Festivali i Këngës 58

This year's Festivali i Këngës will again be held in December live from the congress hall "Pallati i Kongreseve" in central Tirana, with three nights:

  • 19 December 2019: Semi-final 1
  • 20 December 2019: Semi-final 2
  • 22 December 2019: Final

10 songs will be performed in each of the two Semi-finals. After the second Semi-final we will know which songs the Jury has chosen to qualify for the Albanian final.

Festivali i Këngës is organized by the Albanian national broadcaster Radio Televizioni Shqiptar (RTSH). Since its start in 1966, all artists have been asked to perform live, with a jury selecting the winner. Since 2003 the winner of the festival is Albania's representative to Eurovision Song Contest.

When Albania in 2004 finally applied EBU to participate in Eurovision Song Contest, they agree to let the winner of the country's most popular festival represent Albania.

Albania in Eurovision Song Contest

Since debuting in 2004, Albania has been participating in Eurovision Song Contest every year. Best result is a 5th place in 2012, where Rona Nishliu sang "Suus".

Out of the 16 times Albania has participated, they have qualified for the Grand final 9 times.
