Usually my last post of the year is my top 10 with videos and pictures of some moments from Eurovision but this year I didnt feel like doing that and I also have a pretty clear top 5 so Im going to post their performances and some pictures.

Here is my top 5 of Eurovision 2015:

5.Sweden: Måns Zelmerlöw - Heroes

4.Norway: Mørland & Debrah Scarlett - A Monster Like Me

3.Estonia: Elina Born & Stig Rästa - Goodbye To Yesterday
This was probably my favorite visual performance! They did a fantastic job and I love the song.

Albania 2016: Eneda Tarifa

Photo: Endrit Mërtiri
And the winner of Festivali I Këngës 54 is... ENEDA TARIFA!
As I said in the last post this song was the one I liked most and she really did a fantastic job on stage. There is not a lot to say, Im very happy with the results and I wish her a year full of work and success. Good luck in Stockholm!
PD: Shout out to the acts that I would like to see next year with better songs: Enxhi Nasufi (My 2nd place of this year), Erga Halilaj, Lindi Islami, Jozefina Simoni and Dilan Reka.

Festivali I Këngës 54: Semifinal 2

Time to post about the second semifinal of FiK! Im not very excited about this years FiK but we got a couple of nice performances today, here they are:

Kristi Popa - Ajo çfarë ndjej
I kinda like this song but oh lord! Kristi keep writing songs and stay away from the stage. Maybe that was a bit harsh but what I meant to say is that this song would have been so good with a better singer.

Rezarta Smaja & Klodian Kaçani – Dashuri në përjetësi
They are very good singers but there was a lack of passion and chemistry on stage. Also the song is just ok.

Jozefina Simoni - Një det me ty
I really like this song and she is a good singer but there is something missing in her interpretation, I want her to bring more fire to the stage. 

Besa Krasniqi - Liroje zemrën
This a very cute song and I think we all like it because its weird to have a song like this one in FiK and not because we think it will do great in ESC. (PD: I can see this song taking part in the Icelandic national final)

Enxhi Nasufi - Infinit
BANG! Ladies and Gentleman, thats how you set the stage on fire. I loved the performance, her stage presence was fantastic, and I think the song with a big eurovision revamp could do well in May. That said I think she is much better than the song, part of me would like to see her with a better song next year but the other part wouldnt mind seeing her winning tomorrow, so good luck Enxhi!

Lindi Islami - Për një mrekulli
This is not a winner but a nice song/performance.

Eneda Tarifa - Përrallë
This is probably my favorite song of FiK 54 and Eneda did a great job on stage (The chorus people were a bit weak, The "Oh oh oh oh oh" parts didnt sound well) .

Festivali I Këngës 54: Semifinal 1

Hello everyone! Im back! Finally there's a good reason to start posting again. Its time for me to FiK you all. We didnt get the results from the semifinal so Im just going to post the songs I liked the most. Here they are:

Sigi Bastri - Engjëll i lirë
The orchestra did a good job with this song, it sounded very powerful and what can I say? I love me some dramatic FiK song. I think Sigi wasnt the right singer for this song, I liked her but there were parts that got me a little nervous. Overall I think she did a nice performance but I want to bring her A game for the final.

Dilan Reka - Buzëqesh
There are like 3 different music styles in the song but I kinda like it and I think he did a nice job on stage. I would like him to control his voice a bit next time cause he is a good singer and he doesnt need to show off his voice with all those vocal gymnastics.

Luiz Ejlli - Pa mbarim
This is a pretty decent song with a solid performance by Luiz.

Nilsa Hysi - Asaj
This is one of the most modern songs in FiK and I really appreciate that but the performance was a bit meh. I still liked it but girl you better bring some energy next time.

Orgesa Zaimi - Një shishe në oqean
Im not a fan of this song but Orgesa sold it very well. I want her to come back next year with a good song!

Erga Halilaj - Monolog
Erga was one of my favorites from last year so its great to see her in FiK again. Her song isnt as good as the one she sang in 2014 but its still a pretty nice song, not a winner though.

 Florent Abrashi - Të ndjek çdo hap
I really like his voice and his presence on stage but even if I think the song is ok, I cant see it doing well in Eurovision so I will add him to my "comeback next year with a great song" list.

Teuta Kurti - Në sytë e mi
This was probably my favorite performance of the night. Her vocal performance was great and the orchestra did a nice job with the song. I would like to see her with a softer look. That make up she wore today made her look like a villain.

Aslajdon Zaimaj - Merrmë që sot
This is a really nice modern song and he is very good on stage. Lets hope he gets into the final. Dont fuck it up juries!
