Anjeza Shanini was the very first representative for Albania almost a decade ago and things have progressed quite swiftly for the nation at the Eurovision Song Contest noting that they have managed to make it through to the final of the competition a total of six times, making them reasonably successful. Their most recent entry bearing the name Suus by Rona Nishliu finished in fifth place bettering their debut result achieved with the track The Image of You. Following their success, there seems to be expecting by RTSH to manage yet another positive result and some of the tracks presented in this edition of the Festivali I Kenges are actually quite strong and thus, with the right arrangement, success could be in the bag once more. Following two evenings of semi-finals, the finalists have been selected.

A couple of days back, it was revealed by the Albanian broadcaster; RTSH that the final result will be decided through tele-voting and a panel of judges, out of which three will be foreign and another four will be local. Amongst the jury there is also none other than the Public Broadcasting Services Chairman; Joseph Mizzi who brings in a wealth of experience through journalism and having accompanied the Maltese delegation for the past two years whilst looking forward to another year. Amongst the performers in this years' edition of the Festivali I Kenges, there are acts such as Anjeza Shanini who was mentioned above and has already represented Albania at the Eurovision Song Contest as well as Kejsi Tola, a former representative from 2009 whose Carry Me In Your Dreams finished in seventeenth place. The final of this years' edition will be taking place this evening as from 20:30 CET and will be streamed live on ESCTV. The editorial board of will be covering the event LIVE so stay tuned.
