  4. Ifi Ude – Love is stronger
  5. Future Folk – Krakowiacy i górale
  6. Gromee feat. Lukas Meijer – Light me up
  7. Marta Gałuszewska – Why don’t we go
  8. Pablosson – Sunflower
  9. Maja Hyży – Skin
  10. Happy Prince – Don’t let go

Poland has been using the show Krajowe Eliminacje since 2016. In that year, Michal Szpak placed eighth in the Grand Final of Eurovision with his song “Colour of Your Life”. He received 229 points overall. That year, Kasia Mos came in 6th place with her song Addiction.

In 2017, after winning Krajowe Eliminacje, Kasia Mos qualified for the final of Eurovision and went on to finish 22nd in Kyiv with a total of 64 points. She received 23 points from the juries finishing 23rd in the jury vote while finishing 12th in the public vote with a total of 41 points.

Poland debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994 alongside a number of other Eastern European countries. Their debut year saw their best result to date, as Edyta Gorniak finished in 2nd place with her song “To nie ja!”. Following this, Poland failed to repeat this initial success, managing a top 10 placing on only one other occasion during their initial 1994-2011 run in the contest. In 2012, following a string of non-qualifications, Poland withdrew from the contest due to financial difficulties. Since their return in 2014, they have been considerably more successful in the contest, having qualified for the final for every year since there return. At Kyiv 2017, Kasia Mos finished 22nd in the final with her song “Flashlight”.
