Albania start the search for songs for Eurovision 2013

The national broadcaster, RTSH, has requested submission of songs for the Festivali i Kenges competition that selects the song to represent Albania at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden.

The festival is normally held at the end of the year and takes place over three days.  Participants can submit one song on a cd and the composer must include the lyrics.

Only Albanian songwriters can submit songs.  An expert jury will select the final songs on 17 October.

The finals will most likely take place at the  Pallati i Kongreseve in Tirana.

Albania had their best ever result at Eurovision so far this year in Baku when Rona Nishliu finished in fifth place with Suus.

You can see Rona’s performance at the Eurovision final dress rehearsal below.
