Poland in Eurovision
Poland debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994 with flying colours achieving an honorable placing with Edyta Gorniak‘s To nie ja, the country’s best result till date.
The country has faced mixed fortunes in the competition achieving only three top 10 placing in the event since its debut. Poland withdrew from the competition in 2012 due to poor results and financial issues and was absent from the competition for three consecutive years until their return in 2014.
Poland has partaken at Europe’s favorite television show 23 times. In 2021 Rafal represented Poland at the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam with his entry ‘The Ride’.
