After the confirmation that they will be participating in the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest, TVP is wasting no time, as the search for its Eurovision 2022 representative begins. The Polish broadcaster invites soloists and groups (of up to six people) to submit entries in contention to be Poland’s representative in Italy.
Submissions are open until November 20
With the opening of submissions, TVP has also released the rules for their selection (in Polish). Alongside the Eurovision rules, TVP has revealed that a competition committee consisting of five people will be involved in the selection and that a two-stage vote will take place, in order to select Poland’s entry.
The rules and regulations also state that the winner, who will eventually represent Poland at the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest, is set to be revealed by January 2, 2022.
Poland’s Eurovision Journey
In 1994, Poland made their debut at the Eurovision Song Contest, when Edyta Górniak represented them with the song “To nie ja!”, and placed 2nd (which is Poland’s best result at the contest to date). Since then, Poland has participated 23 times (14 of which was in the Grand Final). Poland’s recent Eurovision participation, saw them being represented by RAFAŁ, who competed with “The Ride”, where he managed to place 14th with 35 points from the Jury and Televoters.
