LIVE: Festivali i Këngës – Semi Final 2
Good evening everyone! Tonight seems the remaining 15 songs compete in the second semi final of Festivali i Këngës. Tomorrow night, the final takes place and 18 songs will compete. We discovered last night that the announcement of the qualifiers will be made between 1000 and 1100 CET tomorrow. The fun starts at 2030 CET and you can watch the show HERE. We will be live blogging the show right on this page, so stick with us and Danny and Melissa will take you through the show!
Gazmend – thanks for the comments , I had a few live feed troubles which is why you saw Danny do the last few for the evening. I’ve been following national selection season for close to a decade now and there’s only so much euro-pop I can take before it melds into the same stuff, so any rock to spice things up is appreciated. And certain to stand out, as we’ve seen in the past with Lordi, Manga, Eldrine etc. Dont mind it at all – same can be said for one of my fellow editors Daria ☺️
“Please be gentle with her” you say about your new reporter Melissa (welcome to her btw!). Well I will not only be gentle, but positive. Good too see someone who actually seems to LIKE rock music to comment on the rock songs. No offence to anyone, but I’m honestly a bit bored with all the negative comments on rock songs in general at many ESC-sites, when it comes to coverage on the national finals webcasts. Of course, we have different music taste. But many ESC-fans are also rock fans, and it’s not so nice when a particular music style even get bashed. And most rock songs in ESC-terms are not that unaccessible. ESC is meant to broaden the musical horizon too. Just had to get it off my chest – puh 🙂
Aside from that, I like to read your comments, which are generally interesting. Sometimes with useful info about the musical styles etc. Good luck with further commenting!
