Poland has chosen singer RAFAŁ through an internal selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. The Polish song is called ‘The Ride’ and will take part in the second semi final.

In 2020 the young Alicja Szempliska and her song ‘Empires’ won a small preselection show with just three candidates. Broadcaster TVP decided not to pick her again in 2021.

Eurovision fans might recognise Rafał Brzozowski as a co-presenter of the 2020 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Warsaw, Poland. His other TV work includes the popular music show The Name of the Tune and his time as co-host of the Polish version of Wheel of Fortune.

Rafał will sing “The Ride” for Poland at Eurovision 2021:

Swedish Grammi-nominated songwriters Joakim Övrenius, Thomas Karlsson, Clara Rubensson and Johan Mauritzson wrote “The Ride” together.

Mikołaj Dobrowolski provided art direction and will also work with RAFAŁ on his Rotterdam stage performance. Agustin Egurrola is the choreographer.
