First Polish press conference

As the last country on the initial schedule, Polish participant Ivan & Delfin had their rehearsal and press conference, only to be followed by Denmark.

The band was started in 2002 and released two singles, one of them became very popular in Poland. They feel that they had a difficult start, because several TV and radio channels refused to play their music.

Their music has mostly slavic influences.

Lead singer of the band, Ivan, has his roots in Russia but has been living in Poland for 13 years now. When asked, they said that the bilinguality of their song is not a new start for Poland at Eurovision. Rather than that, they think that the show should be full of surprises and hope that they will surprise the audience by singing a Russian/Polish song in Gypsy style.

The press conference wasn't attended by a large amount of journalists. As a result, their translator didn't get much questions and answers for her to translate and the group was able to perform several (parts of) songs, including Eyes darker than the night, Black eyes, their entry Czarna dziewczyna and Stevie Wonder's Isn't she lovely.

Poland are next due to rehearse on Sunday 15th May at 18.50 local time.
