Eurovision 2022: Albania’s First Rehearsal!

The time for all Eurofans has come! Today,  the rehearsals for the 66th Eurovision Song Contest are going to be held in Turin officially. First to take the stage of this years Eurovision Song Contest is Albania, with Ronela Hajati and the song “Sekret“.

Who is Ronela Hajati?

Ronela Hajati was born in September 2, 1989 in Tirana, Albania. She was interested in music from a very young age, Ronela studied ballet and piano and took part in a variety of song and dance contests before making a career in the music industry. Ronela is known for her diversity in music, style and performance. She took part in a lot of Albanian song and dance contests, like Top Fest and Kënga Magjike, and this year she managed to win the 60th Festivali I Këngës, a beloved annual show in Albania, and has more recently been used to select the country’s Eurovision entries. Hajati triumphed over 19 other acts, with some of the brightest names in music amongst them.

The rehearsal

Unfortunately, for the first rehearsals, accredited journalists do not have the opportunity to cover them. The only things that become known are what the event gives to the public.

This performance has incredible drama and impact, and she looks amazing in a sparkly bikini with black boots and pink hair. Four male backing dancers and one very gymnastic female are providing backing support – this is ticking lots of our Eurovision boxes.

This is going to be a great opener to the first Semi-Final next Tuesday – despite some sound issues in the first run-through, her vocal sounds great. On her second run she is more comfortable on stage, with great moves and some pyros maybe will be added on her last run. Also, the waterfall at the front of the stage has been turned on for her last performance for today!

Albania: Listen to a snippet of the revamp of “Sekret”!

A few hours ago, Ronela Hajati, Albania’s representative for Eurovision 2022, shared a small part of the revamp of her song “Sekret“.

Since Festivali i Këngës 60 in late December, Ronela Hajati works on the revamped version of her song for Eurovision Song Contest 2022. The singer posted a video and said that it will be the only snippet of the revamp that we are going to listen. As of now, we don’t know the exact date that the new version of “Sekret” will be published.

Ronela said in the past that she wanted the revamped version of her song to be done in London with the producer Diztortion, who has work with big names like: Shakira, David Guetta and Rita Ora. It is not confirmed, whether Ronela worked with him in the end. She has also not confirmed if the revamp of the song is completed.

In early January, the singer said that she wanted to keep the song’s lyrics both in Albanian and English and especially the phrase «1,2,3 ta marsha» to stay in Albanian. The clip that she published tonight had Albanian as well as English lyrics.
