Albania is again one of the first countries to choose their act, and this year, RTSH, the Albanian broadcaster held a national final to decide who would be heading to Malta to represent Albania at Junior Eurovision. The show featured Destiny as a special guest, and the show was held in the nations’ capital, Tirana.
The 14 acts competing for the title were:
Zhaklina Veizaj – “Bote miresie kerkoj”
Dario Zela – “We need love”
Rajan Kukaleshi – “Vetem nuk je”
Jasmina Hako – “Si fluturim”
Michelle Prodani – “Prinder”
Xhesika Pengili – “Largoje trishtimin”
Marko Strazimiri – “Music makes my day”
Vivian Biaxhorni & Xhamerino Bollati – “Ne mes yjesh”
Endi Muça – “Dua te jem”
Klesta Qehaja – “Besoj” – 1st
Klea Mema – “Dua te jem e lire”
Eda Muça – “Lulja qe me dhurove”
Dea Çobo – “Mirese erdhe flutur”
Vivian Kokeri – “Portat e gëzimit”
The winner was chosen by a jury, which included last years’ participant for Albania, Mishela Rapo. After all the acts performed, it was time to get to business and reveal who would represent the country. The winner is… Klesta Qehaja with the song Besoj!
