Following the successes of the format for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, it’s no wonder that Poland has turned to Szansa na Sukces (Chance of Success) as its selection method for Eurovision 2020. Now, it appears we have more information on the show from!

The participants in this year’s Polish selection look set to be confirmed, with at least twenty of the 21 artists fighting for the Polish ticket to Rotterdam seemingly revealed. They are;

  • Adrian Makar
  • Albert Černý
  • Aleksandra Nykiel
  • Alicja Szemplińska
  • Amelia Andryszczyk
  • Basia Gąsienica Giewont
  • Emilia Sanecka
  • Kasia Dereń
  • Maja Hyży
  • Marek Kaliszuk
  • Nick Sinckler
  • Norbert Legieć
  • Patryk Skoczyński
  • Patricia Kazadi
  • Paulina Czapla
  • Sargis Davtyan
  • Saszan
  • Siostry Szlachta
  • Stashka
  • Weronika Curyło

Eagle-eyed Eurovision fans may recognise one name in particular from this list – Albert Černý – who may be better known as the lead singer of Charlie Straight and the Czech Republic’s representatives in Eurovision 2019, Lake Malawi! Albert was born in the Czech Republic but spent his elementary school years in Poland and still has connections to the country, and will be looking to make it two Eurovision participations in a row for different nations, much like Victor Crone in this year’s Melodifestivalen.

Another familiar name is Maja Hyży, who previously took part in the Polish selection for Eurovision 2018, finishing seventh with “Błysk” and losing out to Gromee and Lukas Meijer.

The Polish selection will be divided into three pre-recorded semi-finals and a final. The three semi-finals will see seven of the performers take on songs within a specific genre or category; ABBA’s discography (2nd February), Eurovision songs (9th February) and song from The Beatles (16th February). The artists going through to the final will then be decided by the panel consisting of former Polish Eurovision stars Cleo (2014), Michał Szpak (2016) and Gromee (2018).

The final of the competition will take place on 23rd February 2020.

Stay tuned to ESC United for more developments in the Polish selection and throughout the national final season!
