Michał Szpak - "Color of Your Life"

Poland has participated 19 times since 1994 where we saw Poland in Eurovision Song Contest for the first time. The debuting year 1994 was also the most succesfull. Here they finished second, and is the best result for Poland so far. They have only finished in Top-10 in three out of the 19 participations. The worst result is 2011, where they came last in their Semi-final.

Since the introductions of Semi-finals in 2004, Poland has qualified for the Grand Final five out of eleven times.
