Poland in JESC

Poland debuted at the contest in 2003, at the very first event with Katarzyna Żurawik and the song “Coś mnie nosi”. The entry finished last with 3 points. The country competed again in 2004, but with the same result. After these two events, Poland withdrew from the contest. After a twelve-year of absence, it returned in 2016. In 2018, the country won for the first time in the Junior contest with Roksana Węgiel and the song “Anyone I Want To Be”.

Poland selected its representative through a national final named “Szansa na sukces”. Viki Gabor won the event and therefore represented the host nation. Her song “Superhero” is composed by Małgorzata Uściłowska, Patryk Kumór and Dominic Buczkowski-Wojtaszek and has already entered the Polish charts.

With this win, Poland became the first country to win two times in a row in the Junior version of the contest. It is also the first time for Poland to do so in any Eurovision event.

Best – Worst Results

Kazakhstan achieved its best result yet, finishing second. On the other hand, Russia finished for the first time outside the Top-10, placing thirteen. Georgia, finished 14th, making it also its worst result. Wales did better form its debut entry last year. It finished 18th in a field of 19 countries.
