Artur Orzech will commentate on the Eurovision Song Contest for Poland this year.
It has been confirmed that Artur Orzech will once again guide Polish viewers through the Eurovision Song Contest this year. Artur has been providing commentary at the contest every year that Poland has participated since 1994, excluding 1996 and 1997, as well as Junior Eurovision commentary since their return to the contest in 2016.
Representing Poland this year is the girl group Tulia. They were internally selected by TVP after an open call for singers and songs was made by the broadcaster. They will be performing “Fire of Love” (Pali Się) on stage this May in Tel Aviv.
Who are Tulia?
The group, made up of Patrycja Nowicka, Dominika Siepka, Joanna Sinkiewicz and Tulia Biczak, are known for combining traditional Eastern European style singing with modern music.
The group formed in 2018, in which year they performed on FRYDERYKI 2018 gala, as well as winning three awards at the Polish Song Festival and receives a platinum award for their debut album.

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 up to 2017.
