Poland | Szansa na Sukces will be used to select Polish entry for 2020
The Polish national broadcaster TVP have announced that they will select their Eurovision entry through the television competition, Szansa na Sukces. This will be the fourth time since their return in 2014 where they will be choosing their entry via a national selection.
Szansa na Sukces was the method used to choose their latest Junior Eurovision singer to represent the nation on home soil. This method was very successful as the show's winner, Viki Gabor, went on to provide Poland their 2nd win in a row back in November.
The show will air every Sunday from the 3rd to the 23rd of February. In each of the semi finals, six or seven acts will cover a song of the guest artist of that week. One artist will be chosen from each show by an in-show jury panel to advance to the final. A "wildcard" act will also be chosen by a jury. In the final, the finalists will sing two songs: a cover and an original song, with the latter being their intended Eurovision entry. The winner will be chosen by a combination of votes from a jury and the public.
Last year, Poland were represented by the group Tulia in Tel Aviv. They failed to qualify and came in 11th place, missing out by two points. You can watch their performance below.
We also interviewed Tulia in Tel Aviv last year, which you can also see below.
