    Well, Margaret is signed to Warner Music Sweden, "Cool Me Down" was somehow a hit in Sweden, and Margaret performed on Lotta p Liseberg and Sommarkrysset (both on TV4) this summer. And she was Snapchating on English when she arrived to one of Stockholm's airports, so there were rumours she's taking part on MF2017.

    And Bjrkman said on the press conference to OGAE Poland that she won't be against her participation on MF, but her label didn't suggest her.

    I have a feeling she sent a song to compete there, but they didn't pick it..

    It's just speculation. Margaret was hot rumoured before the announcement of Melodifestivalen artists. Rumour has it she was in Stockholm at the time and she apparently made some hints on twitter. Bjrkman was looking for that big artist to seal the show and had a seat and artist reserved in case it didn't work according to plan. Loreen was hesitant to the "last minute" but finally decided to participate. Loreen must have worked on the song quite a bit by that time though. The same must be true for the artist standing by whoever that was.

    To me it actually makes sense. Margaret had a decent hit with "Cool me down" in Sweden and if she'd have a good song in Melodifestivalen, she could break as an artist in Sweden. If I were her I would chose this anytime over trying again in the Polish NF after the failure with "Cool me down". Trying again isn't honestly a great thing to do. Simple as that.

    In the interviews after the Melodifestivalen announcements, Bjrkman denied the story and claimed: "We haven't been approached by Margaret or her management about participating in Melodifestivalen, but if that should be the case in future, we are very interested".

    edit:
    I just saw @PamSwynford saying pretty much the same thing. I think my source is Tobbe Ek if remember right, but it really doesn't matter since Christer Bjrkman denied everything

    I still don't get how it ended up so well, for once I kinda agreed with the juries anti Poland bias...
    Juries being possibly biased against Poland (although with such a dated ballad I'm not surprised it was so low with the juries) is kind of needed because of the positive bias in televoting due to Poland's (and Lithuania's) huge diaspora. I wonder if there will be rule alterations for next year to address that.

    But why diaspora earlier didn't vote for Poland, their diaspora was created in 2016?? GOSH!

    In Slovenia and Croatia Poles don't live as diaspora at all, and these countries (just one example of many examples) voted Poland in 2016..it says smth..
    just get over the fact ppl loved Polish entry in 2016 and voted it..
    we will see n 2017, if Poland will have bad result, were will gone all that diaspora!

    The worst is when "2016 was diaspora!" comes from people who somehow think it came from thin air and that this spontaneous diaspora had nothing to do with 2014. I may not have liked 2014 but have no right to question the legitimacy of its televote success.

    And the end of the song when he screams from the bottom of his soul and heart, it gives me shivers and kills me completely..

    Re: POLAND 2017

    I dislike the song but this is true. There is no way it came THIRD in the televoting from diaspora alone. Otherwise Poland would have done a lot better than the very bad results they had when it was 100% televoting.
