Eneda Tarifa to represent Albania in Stockholm!

There you go, the first Eurovision entry of the season has been chosen this evening. After two semi-finals and the grand final this weekend, the 54th edition of Festivali I Këngës has just come to an end in Albania, thus no other than Eneda Tarifa has taken the trophy and will represent Albania in Stockholm with his/her entry ”Përrallë” (Fairytale), which will be most likely revamped as usual. The song is written by Olsa Toqi. The winning act was picked by a panel of experts live at Pallati I Kongreseve in Tirana.

The results from tonight’s show look as it follows:


  1. Eneda Tarifa
  2. Aslajdon Zaimaj
  3. Flaka Krelani
  4. Rezarta Smaja & Koldian Kaçani
  5. Enxhi Nasufi
  6. Nilsa Hysi

Do you agree with the winner? How do you think the song will place in Stockholm? It is yet to be decide whether Albania will enter the first or the second semi-final of the contest. The allocation draw will take place mid-January.

Last year, Elhaida Dani won FiK 53 with ”Diell” (Sun) but some troubles with the author took the song away from the race in Vienna and the song ”I’m Alive”, penned by Zzap’n’Chriss together with Sokol Marsi, was performed on stage, eventually ranking 17th in the grand final, with 34 points.

I love the Eurovision Song Contest not only because of its amazing production but it also gives me the chance to discover new music every year with hundreds of songs from all over Europe. I've been watching it since 2002, since then I became a huge follower, mostly because of the interest TVE put on it with Rosa from Spain. I've attended the contest three times, in Malmö, Copenhagen and Vienna; Stockholm will be my 4th. I also attended the Junior Eurovision in Malta and Bulgaria where we lived an amazing experienced thanks to all delegations and PBS/BNT organising team.
