Re: ALBANIA 2020

Hope they send another good entry, one of the most underrated countries in Eurovision :( ... But they need to improve on staging if they want to win!!

Re: ALBANIA 2020

Over the coming weeks and months before Eurovision 2020, we at ESC United will be looking back at the decade we leave behind, country by country. First up, naturally, is :al: Albania!

Find out what our team though of this decade's Albanian entries and have your say on your favourite of the 10s in our poll!

Rona will always remain the best thing from Albania this decade for me. I also listen to Elhaida Dani’s «I’m alive» occasionally xmusic

I wish Elhaida returns as a composer in FiK 58. Her work getting stuck in the semi was unjustifiable.

Re: ALBANIA 2020

Albania was great in the past decade. However, their entries lack the necessary qualities to be successful at ESC. I will repeat this very year but, please ditch Fik and go for Kenga Magjike to choose the ESC entry. Songs from the latter prove much more successful in the charts.

If you take offence at that you're going to HATE some of my rankings in the coming weeks... not going to make myself popular around here one bit :lol:

Re: ALBANIA 2020

I voted for Rona because only fools would go against God's wishes (but Jonida is my second choice, she slays xheart).

With that being said, Albania rocked this decade, that's for sure. The amount of fantastic and charismatic vocalists they have is insane (while in France we struggle to even have one person who can properly sing in Destination Eurovision :lol:)

Out of all their entries, the only ones I didn't like were "World" and "Fairytale", I found the revamps and translations... unfortunate, to put it diplomatically. I'm not into "Identitet" either, but I respect it.

The rest had my seal of approval, even the underrated Aurela and Hersi. xlove

IOTAP You only gave Jonida a 4.

And I thought [MENTION=4371]Sean[/MENTION] and I would settle down in a near future, call our pet Eugent and live a passionate Eurovision-couple life in Michael Rice's land.
I should have known better.

At least he gave "Suus" six points, otherwise I'd have called the police right away. :mrgreen:

Re: ALBANIA 2020

Personally, I think that Albania had a really great decade.
It reached my personal Top 10 4 times: 2012, 2015, 2018, 2019. It has been a bit of a hit or miss, though because apart from that, I just think that 2016 was decent.

I don't want to see FiK removed from determining the Albanian entry because I do love some high quality tracks.

Albania/Kosovo might have a modern and active music scene but I'd always prefer tracks like their 2010's finalists to generic autotune stuff accompanied by a trashy beat.

Re: ALBANIA 2020

I like a lot of Albanian entries but they haven't made my top 10 too often. They were my 3rd in 2012, my 6th this year and my 10th in 2013(I more prefer that entry to Armenia's than like absolutely love it).

Latest Rumours say that Arilena travelled to USA to record her FiK-Entry.

Inis Neziri won New Wave a few days ago. Here is her Night 2 performance of her 2017 FiK song Piedestal

I really hope for Arthemisia Mithi. Something in her voice just mesmerizes me

I don't know if she could survive FiK with her brand. Should she be recruited for an ethnic song/big voice ballad is another question.

She is hard to get the right song for,but has some real talent underneath.She maybe needs a bit longer to get her stage craft better,but could storm things with the right song.Fik has been getting much stronger the last few years.The show itself is very strong now,and last year the songs were getting close.

Id like to see a Kejsi Tola & Krusita Stafa double act.They were both looking good again in Kenga Magjike.
