Elhaida Dani — Albania’s Eurovision 2015 starlet — has released the much-anticipated Albanian-language version of “I’m Alive”. The Albanian title is “Në jetë”, which translates as “In life”. Once again Elhaida showcases her amazing voice — and this time in her native tongue. It’s a great gift to her fellow Albanians and essential listening whether you speak Albanian or not. She appears to have shot most of the video at the same time as her English-language video — or at least used the same footage and green screen. In either case, it’ll feel familiar (but in a good way). #tearsinreverse.

A quick glance at social media suggests that fans like this, but are pleased she is singing in English at Eurovision. As Elhaida told us herself, she wants as many people to understand her message as possible, so English was the natural way to go.

Elhaida Dani – Në jetë

Elhaida busy on promo tour

Elhaida has had a really busy schedule before the Eurovision Song Contest. Last week she was in London for the London Eurovision Party and the following day she headed to Macedonia to promote her entry. She travelled to the cities of Skopje, Tetova, and Gostivar. In Tetova she had a concert where she performed both versions of her song and other songs. She also visited the local university. Miss Dani will also be in Athens and Budapest soon.

Tetova – Macedonia today 🙂 Thanks to the Municipality of Tetova, SEEU South East European University and Universiteti Shtetëror i Tetovës (USHT) #ImAlive Eurovision Song Contest for #buildingbridges

I hate to be rude, but Nicky, go get locked in an asylum (with all respect to everyone) if you want to keep criticising my country! You are seriously pissing me and everyone else off! Whats wrong with you?! You either glorify it or else hate it to the point of insulting a singer and her entire nation!

@Nicky1991 I am not a fan of Amber but how dare you call her a slut! She is far from anything like that, despite the fact you are basing your hatred off a song. Shame on you.

I love this version! I think that every country should sing in their own language. I don’t need to understand what does the song means for loving it… so it would have been better to sing in albanian. Anyway, I love it in english too.

I love this woman! This sounds excellent in Albanian or English, and I am cheering for her to win 100%. Good luck Albania!

I love both! However, she is right to sing the English version so people can understand the somg

Her voice is amazing, but this sounds way worse than the English version, it’s like it’s a weakened version of I’m Alive.

I want this, Norway, Azerbaijan, Poland, Israel or my country, Spain to win, and i’m pretty sure one of them will win this year :3

I hate this entry, because this is very popular for no reason.

Both versions give me the same awesome vibe. The English version had what Eurovisin needed and the Albainian one had what music really needed.

@ Mar Last year we gave Italy 10 points. Emma is quite known in Albania and so was Marco Mengoni and ofc Nina Zilli . As fo Raphael Gualazzi(2011),we all know that it was just EBU pushing everyone to vote him in order for Italy to stay in ESC.

Who cares about the OGAE voting anyway? It’s fun to watch but no reference by any means?

@Alexa, is that why you gave Italy your twelve in 2014, 2013 and 2011?

Wow this version is so good, I like it even better than the english one. It saddens me to see so many haters of Albania in this site. I thought they deserved to be in the final last year, and I’m hoping Elhaida will at least make top 10 in Vienna.

I don’t know why you give sp much importance to some fam pages or clubs voting. I didn’t even know we had one in Albania. Only today at WiWi I read about this. They don’t represent no one but themselves. I saw this club gave 12p to Italy but I guarantee you neither the jury nor the Albanian public will vote Italy. We are really close to Italy so we know their music like our own…we aren’t impressed easly. Il Volo isn’t the type of Italian music we prefer and not the type of songs we vote! Possible 12p points… Read more »

Well look how badly Malta (0 zero points so far!) & Georgia (9 points) are really doing too in OGAE voting so far.. The Common Linnets last year had finished 15th(!!) on the OGAE voting receiving just ONLY 31(!!) points overall! The song of Holland was pretty much invisible & ignored by the eurofans… And just look what it did in real EuroVision…It almost won the Vision & was the most succesful song in charts from all including the winning *Rise Like A Phoenix*! So the OGAE fan club voting is not truly representative about how a song will do… Read more »

Well in my opinion as i have seen how many eurofans claiming that this song can win even in the Diamond Vision of Vienna…Well i don’t really think so about that.. It is very good song & from the really nice songs that stand out from the rest ones.. Elhaida can not only qualify to the final but do very descently there…We will see how good she willl do when the live shows begin.. Albania is not doing good in the OGAE voting so far…Only 5 points by just 2 OGAE fun clubs…Well so far only 8 fan clubs have… Read more »

Not good start in OGAE voting for Albania. Only 5 of maximum 84 points from 7 OGAE clubs. On this site they are on TOP 3 on many polls, wiwi ratings of sons, many views on eurovision.tv you tube channel…..

I find Albanian version more dramatic and safer to sing live . I hope she combines the best elements of both versions for her live performance on May 19th. Music is subjective but I prefer this song to the Swedish one. Just like last year when Sana was ‘convincingly’ leading all the polls and betting odds but in the end ended up 4th.
