Albania: The public will choose the 2024 Eurovision representative, while the jury the winner of Festivali i Këngës 62!

A while ago the RTSH press conference for the Festivali i Këngës 62 that is going to take place in December was concluded and we learned some very interesting things!

The first and most important change is the method of selecting the winner. Some time ago we learned that the audience and the committee will choose together the winner of the festival, and at the same time the representative of Albania in the Eurovision Song Contest 2024. However, at the press conference, it was mentioned that the system will remain the same as last year. This means that the jury of the festival will choose the winner of Festivali i Këngës 62 and the TV audience the representative of the country. The two winners may not be the same, as happened last year when the winner of Festivali i Këngës was Elsa Lila, while the representatives of the country were Albina & Familja Kelmendi.

Then it was mentioned that on the third day, the “big” artists will perform with singers who no longer participate, while the “new” artists will sing in a duet, a song from Eurovision. The finalists will be announced after the end of the third night. Last but not least, one of the presenters of this year’s Festivali i Këngës will be Andriana Matoshi.

Festivali i Këngës 62 is expected to take place around the end of December and will include 27 artists, 14 in the “big” category and 13 newcomers.
