sung by Magdalena Tul. Poland has never been successful at the event, only managing qualification on one (1) occasion, that being in 2008 thanks to Isis Gee and her entry For Life. Nevertheless, Edyta Górniak managed a first runner-up position back in Dublin, Ireland and the broadcaster thinks it best to succeed once more.

After a two year absence, TVP, the Polish public broadcaster has confirmed their return to the Eurovision Song Contest in May 2014. They have confirmed that a submission to be present in Copenhagen was made and details for a national final shall be announced sometime in January. Poland made their debut in 1994, when Edyta Górniak represented this country with the song To nie ja!. She managed to make Poland's debut a successful one by achieving 2nd place on the final night.

After that year Poland achieved a string of disappointing results except 2003 when Ice Troje feat. Real McCoy achieved 7th place. When the European Broadcasting Union made a number of amendments to the format of the Eurovision Song Contest, adding the semi-final stage to the competition, the results became even more disappointing with qualification assured only once, in 2008, with For Life performed by American/Polish singer Isis Gee. Poland's last entry at the Eurovision Song Contest was Jestem sung by Magdalena Tul back in 2011 but unfortunately, it did not garner a lot of support and finished in last place.

Poland: TVP Confirms Malmö Absence

The Eurovision Song Contest has been quite a daunting challenge for a couple of countries since the introduction of the semi-final system especially when one takes into account that success had been viable beforehand. As a matter of the fact, Poland a debutante in 1994 managed to do well only on their first try with Edyta Górniak obtaining a first runner-up finish with the song To Nie Ja. After that, the broadcaster had to wait quite some time for another top ten result, with Ich Troje managing a seventh place with Keine Grenzen-Żadnych Granic. Since the introduction of this current format, Poland has qualified from the semi-final once, that being in 2008 with Isis Gee and her song For Life but unfortunately have suffered in the three years following that noting that their last representative; Magdalena Tul finished in last place with her song Jestem. TVP have decided to withdraw once more from the Swedish edition taking place next year.

First in 2012, it was due to a number of issues principally the lack of funding due to the Olympics and the Euro competition but they have just made their minds up about non-participation in 2013 as well. The Chief Executive Officer at Polsat Television; Marcin Perzyna states that the Eurovision Song Contest has been focusing more on the show in recent years rather than the music and that there is the 'phenomenon' f voting for your neighbouring countries. Nevertheless, he also added that the competition is the best route in order to promote Polish artists but they haven't had any success in quite some time. Therefore, a withdrawal from Malmö has now also been confirmed with no real reason given to the European Broadcasting Union except that there was a lack of agreement on the issue. This is the second year in a row where they do not intend to compete and considering that they took part for sixteen years in a row, they will most likely return in the near future. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news as soon as it becomes available.
