Re: POLAND 2018
I have mixed feelings about jury points for Poland.
On the one hand, I think our bad results in jury voting is more like an acumulation of bad coincidentes than "hate" or something. I don't feel like it's a conspiracy. When I see how juries vote in every country I feel like this is not "professional" group of five, but just random people with their own tastes and beliefs. I remember that I was very upset when they gave us a few points in 2014, because in my opinon this is our best entry ever and finishing at 5th position in televoting proves that. Anyway, I CAN imagine why they didn't vote for Poland in 2014, 2015 and 2016, but I must admit that so weak result of Kasia surprised me a little bit.
That's why on the other hand I feel kind of dissapointed as well. It would be more fair if power of jury votes was like 25%, not 50. Look at this year's result of Australia. Juries have too much power and sadly for Poland, we can discuss about it every year. That's why people are upset - I mean in general, not only in Poland but hey - just read this forum.
I agree, all the competiton is not only about song and performance (but this is VERY important ofc) but this is about personal taste, neighbours, tactic and running order as well, especially in jury part of voting. In Poland, there was a belief that Kasia Moś' song is jury-friendly and we still got only few points. It's funny how we are excided about 12 points from every country and it takes a while to announuce all those "12" and in fact... very often this is not even connected with taste of particular nation, because 5 people voted one way or another.
Speaking of POLAND 2018, I can see that Carmell (winner of televoting, not jury voting in NF 2017
) is going to participate one more time. She liked every simple comment on Facebook when fans asked her to do it. She just released her debut music video and this is good.
But as I said, the most imporant thing is A SONG. So I don't want to speculate. Look at Belgium this year, Blanche voice is not spectacular and many people think that she is untalented and can't sing. She finished 4th. In my opinion "Cool Me Down" would have this kind of result though there was a lot of hate of Margaret, but she is officialy out of the list and she said that she is not interested in participating in the future.
We'll see. This is just a tv-show.
I hope we won't withdraw.
Poland is on the road, good track. It would be stupid to go down now. I expect a good song and finally good staging, pleaaassseee.
But Kasia should be a little bit higher, true.
