The Wiwi Jury—our international panel of music unprofessionals—sharpened its claws and headed to Tirana this week to review Rona Nishliu’s Eurovision 2012 song “Suus.” That means “Personal” in Albanian. But what does it mean to the jury? Read on to find out.
Y’all remember Albania’s Kejsi Tola? The one who wore a pink tutu, stood on a wind machine and danced with the Gumby look-a-like at Eurovision 2009? Well she’s finally put on some clothes and is back with a very grown up new single called “Me Jeto” (Live Me).
It’s late in Dusseldorf, but Wiwi and Vebooboo are working hard to report how things went down in Semi-Final 1.
Wiwi still doesn’t know if he’s bewitched by Aurela Gaçe, or scared of her. But after watching her second rehearsal he knows this: Aurela can seriously sing!
Wiwi doesn’t know if he’s enchanted or scared by Albania’s Aurela Gaçe. In her video for “Feel the Passion,” she transforms from a woman with a bad dye job to a flying giant to an eagle—all the while howling into the camera. What do you guys think? Is she edgy and unique, or an acid-trip […]
Albania seriously believes in transformation. Last year its Eurovision team changed Juliana Pasha from a dowdy looking lounge singer into a hip-shaking disco diva, and they totally funked-up her song ahead of Oslo. Now it looks like the Albanians are up to their old tricks again.
Aurela Gaçe had already won Albania’s Festivali i Kenges twice — in 1999 and 2001 — and last night she did it again. The New York-based singer originally from Llakatundi, Albania will sing Kënga ime (My song) in Dusseldorf. Check her out in action below!
