  1. Copy/paste:

    Well, I’ve listened through the hopefuls (except two that were unavailable) and you can definitely tell the two trends of FiK: mid-tempo rock sung by a guy and shouty mid-tempo ballad sung by a girl. The variation is not that great and most of the songs are ranked as 5-7/12, ok to good. Orgesa’s song was certainly the best out of these imo and it might be a (10/12) if the performance is good.

    SEMI 1
    Orgesa Zaimi – “Një shishe në oqean” (9/12)
    Luis Ejlli – “Pa mbarim” (7/12)
    Dilan Reka – “Buzëqesh” (7/12)
    Simbol – “Artiste” (6/12)
    Adrian Lulgjuraj – “Jeto dhe ëndërro” (6/12)
    Kozma Dushi – “Një kafë” (6/12)
    Sigi Bastri – “Ëngjëll I lirë” (6/12)
    Florent Abrashi – “Të ndjek çdo hap” (6/12)
    Egzon Pireci – “Triumf” (5/12)
    Teuta Kurti – “Në sytë e mi” (5/12)
    Voltan Prodani – “Dëgoje këngën O ATË” (5/12)
    Erga Halilaj – “Monolog” (5/12)
    Nilsa Hysi – “Asaj” (4/12)
    Aslajdon Zaimaj – “Merrmë që sot” (3/12)

    Egert Pano – “Mos ik” (?)

    SEMI 2
    Eneda Tarifa – “Përrallë” (8/12)
    Enxhi Nasufi – “Infinit” (7/12)
    Rezarta Smajan & Klodian Kaçani – “Dashuri në përjetësi” (7/12)
    Jozefina Simoni – “Një det me ty” (7/12)
    Lindi Islami – “Për një mrekulli” (6/12)
    Renis Gjoka – “Ato që s’ti them dotë” (6/12)
    Kristi Popa – “Ajo çfarë ndjej” (5/12)
    Andi Tanko – “Dielli vazhdon të më ngrohë” (5/12)
    Genc Tukiçi – “Sa të dashuroj” (5/12)
    Besa Krasniqi – “Liroje zemrën” (5/12)
    Klajdi Musabelliu – “Ndodhë edhe kështu” (5/12)
    Evans Rama – “Flakë” (4/12)
    Flaka Krelani – “S’je për mu” (4/12)
    Revolt Klan – “Dashurinë s’e gjejmë dot” (3/12)

    Entela & Niku Zhula – “Muza” (?)

  2. Ah, one more song available!

    Egert Pano – “Mos ik” (7/12)

    Now I’m just waiting for the last one.

  3. Listening to the FiK semifinalists wasn’t a very pleasant experience.I wasn’t able to listen to some of them.I don’t really know why.Anyway,i think the first semi is much betten than the second one.I liked Nilsa,Orgesa,Luis,Egzon and Diland from semi 1 and from semi 2 hmm…maybe Eneda,Jozefina,Flaka,Lindi,Rezarta&Klodian,Enxhi…

  4. By the way,is there an Albanian song which doesn’t contain the word “Dashuria” in its lyrics?lol

  5. I am very busy atm and will probably hear the FiK entries for the first time when they come onto stage in the semi-finals.

  6. just listened to them once…
    On first listening I agree that Orgesa Zaimi has the most distinctive song but I also liked the ones from :
    Genc Tukiçi, Luiz Ejlli, Jozefina Simoni, Besa Krasniqi and Eneda Tarifa. All scored 7/10 and plus.
    Then I would add : Nilsa Hysi, Voltan Prodani, Sigi Bastri, Enxhi Nasufi, Flaka Krelani, Erga Halilaj, Egzon Pireci, the duet and Lind Islami

  7. There’s even less point to these now than usual that we know that they can substitute out the song entirely like they did this year. Usually we’d know one of these would be in Stockholm but actually there’s not even a guarantee of that any more.

    Albania really needs to update their selection.

  8. Another Eesti Laul entry.It’s Anett Kulbin with “Strong”.I like it!
