Albania 2009 - Kejsi Tola - Carry me in your dreams
« on: December 27, 2008, 11:10:30 PM »

ALBANIA 2009

The first entry for the 2009 Contest has been chosen.  As is becoming customary the first country to chose was Albania.

They chose

Kejsi Tola - Më Merr Në Ëndërr.

It's not yet known whether she will sing in Albanian or English in Moscow.

I really like this song.  :) It is still too early to say how will it do in Moscow because it is the first and only song we know so far, but I hope to see it in final.  :goodjob1:

And I hope her to sing the song in Albanian.  ;)

This absolutely needs a better live perfomance in Moscow. It's a nice song, but she's to static on the scene to capture a good amount of votes.

Agreed ! The song is way too decent (have I really said that ?)
However, unlike many other esc entries in the recent years this one does have that local flavour in there but again ...this is one thing Albania should be admired for.

well as usual FIK (Festival i Kenges) was just absolutely amazing with something like 9 great songs out of 20.. and they of course chose a huge crap. It's noisy, ridiculously poorly performed, she hardly gets high notes in a steady way.. and the melody I never can remember it.. it surely is a weak weak weak albanian entry.. I'm highly disappointed but at least I'm satisfied knowing this doesn't stand a single chance to make it out of the semi finale, next to either huge europop like Turkey which I hate or just better entries like what is coming up in Iceland or Finland..

It was ok for me and i like the Albanian language...lets see how it will be in English.....!!!
(the girl had a great voice but she didnt move AT ALL.. SO IMO THE PROBLEM OF THE ENTRY WAS THERE AND NOT AT THE LANGUAGE).

This song is one of my favorite songs this year. I like the singer - her voice is clear and strong and she has a right vocal training technic when singing (= meaning, that she does not sing with her throat but with her stomache.).  The only negative thing is that she is singing it now in English and not in Albanian.

(By the way - last year's winner, Dima Bilan, is a classical example of a singer who has a completely wrong vocal training technic when singing)


By the way - I did not know that there is so much snow in Albania.  :o

She reminds me the Romanian Lucia Dumitrescu. They both have very good voices and they both miss charisma.

Prefered it at Albanian...!!!
Maybe the best vocals at pop entry...can u imagine this 17 year old year infront of thousand of people.....wowwwwwwwwww she managed it....imo they changed her to better(it was another persong from what we had saw at the Albanian NF but maybe the dress was too short and that green guy didnt suit the choreography so much).Happy it passed the semifinal and she deserved better!

I agree. The song was good imo and it's very cool that this 17 year old girl have performed in the ESC. That's not what most people do when they are 17.
The green guy didn't make sense.

When she goes into the chorus it still reminds me of Nomiza (Cyprus 2000) only speeded up ???
