And that’s why I love you… Oh-oh! The stunning Eneda Tarifa from Albania has just finished the first rehearsal of her song “Fairytale” at Eurovision 2016. The Albanian delegation have decided to opt for a much simpler presentation this year. Eneda spends the entire three minutes stationary on stage with minimal changing graphics around her.
The presentation begins with the camera focused on Eneda. As the camera pans out, the LED floor and wall is flushed in a delicate blue graphic. The blue graphic morphs into a gold graphic in the same pattern towards the middle of the song. And that’s about it.
The best part of the entire performance was Eneda’s live vocal. This is by far the best we’ve ever heard her sing and she slayed. She hit her high notes with precision and ease and she looked comfortable and confident on stage.
Albania may be challenged when it comes to qualifying for the final. Being placed between Georgia and Belgium – both of which were highly dynamic and memorable – may work to Eneda’s disadvantage. But she should be proud of her voice in particular.
