ESCBubble is in Tirana for all three days of Festivali i Kenges 2015, with the aim to bring you this competition as close as possible! We had a fantastic opportunity to watch the moment when all the qualifiers were being revealed, surrounded by some of the participants of the second semi final. We are thus bringing you a video of this announcement, with the reactions of the qualifiers as their names are being announced! Check out this video right here:
We also managed to have a quick chat with Luiz Ejlli, who already represented Albania in the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2006 with “Zjarr e ftohte”, and is now competing in Festivali i Kenges once again, this time with the song “Pa mbarim”. Check out how did he feel when his name was announced, as well as why is he trying to come back 10 years after his Eurovision performance.
Apart from Luiz, we also spoke to Klodian Kacani and Rezarta Smaja – the only duet in the Grand Final of Festivali i Kenges! Check out their first reactions right here:
Moments after the running order draw on Sunday morning, we also spoke to Erga Halilaj about her first impressions, and she also spoke to us about her Eurovision experience as a backing vocalist. Check it out here:
