Elhaida Dani at Eurovision
Elhaida started off her Eurovision journey by winning the 53rd edition of Albania’s most renowned festival – Festivali i Këngës. Her emotional performance of “Diell“ managed to win over the hearts of the all the jury members and get her the ticket to Vienna.
However, due to a dramatic turn of events Elhaida had to come up with a completely new song. This resulted with “Diell” being replaced with “I’m Alive“.
