After three consecutive nights of Festivali i Këngës and a three hour finale this evening, the Albanian representative for Eurovision 2016 is known! –  Eneda Tarifa will represent the country in #Stockholm.

Eneda Tarifa was victorious this evening with the song “Përrallë”, beating off competition from 21 other songs. In true tradition, the song will likely be reworked for Eurovision. Let’s also not rule out a song change altogether after last year’s representative Elhaida Dani won with the song “Diell” but went on to perform the English language song “I’m Alive” in Vienna.

The top ten placings were as follows:

1st: Eneda Tarifa – Përrallë 
2nd: Aslajdon Zaimaj – Merrmë Që Sot
3rd: Flaka Krelani – S’je për mua
4th: Klodian Kaçani & Rezarta Smaja – Dashuri në përjetësi
5th: Enxhi Nasufi – Infinit
6th: Nilsa Hysi – Asaj
7th: Dilan Reka – Buzëqesh
8th: Teuta Kurti – Në Sytë e Mi
9th: Renis Gjoka – Ato që s’ti them dot
10th: Evans Rama – Flakë

Technical Assistant: I've been here since Day 1 (I actually had a full head of hair back then!), and whilst I enjoy reporting the news, I also aid in keeping things running tip top behind the scenes. Yep, I'm also a bit of a tech geek!
