After a 2+ hour extravaganza of music with 18 acts taking part in this year’s Festivali i Këngës, the Albanian representative in Eurovision 2021 has finally become clear; Anxhela Peristeri will fly to Rotterdam!

This year’s show took place in the open air Sheshi Italia due to the ongoing pandemic, but that didn’t stop the Albanians putting on a fantastic show to kick-start the Eurovision 2021 national final season in style. 18 acts took part in this year’s final, as follows;
