Merry FiKmas, everyone! Albania’s Festivali i Këngës 55, the first national final of the season, is upon us, with the grand final happening this evening. But before the 14 acts sing for the chance to represent Albania in Kyiv, we want to know what you think.
Earlier this week, eight songs qualified from the first semi-final and six from the second semi. They’ll be battling it out tonight for a chance to follow in the glamorous footsteps of Eneda Tarifa and Elhaida Dani and represent Albania at Eurovision.
Of course, being Albania, it’s likely that the winning song will undergo a revamp, good or bad. Most likely it will be translated into English, shortened to under three minutes (if necessary) and possibly even given a substantially different sound. Or the song could be replaced entirely!
But based on the performances we’ve seen in the semi-finals, who do you think should win Festivali i Këngës 55? Listen to the songs and then vote in our poll. Remember – you can vote for as many acts as you like, but you can only vote once, so make it count! Be sure to tick the box next to each act before hitting the submit button.
