Albania, Elhaida Dani, 1

On Sunday Elhaida Dani — Albania’s Eurovision 2015 singer — dropped some major Alicia Keys pitch perfect piano realness. Appearing on Top Channel’s “E Diell” show, she ended her interview with a live, acoustic performance of “I’m Alive”. She had the audience spellbound and set the hearts of Albanian Eurofans racing. What a talent!

During the interview Elhaida did not reveal how she plans to stage her performance in Vienna. She wants to keep the performance a surprise and we can’t blame her. She kept her official video and Eurovision song under wraps, and that freedom — away from the glaring spotlight of criticism and opinion — helped her create a masterpiece.

This year’s slogan for Eurovision 2015 is #BuildingBridges, so naturally Elhaida has been thrilled to see the warm response from a number of people in Serbia. Even if the countries have their political differences, they have found common joy in her song. For that she is very grateful.

It’s “only” in 8th place in my top, but I wouldn’t mind Albania winning. What a voice!
Switzerland will probably give her 10 or 12 points I think.

You can call it the legacy of Conchita: so many amazing vocalists this year!

However I do think she picked the wrong song to showcase her voice. In the regular version it’s much faster and there is no time for vocal acrobatics like that until the end.

Only a snippet, but how good was that. It’s a great song, the staging could turn it into something really special, let’s hope they get it right. One to watch for me.

Wow. Just wow, that’s all I can really put into words for this snippet. Stripping back the performance and showing off vocally would be a pretty smart choice if she can do it for the semifinal considering she’s plopped in between Denmark (middle-of-the-road schlager) and Romania (emotional but not vocally acrobatic). It’ll set her apart, and give Russia’s Polina a run for her money in the second half. The scary thing is we have four (Greece, Russia, Armenia, Albania) huge vocal ballads (five if you count Serbia), so I wonder if the public would be cool with sending all of… Read more »
