Following the 2019’s Junior Eurovision success with the victory of Viki Gabor, Polish broadcaster TVP has decided to use the same selection method to find its representative in Eurovision 2020.
The senior version of Szansa na Sukces will be the method chosen by the TVP to select its next representative in Eurovision with which they expect to have the same results obtained with the junior version of the show.
Artists with Polish citizenship or residents of Poland interested in being part of the competition and aspiring to represent Poland in Rotterdam next May may send their applications until January 12 by sending an email to [email protected] in which they must include First name, Last name, date of birth, Current residence, phone number, Email address and MP3 file (artist demo).
The official rules are provided in polish in the following link.
The selection process will consist of three stages:
- First stage (participants selection): participants taking part in the 3 elimination heats of Szansa na Sukces will be selected.
- Second stage (qualifying rounds): each heat will consist of 6-7 participants and a jury will be in charge of selecting the winner of the qualifying round who will get the direct pass to the final. The organization reserves the right to grant the so-called “Golden Ticket” to any of the participants, the participant who receives the golden pass will join the three winners of the qualifiers in the final.
- Third stage (final): The three finalists plus the participant with the “Golden Ticket” (if awarded) will face for the last time in the final where they will perform two songs each (the original song with which they would take part in Eurovision and another already known song). The winner will be chosen through the mixed vote between the jury and televoting. In case of a tie, the jury vote would prevail.
The 2020 edition of Szansa na Sukces will be held between February 2 and February 23 and will consist of four shows (3 qualifiers and the final):
- Heat 1: February 2
- Heat 2: February 9
- Heat 3: February 16
- Final: February 23
