The list of entries included 46 original songs, which could not have been released before 2021 and came from the Eurovision and Eurovision Junior preselections.
Most of them were songs that were well known by radio stations. The song was submitted and chosen by fans. The song that scored the most points was Fake Love, performed by Doda. It is this composition, along with its music video, that will fight on the forum of international Eurovision fans for a second Polish victory. The song premiered at the end of last year and last month the single won gold album status.
