Poland in The Origin Song Contest
◄ 03 TOSC logo 05 ►
Poland took part in the fourth edition of The Origin Song Contest, which was hosted in Germany. The country was represented by Honorata Skarbek with the song "Na koniec świata" ("At the end of the world"), composed by Skarbek along with Małgorzata Uściłowska and Piotr Siejka. The entry was selected through the national selection Piosenka dla Niemiec, organised by TVP, the Polish broadcaster.

Before TOSCEdit

TVP, the Polish broadcaster, announced on 12th December 2017 that the country would be present at the fourth edition of The Origin Song Contest. Despite getting their worst result to date in the third edition with the song "Long Way" by Bovska, the result was still acceptable and there was no reason to withdraw. The Piosenka dla national final was confirmed to be used again, with Piosenka dla Niemiec being held.

Piosenka dla NiemiecEdit

Main article: Piosenka dla Niemiec

Piosenka dla Niemiec was the third edition of the Polish music competition Piosenka dla which was held to select the country's entry for The Origin Song Contest 04.

The final took place on 20th December 2017 and the superfinal on the 30th. Both events were held at the TVP Studio in Warsaw.

The Polish delegation and entrant Honorata participated in the Brussels Origin Party, held in Belgium on the 5th January. Skarbek performed her entry "Na koniec świata" at the show, hosted in Brussels' Cirque Royal by British presenter Lisa Brash and Belgian musician Delv!s.

On 14th January 2018, the semi-final allocation draw for the edition took place in Cologne, where the countries were allocated into halves of the two semi-finals. Poland was allocated into the first half of the first semi-final. On 25th January, the running order for the semi-finals was revealed, having been determined by the OBU since the second edition. To avoid bias, the position of Poland is always drawn randomly, and this edition Poland was drawn into the starting position of 06 in the second semi-final, following Cyprus and preceding the United Kingdom.

Poland was ranked first of the thirty-five participants in the betting odds for the edition with odds of 2.44, meaning it was the country most likely to win the contest outright. To date, this was the fifth-highest betting odd and it placed Poland fairly high above runner-up Moldova.

Poland qualified from the second semi-final, and was drawn to perform in eleventh position in the final, preceded by Bosnia and Herzegovina and followed by Monaco. The country finished as runner-up of the edition with 112 points, winning the positive points with 138 points but coming eighteenth in the negative votes with -26 points. After the edition, it was revealed that Poland won the semi-final with 107 points (beating Finland by tiebreak procedure).
