Likely Televote Appeal
Likely Jury Appeal
If they can tighten up the live performance in May, they could just about make left-hand-side of the scoreboard.
Following last year’s disappointing showing, Poland’s Krajowe Eliminacje 2018 selection show chose to send Gromee feat. Lukas Meijer to Lisbon with the song Light Me Up.
Gromee feat. Lukas Meijer will perform in the second half of semi-final 1.
Light Me Up is a great little dance floor bop with an enjoyable feel-good vibe. It actually makes you overlook Lukas’ dodgy vocals, though the Eurovision juries will be less forgiving.
JOWST have been mentioned in the comments, but whereas they did well with the juries and performed poorly on the televote, I think the reverse will be true with Light Me Up. This is a song that should galvanise the Polish diaspora much more than Kasia Moś did – that dirge finished 12th on televote, so top-10 on the televote is within reach this year. If they can tighten up the live performance in May, they could just about make left-hand-side of the scoreboard.
Can Poland hope for a better result this year?
