What we already know about Festivali I Këngës 61!

Festivali i Këngës returns once again to select Albania’s representative for Eurovision 2023, but with some changes to the format this year! Most notably, the Eurovision representative will be chosen through a public SMS vote rather than a jury selection like in previous years.

Furthermore, an extra night has been added to the schedule this year. Albanian TV presenter Arbana Osmani will present all four shows. Osmani previously revealed that the special guests over the course of each night will be Margarita Xhepa, Kledi Kadiu, Ambeta Toromany and Gala Aliaj.

Albania’s Eurovision Journey

In 2004, Albania made its debut into the Eurovision Song Contest with Anjeza Shahini with “Image of You” which managed to place 7th in the final. Since their debut, Albania has participated 18 times, and made the final 10 times, with their best result in 2012 where Rona Nishliu placed 5th with “Suus”. In 2022, Ronela Hajati represented Albania with “Sekret”. However, despite being a fan favorite, Albania did not manage to make the final, placing 12th with 58 points from both the juries and televoters.
