Albania: FiK 58 Songs Revealed!

logoAlbania – After revealing the list of this year’s 20 entrants for FIK 58, the songs have now been published as well. Festivali i Këngës will be used once again to select Albania’s entrant for Rotterdam, though it is unclear if it’s the winner that will go to the contest or another one selected specifically for Eurovision.

We thought that maybe the tragic events would push FiK to early 2020 but it has been reported that the contest will take place as scheduled originally, on the 19th, 20th and 22nd of December 2019. It’s often the case that Albania is the first to pick, since their Festivali i Këngës is older than their esc participation and takes place around Christmas. In 2019, the 58th edition of the contest will select their 2020 entry to Rotterdam, though it’s still unclear whether it’ll be the winner or if another entry will be selected insted, as it was the case for San Remo in the early years of Italy’s return to the contest in 2011, or as it happened in 2015 when the winner went with a different song to Vienna. Moreover, we could get a revamp, or a move to English, as it happened before; however, the fact that Albania qualified twice in a row in Albanian could prevent them from making that move.
