Poland has selected who will be flaying their flag at this year’s Junior Eurovision to be held in Valletta (Malta). Olivia Wieczorek will perform the song “Nie zapomnij”, composed by Piotr Rubik and lyrics by Dominik Grabowski, on November 20 after having won the national final with the support of juries and audience.
A total of 9 candidates battled for the right to represent Poland in the international competition:
- Dominika Ptak – Kropla
- Julia Chmielarska – Na skrzydłach dni
- Ania Dąbrowska – Fryzurka
- Arfik – Tango dla Kotów
- ASMki – Do końca świata
- Olivia Wieczorek – Nie zapomnij
- Ula Dorosz – Życie to nie gra
- Amelia Andryszczyk – Marzenia
- WAMWAY – Zróbmy hałas
The winner was decided by a 50-50 mix of public televote and jury panel, made up of Margaret (Runner-up of Polish final for Eurovision 2016), Ania Wyszkoni (Participant of Polish final for Eurovision 2004) and Marcin Kusy (Radio producer). Destiny, winner of Junior Eurovision 2014, performed as guest of the show her winning entry “Not my soul” and Dami Im’s “Sound of silence”, which finished second at Eurovision 2016.
Poland is back for Junior Eurovision 2016 after an absence of 12 years. Will they be lucky enough to reach a better place than in 2003 and 2004?
