Poland’s Eurovision 2017 Entry

Kasia Moś will represent Poland with the song “Flashlight” at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

Moś first vied for a Eurovision slot in 2006 with her song “I Wanna Know.” Last year, her song “Addiction” finished sixth in Poland’s national final. She has been a performer in the Pussycat Dolls Burlesque Revue and also finished third place in the 2012 edition of the talent show Must Be the Music. Moś co-wrote “Flashlight” with Pete Barringer and Rickard Bonde Truumeel.

This one bored us. There is nothing here we haven’t heard before and we’re not getting any new twists on old themes. Also, while in the past we have been willing to give some countries a pass for bad lyrics, in this instance we just can’t. Are you all really rhyming “fire” with “desire”? Still? Also, like Switzerland’s “Apollo,” “Flashlight” starts off with a bad bullet analogy. “Like a bullet from a smoking gun/They try to tell us that we don’t belong.” If we thought about it, we might come up with some pithy witticism about that, but honestly, we don’t want to spend any more time considering this plodding dirge of song.
