Kasia Moś has won the Polish national selection with the song „Flashlight” and will represent Poland in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.
Kasia has been selected via the television program Krajowe Eliminacje 2017 , the result of which was chosen by 50% of the public televoting and 50% by the jury of experts: a change of course compared to last year, when the victory of Michał Szpak was selected only by viewers. During the announcement, Kasia could barely believe that she had won. Once the joyful shock had settled, she could finally go up on stage to perform her song once more.
Judging the songs in the race was the task of a panel of experts composed of Alicja Węgorzewska , mezzo-soprano opera singer, Maria Sadowska , singer, music producer, screenwriter, Robert Janowski , singer and composer, as well as television and radio presenter, Włodek Pawlik , composer and jazz pianist and Krzesimir Dębski , composer, jazz violinist and conductor. Kasia Moś , who got the maximum points (50).
In second place was ranked the ballad of Rafał Brzozowski „Sky over Europe” , closely followed by the public favored ( „Faces” of Carmell ) and Isabell Otrębus, who wore on stage the song „Voiceless” written by Fredrik Kempe , the man behind Swedish eurovisivi successes of „Popular” and „Undo” .
Her performance was definitely different from the others competitors of the contest. The stage was dark with a black and white background. This type of mystery songs is not common at Eurovision, but Kasia is a stellar performer and she delivered a great performance with strong vocals. The crowd seemed to really like her and give her a big applause.
Kasia Moś studied music from an early age, and he soon showed interest in Eurovision: dates back to 2006 on the first attempt to represent Poland at the European song festival, when with „I Wanna Know” came only tenth in the natiomal final.
After several musical experiences, including participation in the talent show „Must Be The Music” , she has retried the lot last year, coming in sixth in Krajowe Eliminacje 2016.
Kasia Moś recently released the official video for the song "Flashlight." The singer appeared completely naked. She is responsible for the implementation of, among others, her fiance, Maciek "Hiacenty" Malinowski, as well as longtime friends: Sebastian Ledwoń and Marcin Bania. In an interview with a local media Kasia Moś told how she felt, shaking video completely naked. The singer confessed that she was initially ashamed of nudity: „It always seemed to me that I have a problem with nudity. At the beginning of recordings I stressed, but then somehow I went on feeling ok. I stepped into this role.”
Now Kasia Moś and his ballad „Flashlight”are responsible for maintaining the positive trend that Poland has built in recent years to the European festival as since the comeback of 2014 Poland always qualified in the Grand Final. She will complete in the second half of the first semi-final on May 9th.
