Arilena Ara wins the 58th Festivali i Këngës, therefore she will represent Albania in the Eurovision!
After a long night, Fesivali i Këngës, the festival that also served as the Albanian national final came to an end. At the show, Eleni Foureira also appeared and stole the show!
Arilena’s victory making her the first act of the year that released her entry! Of course, until organiser’s final deadline for submitting the entries in middle March, the song can be modified. Albania in its recent participations usually edits the song, improving the sound and sometimes even translating it to English. Therefore, the winning edition of Festivali i Këngës may not be the same that we will listen to in Rotterdam, but that doesn’t change the fact that we have our first song! Yeah, the national final season has just begun!
Here you can listen to the winning entry “Shaj”:
