On Thursday, Polish representative Blanka will perform her song “Solo” at the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest. As Ukraine's representatives won the previous edition of the contest, the country should traditionally be hosting the event, but due to the Russian invasion, the BBC will host Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool, the U.K.
Blanka, Poland’s representative, will perform “Solo” in the second semi-final of the 67th Eurovision Song Contest. She has decided to make changes not only to her choreography but also to her stage image, which many Eurovision fans believe increased her chances of reaching the grand final. Blanka, just like during the Polish preselection, will perform ninth in the running order.
Just last week, inhabitants of Liverpool had the chance to watch her public performance live on the city's street.
Blanka was born in Szczecin, however, she is half-Polish and half-Bulgarian. She has lived in Poland for the majority of her life and feels a stronger connection with Poland. Her father permanently resides in Bulgaria. Blanka’s mother on the other hand, had previously worked as a model, so naturally, Blanka attempted to follow in her footsteps however ultimately chose music.
