Poland's Got TalentEdit
In 2009 Popowska auditioned for the second series of Polish version of the "Got Talent show format, called "Mam talent!". In front of the judges she sang "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen. Despite receiving positive judges' comments and public reaction, she failed to get through to the live semi-finals. This caused many viewers to protest, who wanted Kasia to return to the competition.
In late 2009 Popowska announced in one of her YouTube videos that she had signed a record deal with a label and was going to start working on her debut album. This album was released in September 2014.
