Between 5 and 10 songs will be performed in the show. The songs will be selected by a panel of experts and music journalists.
The Head of TVP, Jan Pawlicki, made this tweet earlier today:
»Let the viewers decide who will represent Poland in Eurovision. 5 March TVP1 will hold a qualifying concert«
Poland hasn't had a selection process since 2011 where they sent Magdalena Tul to Düsseldorf.
Earlier reports suggested that Poland was at risk of being kicked out of EBU and Eurovision because of new media laws in Poland moves to exert greater control over public medias.
Since the introductions of Semi-finals in 2004, Poland has qualified for the Grand Final four out of ten times.
