ESC 2014 Preview: Albania

Title: Zemërimi i një nate

Artist: Hersiana Matmuja

So there are a lot of ballads in the Eurovision world: Some of them are like Suus, describing their pain at the moment, some are like Moving On, where the singers leave the past behind completely, and then there’s Albania this year. Yes, you might have gotten into something really bitter last night, but you’ll be able to think more clearly in the morning. That probably explains the guitar riff intro clearing up into a ballad- but it’s not supposed to be weak, as it was still able to remind me of Aerosmith’s Angel (a poster child power ballad).

I really hope that Albania and RTSH keep the song in Albanian instead of switching to English. Rona Nishliu proved in 2012 that RTSH doesn’t always need to swap languages to keep the power, and Hersiana Matmuja should be able to do the same.
