Poland competed in the first of the semifinals in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008. The Polish National Final Piosenka dla Europy 2008 was held on February 23, 2008. The winning entry was determined by combining the results of a public televote and a jury vote (50/50%). Both the jury and televoters gave top marks to Isis Gee, to represent Poland in Belgrade with her song For Life. Poland qualified to take part in the final of the contest, having received enough televotes in the semi-final.
