Węgiel’s victory is Poland’s first in the competition. “I’d like to thank Poland, Europe, my dancers, my family and God,” the singer said during her victory speech in Minsk, Belarus and expressed her disbelief. The thirteen-year-old added that the dreams that are important are those which help us achieve greatness.

The final vote-count was very entertaining. Węgiel’s victory was decided by the audience vote. Even the Belarussian commentators could not contain their emotions.
