Grzeszczak: after leaving the stage, I just seethe with me
TVN24 reporter Adrian Mielnik talked to Sylwia Grzeszczak after the performance and asked what emotions accompanied her during the evening.
– Listen, after leaving the stage, I just seethe with me. There’s a lot of emotion, really, the audience is amazing. When I got on stage, everyone stood up. This is the greatest reward ever, she said. “It’s my 15th anniversary, so it’s such a special moment,” she said.
