Eurovision 2023: Albania’s Second Rehearsal!

Next up on stage we will be seeing Albina & Familja Kelmendi on their second rehearsal as the representatives of Albania in this year’s competition with “Duje”.

Who are Albina & Familja Kelmendi?

Albina Kelmendi has energised the Albanian pop scene with her fierce vocal talent. At just 16, she reached the final of ‘The Voice of Albania’, after all 4 judges turned their chairs in her first audition. Since then, she’s smashed through various song contests across Europe.

The talented vocalist has always been surrounded by song, growing up in a house of professional musicians, and now two generations of the Kelmendi clan are joining voices to perform in Liverpool.

And music really is a family affair – Albina’s mother Albana and her father Bujar fell in love through music. Alongside her brother Albin and sisters Vesa and Sidorela, they will all be taking to the Eurovision stage.

The rehearsal

Unfortunately this year, accredited journalists don’t get the chance to watch the first and second rehearsals, so we only get the information and content that the organizers officially release to the public.

Albina gives it all the vocals from the opening note. “Duje” is such a heartfelt and dramatic song of love and family togetherness, with the family providing beautiful harmonies and some great dance moves.

The staging for this is the work of Sacha Jean-Baptiste, and the LED wall is all about the black and red of the Albanian flag. There is a lot of pyro, too.

Albania’s Albina and the Kelmendi family are rehearsing for the second time – this is another performance that goes to a whole other level on a big screen. You’ll be able to see a clip of the as-seen-on-TV version on YouTube later – SO much drama, and a brilliant use of the LED wall and floor.

Below you can watch a small clip from the Albania second rehearsal, once it’s published on YouTube:


The Dress Rehearsal for Albania and the rest of Semi Final 2 will be held on the 10th of May.
