He’s the FiK winning fan favourite, who takes to the Eurovision stage tomorrow night during semi-final one. And while Eugent Bushpepa’s staging may seem like a conventional rock performance, it also tells a story. He explains:

We’re trying to transmit that the first part of the song is a bit melancholic, with the blue light. And the colours of the optimistic part of the song with the red light, showing love etc. And we’re very pleased with the staging and the light.

The “Mall” singer shared more after his second rehearsal.

Good luck Eugent! Albania is always overlooked in ESC but we are all proud of you.

The result should never matter in Albania’s case. You guys purvey the highest quality to this contest, therefore you are always the true song-contest-winners! Scoreboard is a low-level political area in which Albania does not need to succeed. Eugent will make you proud tonight and will be victorious either way!

My country’s public broadcaster has made a limited SF1 televote-test for 15 minutes tonight, and Albania won it. The results were completely different from the betting odds, awarding only 2 points to Bulgaria, 4 to Israel, 7 to Estonia, and 12 to Albania. Meanwhile, Czech Republic was 15th, while Lithuania and Iceland ended last with null points each.

Interesting. Which country?

Because the overall song quality is especially high this year, I suspect the odds are way off this year. As a result, I think we’re going to see lots of surprises. The songs that don’t fit the usual fan fave mold – e.g.; dance/diva/super drama – seem extremely underestimated.

I cannot tell which country it is because there might be a voting bias or even revenge, hence my nickname “Secret Televote XXX”. Thanks for your understanding and good luck to all participants.

@Sangfreud: Actually, the overall song quality is extremely weak this year, so the Albanian rock masterpiece will stand out easily and convert perfectly on live TV.

He MUST get the recognition he deserves! If EBU plays the same game again, there won’t be a point for Albania to send their greatest artists, take a year-off from their careers, then spend millions (participation alone costs 250.000 €), and yet up with nothing! EBU should either play fair or see a massive boycott from many countries! Enough is enough!

Artistically, Albania is the strongest country in the Eurovision but its success rate remains inexplicably low despite of superior quality! This controversial issue requires an investigation from the European Parliament Culture and Education Committee, but the Albanian PBS remains silent about it. My country did that in 2008 and now is constantly on the Top 10.

Damn Eugent is sooo fine!
For me, he is this years Amir, Frank Gabbani, Alex Florea and Andras Kallay-Saunders joining the list as 2018s entry in Hot Guy of Eurovision for me.
Before I even start talking about how good his song is.
