Sara James is 14 years old and comes from a musical family in Ośno Lubuskie in western Poland. She started learning to play the piano at six years old and has been singing at the Słubice Municipal Cultural Center for the last four years. The singer won the most recent edition of The Voice Kids Poland.

Sara was chosen to represent Poland at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2021 after her victory at Szansa na Sukces: Eurowizja Junior 2021.

Feel is a Polish band which was formed in Katowice (Upper Silesia) in 2005. Originally called ‘Q2’, the band later adopted ‘Kupicha Band’ as its name and then finally ‘Feel’.

The group released its debut album ‘Feel’ on November 26, 2007. Up to now their biggest success is winning the Bursztynowy Słowik (main award) as well as the People’s Choice award at the 2007 Sopot International Song Festival with pop stars like Emmanuel Moire, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Monrose, The Cloud Room, Thierry Amiel and September also in contention. The group enjoys great popularity in Poland, with both singles released so far achieving tremendous success, to the bewilderment of many independent music critics.

Their biggest hit, well known throughout the country, is called A gdy jest już ciemno (IPA: [a ɡdɨ jest juʂ t͡ɕemnɔ]) “And When the Dusk Comes”. Other popular songs include No Pokaż Na Co Cię Stać (“Show Me What You Can Do”), Jak Anioła Głos (“Like an Angel’s Voice”), Pokonaj Siebie (“Defeat Yourself”), W Odpowiedzi na Twój List (“In Reply To Your Letter”) and Pokaż Mi Niebo (“Show Me The Sky”).

Polish singer/songwriter Sylwia Grzeszczak writes introspective pop songs that ripple with genuine emotion. Her heart is very much present in her voice, which is soft and alluring, but can also hit impressive high notes. Love ballads like “Żyj Na Medal” and “All for You” build from gentle intros to vibrant anthems featuring dramatic, heartfelt crescendos and powerful vocal acrobatics. Grzeszczak’s lyrics are just as stirring, alluding to her vibrant personality while also revealing hints of a mischievous attitude and deep, soul-searching creativity.
