Poland has decided tonight! The band Ich Troje will represent Poland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2003 with the song Żadnych granic, also known as Keine Grenzen. That was the outcoming of the Polish national final Eurowizja 2003.
The song Żadnych granic, which means No borders and is also known under the German title Keine Grenzen, can be heard here. Ich Troje will also participate in the German national Eurovision final Countdown Grand Prix under the name Troje with the song Liebe macht Spaß. It's unknown what will happen if the band wins the German final too.
Here I am by Wilki was the runner up, while Blue Café's You may be in Love ended third, to the disappointment of many Eurovision fans.

A fan who watched the show explained Blue Café's defeat this way: “To be honest, I was hoping Blue Café would win, but their live performance was much worse than the studio version of the song – don't get me wrong, it was still very good… I voted for them. But Ich Troje just basically blew up on the stage. Without any fireworks…. I don't like the band, I don't like this guy or his voice (grr!), but the performance they gave just couldn't go unnoticed. It's like it gave them 500% more chances of winning over Wilki and Blue Café. The song, its lyrics, the spectacle they did with simple things like outfits and gestures and general presence made all the difference. I was glued up to the screen, hypnotized by the whole thing.”
