"Time To Party" was the Polish representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007, performed in English by The Jet Set.

The song is an up-tempo number, with hip-hop and RnB influences. The lead vocal is delivered by female vocalist Alexandra Strunin, who tells her listeners that she likes to party and invites them to join her at a party. Her vocals are punctuated by British-born rapper David Junior Serame, who reminds the listener that "You got the right to party".

The performance began with Strunin in a go-go cage and featured dancers performing burlesque moves. At the end of the song, flares were released on stage.

As Poland had not qualified for the final at the previous Contest, the song was performed in the semi-final. Here, it was performed fourteenth (following Croatia's Dragonfly featuring Dado Topić with "Vjerujem u ljubav" and preceding Serbia's Marija Šerifović with "Molitva"). At the close of voting, it had received 76 points, placing 14th in a field of 28 and thus missing out on qualifying for the final. The result meant that Poland would need to qualify through the semi-final at the next Contest.

BBC commentary before and after the song focused on the number of times the word "party" was used in the lyrics, with a number in the mid-1940s being quoted.
