Festivali i Këngës 54: Reviews and rankings by the Wiwi Jury

None of the members of The Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music un-professionals — have Albanian passports. But we do, of course, have plenty of opinions. So we are reviewing all thirty acts that have made it to the semi-finals of Festivali i Këngës 54 — Albania’s national selection for Eurovision 2016. In the build-up to the final on the 27 December 2015, the jurors will be giving their critiques of each song and awarding it a score out of 10. The scores will then be averaged for the Wiwi Jury Verdict.

You can click the name of each song to read our complete review. You can also click the name of the artist for an interview where available.

Want to express your opinion and support your favourite? Be sure to comment on each individual post. The Eurovision hopefuls are reading us and you as well, so your opinion counts. And don’t forget to vote in our Festivali i Këngës 54 poll.
