The music video for Albania’s entry for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2022 was released on Saturday, November 5th. The video features artist Kejtlin Gjata performing the ballad Pakëz diell (A little sun).
The performance begins with Kejtlin in black and white, and progresses to increasingly colorful backlighting and soaring vocals, ending the final chorus with a long close up of Kejtlin’s hands cupping the sun the song’s narrator wishes to share with with a loved one. The video clocks in at 3 minutes and 17 seconds, suggesting the final performance in Yerevan may have a few tweaks in the arrangement.
Kejtlin Gjata will join the ranks of the 16 artists competing in Yerevan, Armenia on December 11th. This represents the 8th time Albania has competed in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest since their debut in 2012. Their best result was in 2015 with Mishela Rapo’s performance of the song “Dambaje” which placed 5th with a score of 93 points.
