After an absence of one year for scheduling reasons, Poland has confirmed that they will take part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013! After adding Poland to the list of confirmed countries, it brings the total to thirty-six! Welcome back Poland!
TVP confirmed to escsweden.com that Poland will return to the Contest after a years break. They didn’t take part in Azerbaijan because TVP gave priority to the European Football Championships when they hosted it with the Ukraine, and also gave priority to the Olympics in London. But next year, Poland confirmed that they will send a representative to sing in Malmö.
Surprisingly, Poland was forced to withdraw in 2000 when they finished in the bottom five places in Jerusalem the year before. They were also forced to withdraw in 2002 due to same reason as in 2000. Poland’s best scoring entrant was their débutant in Dublin in 1994. They scored a second place. Since the introduction of the semi-finals, Poland has only managed to reach the final twice; 2004 and 2008. They have yet to win the Contest.
Who will take the contest to Warsaw? Give me your opinion! 🙂
