Liberta Spahiu, Turjan Hyska and Floriana Garo are the hosts of the three shows, and 2009 Eurovision Song Contest winner Alexander Rybak will be a special guest of the final.

The grand final of Festivali i Këngës 53 will be held tomorrow night at 20:45 CET. It will be streamed live on Eurovision.tv’s stream here. Nine qualifiers from the first semi-final and Nine from tonight’s show will compete tomorrow for the ticket to Vienna, to represent Albania at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest.
