Elhaida Dani, Albania’s Eurovision 2015 singer, has announced that the sun is setting on her song “Diell”. Late on February 23 she announced on Facebook that she will NOT perform the song in Vienna.
Writing in both Albanian and Italian, the Italian X Factor winner said that she and the author have made the decision for personal reasons. She hopes that this sudden change won’t lead to controversy.
Eurofans have never questioned her voice. However, they have frequently suggested that the song lets her down. In our most recent poll asking “Who is your favourite Eurovision 2015 act so far?”, she only secured 6% of the vote. A quick look at our comments section shows how divided our readers have been.
What do you think? Could Elhaida have revamped “Diell” in time for Eurovision? Or was it beyond repair? Comment below!
