We decided to continue our new series of articles “Country Of The Month” with Poland. In a period of four weeks, we are going to remind you of the best Polish entries. Note: we selected the entries not by their place in their final, but by their impact on the fans.
Blue Café – Love Song
In 2004, Poland selected Blue Café and their song “Love Song”. The song is a combination of English and Spanish.
It was composed by Paweł Rurak-Sokal and the lyrics were by Paweł Rurak-Sokal. The song placed 17th in a field of 24, with 27 points.
Blue Café is a band that was formed in Łódź, Poland in 1998. Their music styles are soul, jazz and latin. The group all these years, has released a couple of albums, all of which have entered the TOP-10 in the Polish charts.
In 2003, the group tried to represent Poland in the contest, but their song finished third in the national final. A year later, they entered once again the national final and this time won it. Their song was titled “Love Song”.
Poland in the Eurovision 🇵🇱
Poland debuted at the contest in 1994. Since then, it has participated 22 times, missing the final 14 times. Since its first participation, Poland didn’t participate four times, in 2000, 2002, 2012 and 2013. Both in 2000 and 2002, the absence was due to the rules that applied those years. In 2012, the public broadcaster had to cover the European Football Championship and therefore withdrew not only for that year, but the following too.
The country has finished 3 times in the Top-10. Its best result, the 2nd place, was achieved at its debut in 1994. In 2016 the country scored 229 points (under the new voting system), making it the most points Poland got in any Eurovision Contest it has participated. In contrast, its worst result came in 2011, when not only it was eliminated at the semis, but also finished last – 19th – with just 18 points.
