Radio Televizioni Shqiptar (RTSH) — Albania’s national broadcaster — has confirmed to wiwibloggs that Albania will participate in Eurovision 2016 in Stockholm. To quote Miss Elhaida Dani, we are alive!
Albania will select its 13th Eurovision entry from the long-running traditional song contest, Festivali i Këngës, which turns 54 this year. The contest is scheduled for December at the Pallati i Kongreseve in Tirana. RTSH will accept submissions on October 12 and 13.

Bojken Lako, who finished second in last year’s Festivali i Këngës with the song Të ndjej, is rumoured to make a return this year.
Last year, Elhaida Dani represented Albania with I’m Alive. Elhaida brought Albania back in the finals and placed 17th with 34 points.
