 The Show –

After all of the performances, where each act was accompanied by an orchestra, we had an interval that began with Eldar & Nigar from Azerbaijan (the winning act at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest).  They performed two songs together, Priceless, and of course, Running Scared.

We were then treated to an English version of Suus by Rona Nishliu (ESC 2012 Albania).  Rona achieved Albania’s best position to date (5th place) at Eurovision.

The results were decided by an expert jury. They were not just from Albania but from places such as Malta and Italy too.

Finally it was decided that Adrian Lulgjuraj & Bledar Sejko with the balkan rock style, Identiet, would go to Sweden and represent Albania at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest.
