TVP is set to reveal details of the Polish selection process for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest on Friday.
TVP, the Polish national broadcaster, has confirmed to Dziennik Eurowizyjny that they will be revealing information about the Polish Junior Eurovision selection at the end of this week. The broadcaster is set to reveal information about how they will select their participant for Minsk, Belarus on Friday.
It is expected that TVP will reveal that their singer and song will be selected internally due to the time constraints of organising a national selection.
When TVP confirmed that they would be participating in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018 last year, they stated that a televised selection process would be held. At the time TVP documents showed that the selection was scheduled to be held in October.
