~kingaKwidzyn: Dear Michał, how does it feel when people have shivers at the sound of your voice, like me, and there are tears in their eyes, like in my case?

~Daniel_TG: Is your style your own idea, or do you try to imitate anyone?
Michał Szpak: It’s definitely my own idea. You may think that I am trying to be similar to someone, but as you all know, everything that there was to be invented has already been invented. Nowadays we can only imitate others add our own elements.

~monia111 Do people look at you in a different way now, after the show, not as if you were from a “strange world “?

Illaaa: Hi! You are phenomenal! You are a big question mark for me and I wish you all the best. I am curious what you will show as an artist. Will your image help you with your career? What do you think?
Michał Szpak: Trudno mi powiedzieć, czy pomoże mi w karierze. Mój wizerunek to ja i nie mam zamiaru go zmieniać.

Julka22: Do you think that you could live without music?
Michał Szpak: Definitely not. I have recourse to music every time I experience some problems.

~Piotrek1994: What is it like to meet Kuba Wojewódzki, Maja and Czesław. In other words, what is it like to stand in front of such people? How does it feel?

Michał SzpakMichał Szpak: I do hope that what has happened on the stage will teach people something and that people will understand it all and will stop judging a book by its cover.

~justynapsk: I will change the topic a bit. Do you often chat online? Do you have, in all this confusion, any spare time left for your private things?
Michał Szpak: I do not visit chat rooms at all. And time for myself: of course I do have.

zyndziora: In the program “Uwaga” you said that you wanted to be a star like Madonna. How are you going to achieve this? Do you have any plans yet?

Michał Szpak: : I consider choosing one of the three topics: economics, archeology and psychology.

RudaJanica: Why such topics?
Herbi_Bierun: Not music?
Michał Szpak: : Economics because I’ve just graduated from a school of economics, archeology because I love the past and psychology because I love to learn about human minds. Singing is an inseparable part of my life.

AndziaM: To be honest, people are afraid of talking to others who stand out from the crowd, do you think that as a psychologist you would be able to fight with this opinion?
Michał Szpak: Fighting with something like this would be very difficult and arduous in our country. But maybe after a few years, some people would become convinced that different does not mean worse.

~mart13yna: Why didn’t you take part in “Mam Talent”?

~agitaaa: Do you sing solo or in a band?
Michał Szpak: I sing solo since a year and a half.

Kasat: Are not you afraid that people will start using your fame?

~mmm_: Have you been waiting for this sort of program? Why did you not take part in “Must be the music?

AndziaM: Is it hard to talk to your family abroad, like you and your sister, does she support you as much as the rest of the family?

roll40: Hi, my name is Mateusz and, like you, I love singing, some people think that I am good, hence my question – how to start the dream career of a singer?

mika2203: Are you not scared a bit by the fact that until now nobody has treated you in any special way and now you are suddenly recognized and asked for an autograph?
Michał Szpak: It’s not like that. In my life I have always had such situations. They were less frequent, however, it’s not much different at the moment. The only change is the number of people who ask me for something like that.

XXVIIon: Michał, Kuba Wojewódzki once said in ‘’Idol’’: ‘’ Everyone can sing, but not everyone wants to listen to it’. What do you think?
Michał Szpak: He is right to some extent, every single person has the right to do so, even when he cannot sing, one has the right to go on a stage and present himself.

~wiosenny_deszcz: If you find a good manager, who will recommend you change your image, what are you going to do?
Michał Szpak I will never cooperate with a person who will not accept me 100%. My image is me and I do not want to change.

Herbi_Bierun: If a record label offered you the opportunity to record a CD today, would you resign from ‘’The X-Factor?

~viivi: : During the recordings of the program the participants live in Warsaw, do they return to their hometowns after the recordings?
Michał Szpak: Yes. We go back home, and we prepare for the next level.

~Onaaa: Are you satisfied with the opinion of the jury after your performance?
Michał Szpak: Yes. I think I could not hear better words.

Oskar555: What do you think, are you able to win the program?

~olatwojafanka: Do many people ask you for an autograph?

~zamortyzowana: Have you already composed your own songs?
Michał Szpak: Yes, I have already composed a few songs.

Kasat: Were you surprised when you were asked to take part in the program ‘’Uwaga’’? Have you received more offers to take part in other programs?
Michał Szpak: To be honest, I was surprised by this offer. And as you can see, I also got a proposal to take part in ‘’Dzień Dobry TVN.

~Avenue_Smok_xD: As a person with a colorful and interesting personality, are you sometimes not tired of the unfavorable opinions from other people who do not try to understand you? Do you sometimes want to stand in front of them and shout ” Hey! This is my life, and this is the way I want to be seen!”?
Michał Szpak: This is not about being noticeable. I do not do it on purpose. This is the way I am.
