Before Eurovision 2020, the Polish broadcaster TVP held a national selection – “Szansa Na Sukces 2020: At the end of the selection, it was “The Voice of Poland” winner Alicja Szemplińska that won the national final.
Alicja should have performed the song “Empires” at Eurovision 2020. However, Eurovision 2020 was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
At the beginning of October 2020, the Polish broadcaster TVP confirmed participation at Eurovision 2021.
