Visuals involve lanterns while Rafal stands in the centre of the stage. His performance is a welcome end to tonight’s competing entries. Song is mellow and sweet.

9. Carmel – Faces

Carmel wears flowers in her hair as she wears a black dress. Her strong vocals can definitely deliver however the track doesn’t progress enough to make it a solid entry.

8. Kasia Mos – Flashlight

Fan-favourite of tonight’s show. Kasia wears a linen, bronze dress. She’s on-stage with a keyboardist. Songs stands out and delivers. Definitely has a good shot of taking the crown tonight.

7. Aneta Sablik – Ulalala

Aneta is dressed in a beige, floral dress. Flashing lights are utilised on-stage. The song adds an upbeat vibe needed and it’s placing could help it within the voting, however jury may diminish it’s odds of victory.

6. Olaf Bressa – You look good

Olaf is wearing a white t-shirt with a green jacket while supported by four female backing dancers. Track doesn’t develop much however is a welcome change.

5. Paulla – I want there to be with you

Paulla wears a full white, formal dress while the camera focuses on herself. She’s on-stage with a male guitarist and the rock-vibes help propel it to a new level, considering it’s catchy hook. Good contender for tonight.

[20:50] Swedish ESC composer Fredrik Kempe is now on stage with the host before the next performance.

4. Agata Nizińska – Reason

Agata performs with four female backing dancers. She wears a black leather necklace. Vocals again dont deliver entirely however offers a different vibe that we’ve currently experience.

3. Isabell otrębus – Voiceless

Isabell wears a white dress with her hair straightened. Performance denotes focus onto the singer and vocal quality and it works. Great song and hopefully the standard of songs continue.

2. Lanberry – Only Human

Lanberry wears her hair down in plaits while on-stage with two backing singers and three backing dancers. Vocals had issues however overall deliverance was good, however not as good as the previous entries.

1. Martin Fitch – Fight For Us
