Edyta Górniak has confirmed she’ll be attempting to represent Poland at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden.

The singer previously teased a participation attempt on her Facebook page, but has confirmed that she has now sent a song in for consideration.

Edyta revealed her plans during a radio interview this afternoon. She also revealed that the song she is competing with is called Grateful. 

With the song To nie ja she represented Poland on their debut in the Eurovision Song Contest back in 1994. Her second place remains the country’s highest finish in the contest and only top five placing.

This year, the Polish broadcaster TVP announced that the country will be holding a national final to select their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2016.

The final will be held on 5 March and will feature between five and ten songs.

This is the first time since Poland’s return to the contest in 2014 that they will be using a national final.

Last year, the Polish broadcaster internally selected Monika Kuszyńska to represent the country in Vienna. Her entry, In the name of love, finished 23rd in the final with ten points.
