Until February 2, TVP accepted songs from which an internal committee will choose the Polish representative for this year Eurovision Song Contest. So far, it is known that well over 200 proposals have been submitted. The performers who declared their participation include: Justyna Steczkowska (coach “The Voice of Poland”), Luna, Jan Górka, Natasza Urbańska, Marcin Maciejczak, Anna Jurksztowicz, Krystyna Prońko, Izabela Zabielska, Pan Savyan, Stashka, Nita, Sara Chmiel (vocalist of the group Tears and wife GromeePoland’s representative at Eurovision 2018), Bryska and Maciej Musiałowski.

It is known that the names of the members of the five-person TVP commission will be known only after the announcement of the Polish representative. The station has not yet revealed when it will officially reveal the artist who will perform for Poland in Malmö, Sweden.

According to reports from websites specializing in Eurovision, this will take place no later than Monday, February 19.

According to experts from the Eurovision Journal and, he has the greatest chance Justyna Steczkowska with a song “Witch-ER Tarohoro”. “The Voice of Poland” are also mentioned, among others: Luna (“The Tower”), “Nita (“Thunder”), Pan Savyan (“W Kolorku Amaretto”), Natasza Urbańska (“Who We Are”). Songs are waiting for their premiere Maciej Maciejczak (“Midnight Dreamer”) and Maciej Musiałowski (“Znak”).

Song “WITCH-ER Tarohoro” (listen!) was created in cooperation with the team Hotel Torinowho co-created hits for such stars as Viki Gabor, Kayah, Lanberry, Marcin Maciejczak, Alicja Szemplińska Whether Sarah James.

Steczkowska sang her song live for the first time during TVP’s New Year’s Eve in Zakopane (the singer has been the coach of “The Voice of Poland” shown on TVP for three editions).

Let us recall that Justyna Steczkowska represented Poland during Eurovision 1995 – her departure was decided by the entertainment department of TVP (its head was Andrzej Horubała). In Dublin with a song “Alone” she took 18th place out of 25 participants, which was received with disappointment because it was the year before Edyta Górniak (“It was not me”) finished in second place.

In later years, Steczkowska evaluated other candidates as a member of the Polish jury at Eurovision and during the Polish pre-selection for the contest.

European Broadcasting Union reported that during Eurovision 2024 37 countries will participate. Recall that all countries except the host Sweden and the Big Five (France, Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Germany) will be divided into two semi-finals, which will take place on May 7 and 9. The final is scheduled for May 11.
