As reported by Dziennik Eurowizyjny, TVP will be holding a press conference for its Junior Eurovision 2023 representative Maja Krzyżewska, three days before the delegation is set to leave for the competition in Nice.
The press conference will be hosted by Mateusz Szymkowiak, who was the Opening Ceremony host for Junior Eurovision 2019 and 2020. Mateusz will also be in Nice providing coverage for the viewers in Poland.
Who is Maja Krzyżewska?
Maja Krzyżewska–or “Maja from the end of the world”, as she calls herself–first appeared in the public eye through her participation on Poland’s edition of The Voice Kids. While there, she was coached by Cleo, former Polish Eurovision representative in 2014. Aside from singing, Maja enjoys performing aerial silks.
Her nickname “Maja from the end of the world” refers to her tiny village of Szeszupka, Poland, a town with fewer permanent residents than there are Junior Eurovision participants.
In 2023, Maja Krzyżewska won the opportunity to represent Poland at Junior Eurovision through the national final Szansa na Sukces. The song “I Just Need a Friend” had already been selected for Poland, and Krzyżewska won in the superfinal against Leon Olek, with her version coming out on top.
