  • Nadia & Genc Tukici – Ju flet Tirana

  • Devis Xherahu – Bisedoj me Serenaten
  • Kanita – Ankth
  • Kamela Islamaj – Me Ngjyros

Semi-Final 2 – 20th December

  • Kastro Zizo – Asaj
  • Tiri Gjoci – Me goten bosh
  • Olta Boka – Bote per dy
  • Era Rusi – Eja merre
  • Wendi Mancaku – Ende
  • Robert Berisha – Ajo nuk eshte une
  • Gena – Shqiponja e Lire
  • Eli Fara dhe Stresi – Bohem
  • Arilena Ara – Shaj
  • Valon Sheku – Kutia e Pandores

Five songs from each of the semi-finals will advance to the Grand Final on Sunday, December 22nd.

Along with this news, we also have word that the span of shows will include some special international guest stars.

However, not only Albanian artists, but also 3 internationally renowned artists will climb the stage of the 58th Song Festival. Mahmood, who will light the first night, Giusi Ferrieri, who will lift the second night, and Eleni Foureira, who will donate a never-before-seen spectacle to an Albanian final night.

Eleni of “Fuego” will “land” in Tirana with all her staff attending the most important world events and will begin preparations for the final night. The singer of Albanian origin will not perform 3 or 6 minutes, but will perform a full 15 minutes of her most popular hits, including “Fuego”. The performance will be accompanied by a large body of dancers, with pyrotechnical effects and many other surprises you will learn on the night of December 22nd. If Eleni’s Eurovision performance impressed you, then this one at the Song Festival will be “Fuego” in the full sense of the word!

Full schedule:

  • Thursday 19th December – Semi-final 1, Mahmood performance
  • Friday 20th December – Semi-final 2, Giusy Ferriera performance
  • Sunday 22nd December – Grand Final, Eleni Foureira performance
