Poland: “Regional qualifying rounds for 2017”

Polish broadcaster TVP will use a new system to pick their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest next year. The candidates for a national final will be chosen through several regional qualifying rounds, states the portal Wirtualnemedia.pl.

Eliminations will be held once a month, and transmissions of the shows will be broadcasted. According to Wirtualnemedia.pl, the format will be similar to Melodifestivalen in the way that there is a system of quarter finals, semi finals and a grand final.

This year, Poland participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 with the song “Color of Your Life” by Michał Szpak. Poland placed eighth out of the 26 participating countries, scoring 229 points.
