POLAND – A few days before the Polish national final, the two top favourites according to the Polish press that is, are clearly ready for a catfight and we will all tune for sure on February 19th to watch the show.
It is no secret among the Polish press and fans that Daria Marx and Krystian Ochman are considered the top favourites to win the ticket for Turin.
Shortly before the qualifying rounds, Daria was interviewed on how she assessed the proposal of her most powerful rival according to the bookmakers, i.e. Krystian Ochman. In an interview with a reporter, Jastrząb Post bluntly expressed her opinion about the song River.
Daria does not listen to music in the Ochman style on a daily basis. She also does not hide that Kuba Szmajkowski has the most catchy song among all the candidates for Eurovision:
“It’s not my style, but I think each of us brings something different to this competition. Ultimately, the Poles will decide what will be chosen. However, I am a wall with pop songs, so maybe I would even go in the direction of Kuba Szmajkowski, but I listen to pop every day. I think each of us likes to listen to it on the radio or Spotify.”
The elimination favourite is tired of asking about River. She also has a few reservations about Eurovision fans:
“God forbid, I have no objections to Krystian, but I don’t feel like talking about him all the time. I don’t know why he gets so many questions all the time about him. Let’s agree that not only me and Krystian are in the competition. There are more of us. I am impressed by Ania Byrcyn’s voice and if we are talking about ballads, why do we not mention her? Why are we talking about a song that hasn’t been released? Why was there a favourite already then? These would be the questions that I would like to ask all Eurovision fans.”
How did Daria react to the information that a few days ago it was Krystian who was considered by bookmakers as the best candidate for a representative of Poland?
“There are a lot of marketing skills in his team and congratulations. Not everyone needs to know the truth. Not only that – there is always some kind of mystery that brings the audience. Krystian has these tracks already 10-12. If his fans listened to these songs, let them listen. I have nothing against Krystian, really. Even though the media is trying to make me a witch and they keep asking me about it. I would like Krystian to get the same questions, but Krystian gets questions about how he feels in the coronavirus. I would simply like Poles to see some truth in all of this.”
The singer is pleased with the high marks of her song among fans of the competition from abroad, and the rest is in the hands of the Polish audience:
“What’s going to be? We’ll see. All I can say is that Paranoia is 4.8 or 4.9 in Eurovision fans around the world, so it’s a score of 5.0. So this is not exactly how it is promoted. I think each of us has to learn our truth from this.”
