Today TVP will reveal that act that will represent Poland the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The Polish national broadcaster will reveal the nations entrant for the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 today. The announcement had been due to take place exactly one week ago, but was delayed after a larger than expected number of submissions were received.
The singer and song that will represent Poland in Israel has been internally selected by a committee at the Polish broadcaster. A committee has been reviewing all of the applications now and has had 10 days to make a decision.
TVP previously held internal selections for the nations entrant in the Eurovision Song Contest from 1994-99, 2001, 2005 and most recent in 2014 and 2015 . The internal selections in 2014 and 2015 brought Poland 14th and 23rd place finishes respectively. These results came after Poland had only qualified for the final once between 2004 and 2011.
Poland’s entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 was “Light Me Up” by Gromee featuring Lukas Meijer. The song had been expected to qualify for the final but finished 14th in the second semi-final with 81 points. The song would have qualified on a televote but was 15th with the juries.
