of course it doesn’t matter . there is no televoting and the jury will vote the composer of the song not the song … this is the biggest issue of festivali i kenges. and the fact that rtsh doesn’t seem to like modernization but has stuck in the 70s/80s… i highly doubt they would change things this year. i only hope elhaida has a good song at least .

Interestingly, running order might not matter that much for FiK… remember, Hersi won from 1st in the running order last year.
