Rafał Brzozowski has spoken about what people can expect from his performance at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam.
Speaking to Plotka, Rafał has given his first comments on what his staging at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will look like. The singer confirmed that the 80s vibe from the music video of “The Ride” will remain for the contest in May with some changes, he commented:
The idea of producing in the 80s convention, such a stylization as in the past in computer games, and I entered this kind of artistic idea (…) Glasses will be part of the styling, but not all the time. This performance is a bit different. He only refers to the music video, but there is more room for emotions in it.
The Polish performance is being directed by Mikolaj Dobrowolski and choreographed by Agustin Egurrola. Rafał explained that the song has a large amount of choreography in it that is “dynamic and precise”.

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.
