While they were waiting, based on her experience in 2009 for a professional appearance, they consider that their song was lost, because she interpreted it so freely that it altered the music and the lyrics. They clarify that they had no say in the choice of this particular artist.
Why Does It Hurt? did not qualify for the 3 of the superfinal, causing the rage of the two women.

Tonight was a sad moment for us as songwriters in the final of Eurovision Poland and the quality of Lidia Kopanias live performance. We had hopes for something professional from a former ESC winner and unfortunately what she sang was not the melody and lyrics that we wrote at all. We just want to make a point that we as songwriters have not been involved in the artist’s decision to do this on purpose and don’t want to be associated with it. A good song goes to waste.
With Krystian Ochman as the undisputed favourite already from the predictions, we do not know what luck their song could have, whoever sang it…
It should also be noted that their songs have reached 3rd place at most in national finals.
