TVP of Poland has confirmed that it will be participating in the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The Polish national broadcaster has confirmed that it will be competing in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in the Netherlands. TVP has not yet confirmed how it will be selecting its act for the 2020 contest, having internally selected both singer and song for the 2019 contest in Israel.
The Eurovision Song Contest will be brought back to the Netherlands for the 2020 edition after Duncan Laurence’s victory at the 2019 contest with his song “Arcade”. To date, 37 countries have confirmed preliminary participation. These countries are:
- Czech Republic
- North Macedonia
- San Marino
- United Kingdom
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.
