Re: ALBANIA 2020

Albania is honestly up there when it comes to my favourite ESC countries. They've hit my top 10 in 2010, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019. Although some revamps have been unfortunate, I always just find that Albanian entries always have so much passion behind them.

Re: ALBANIA 2020

Albania has become one of my favourite countries as well. Usually, they are quite hit or miss but if they have something I consider to be "good", it's usually among my favourite entries of the year, e.g. 2012, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019.

Re: ALBANIA 2020

I loved Albania in 2008, 2009, 2010, one of the best 3 consecutive entries imo.
Then they went lackluster for a while, only to strike me in 2015 with one of the best ballads of the decade xheat
And 2019 was.... FIRE.

Tumblr, mostly.
Re: ALBANIA 2020

Yep, I really like Albania as well. Even with a few weakish entries along the way (11, 14, 16, 17) their entries are usually interesting and provide a sound quite unlike that of any other country. It's a shame they never do as well as they deserve.

Except for Suus. Fuck Suus.

I'll add 2018 as well.

It is one of those countries I either love or hate, and then love. xheat

There's...literally no chance that they'll beat themselves in what they've done this year.

Re: ALBANIA 2020

Wow Elvana Gjata!? Is this the same FiK!?!? Maybe finally the Albanian broadcaster caught up with reality and the century we're in... I hope that's the case and it won't be some odd FiK-"compromised" entry...

Re: ALBANIA 2020

Arilena Ara is a big name too! Hope she doesn’t disappoint. Also glad to see Tiri Gjoci give it another shot after being a backing singer for Jonida.

Re: ALBANIA 2020

My jaw dropped when I saw Elvana on the list, but I am also shocked to see Gena and Kanita competing this year. I am very happy that lot's of singers that are really mainstream and popular are competing this year. Elvana, Arilena, Gena are the biggest names there followed by Kanita who is a new singer but very successful. Alberie is also a popular name, winner of FIK 1998, and will be definitely interesting what she'll bring to the contest.

Wow, that's awesome to read! I've always seen FiK as a alternate universe when it comes to Albanian music. I guess that Albania's "success" in this decade might have helped a bit to attract more popular singers?
