Polish Television has closed the submission period before National Final scheduled for 5th March in Warsaw. According to JastrzabPost and based on sources close to TVP, almost 70 songs have been submitted. The number of applications is rather low but we have to take into consideration that Polish (and international) artists had only one and a half week to prepare their Eurovision entries.
JastrzabPost’s source confirmed Margaret submitted her “energetic” song in last minutes today. Popular pop-singer was not sure if she should apply but decided to deliever her entry to TVP. She is well-known in local music industry thanks her hits such as “Thank you very much”, “Wasted”, “Start a Fire” or “Heartbeat”. Worth to mention her first hit-single has been composed by Swedish producers and it’s also rumored Arash (ESC 2009) co-wrote her song for Polish National Final this year.
Michal Szpak (runner-up of “X-Factor”) confirmed he submitted “Color of your life”. Kasia Nova will fight for Stockholm with “Love is Music” submitted by American Label from Los Angeles.

Among other candidates we should mention Monika Urlik (participant of “The Voice”), Hubert Centkowski, Belarussian band Aura or Twinseed.
