Tonight: Festivali i Këngës final live from Albania

Festivali i Këngës 2019 will come to an end today with 20 final candidates left in the race to win the 58th edition of the Albanian music festival. Will the fan favourite Elvana Gjata convince the jury panel?

A total of 20 acts competed in the FiK 58 semifinals that took place earlier this week. After watching all the performances, a professional jury panel selected the 12 entries that will compete at today’s live final:

The winner, who will win the right to wave the Albanian flag in Rotterdam, will be selected by a 5-person jury panel made up of two Albanian professionals and three international members, Swedish producer Christer Björkman, Greek composer and songwriter Dimitris Kontopoulos and the Icelandic Head of Delegation Felix Bergsson. 

Today’s show will have a very special guest as Eleni Foureira will perform for 15 minutes on the stage at Tirana’s Palace of Congresses. She will bring the “Fuego” to the Albanian public and other hits. Eleni was born in Albania and represented Cyprus at Eurovision 2018 giving the island its best result until the date. Her song was also a success on the charts that summer.

Don’t miss the Albanian final, hosted by Alketa Vejsiu, from 21.00 CET on the ESCplus viewer.
