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.
