Lindita is artist number 3 to take to the stage again, once again swapping places with Australia. It’s unsure why this has happened with both rehearsals.

  • Small camera work changes are noticeable, adding more flow to the performance
  • An official outfit has been presented

Today Lindita wears her final costume. It is a fitted white dress with a flowing translucent skirt. She wears a white leotard underneath, and the bodice of the dress is covered in vertical strips of silver sequins. The pattern the sequins are arranged in gives Lindita a very flattering shape. Around the neckline, off-white flowers complete the dress. She says her dress is white to symbolise hope, and is supposed to look angelic to represent the “angels that could save the world”.

Lindita still performs with her 4 backing vocalists, however there seems to be a slight struggle with the bigger notes. Time will tell if we’ll see Albania in Saturday’s final.
