Martin Fitch will be presenting our preview show on 22 April. Martin represented his home country of Poland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 in Oslo. Performing then as Marcin Mroziński, his song “Legenda” was a runaway winner of the ten songs in the Polish national final in February 2010 with over 33% of the public vote.
Sadly that success wasn’t repeated at Eurovision in May 2010 when Martin came 13th in the first semi-final, missing out on a place in the grand final. Martin is now based in London, as well as still spending time in Poland. He is currently working as an actor, tv presenter and singer.
Karl William Lund will also be performing at our preview show. Karl took part in this year’s “Eurovision: You Decide”, the UK’s national final to choose a song for Eurovision with his self-penned song “Miracle”.
Karl came through the open selection and his song was chosen by OGAE UK fans out of hundreds that were submitted. In the final he was up against five other songs put forward by BASCA (British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors) and from record companies. Sadly, despite giving a great performance to his fantastic song, it wasn’t enough for Karl to win the ticket to Stockholm. But through his involvement in this year’s final he has already built a solid fan base amongst UK Eurovision fans, and we hope he will be back again next year.
