Poland 2011: the televoters wanted Magdalena

Poland selected its entry for Düsseldorf in a national final last night, where a rather overwhelming victory went to Magdalena Tul who scored more than 40 % of the televotes in the end.

Magdalena Tul - Jestem (Poland 2011)

I'm not sure this is a potential winner - it is far too early to judge before we even know half the field for the ESC - but it makes me happy that Poland is taking a step back from the advanced ballads of 2008 and 2009 and lands, after a fairytale outing last year, in a modern pop field where they obviosuly feel at home.

Poland is good at modern pop, Magdalena has a good voice as well as stage presence aplenty. If this is kept tasteful (anyone remembers The Jet Set?) it could very well take Poland to the final in May.
