POLAND – Eurovision fans might recognise Rafał Brzozowski as a co-presenter of the 2020 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Warsaw, Poland. His other TV work includes the popular music show The Name of the Tune and his time as co-host of the Polish version of Wheel of Fortune.
RAFAŁ’s music career started with his participation in The Voice (of Poland), releasing his debut single Tak blisko (“So Close”) shortly after. Riding high in the Polish airplay and sales charts, the entertainer found further success with his albums Tak blisko and Mój czas (My Time).
Music aside, Brzozowski’s two biggest passions are sports and aviation. Rafał won a bronze medal for his wrestling in the Academic Championships of Poland and is currently working on upgrading his private pilot licence to an aerobatic licence.
Perhaps Rafał could fly to Rotterdam and offer the nearby Czech, German and Danish participants the opportunity to join him on The Ride?
Rafal revealed how from JESC 2020 host turned up as Eurovision 2021 representative, especially in a moment when Alicja Szemplińska was tipped to again the country’s representative.
“It was a really fast decision… like in half of the month of February, they just call me and tell me that I will be going to the Eurovision Song Contest this year. The TV station [TVP] make a regulation that they need to choose the song this year because in the previous year they can’t do that… They called a few artists, asked do we have songs… I sent my demo song ‘The Ride’… they asked if I could sing that at Eurovision. I said okay, and it happened so fast, it takes about three days to make a decision and it was a shock for me.”
