And here they are! The 14 finalists set to compete in tomorrow’s last Festivali i Këngës 55 show have been revealed, but who will go on to represent Albania at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest?

Over the course of 2 evenings, 2 semi-finals have taken place at the Palace of Congresses in Tirana which saw the 24 participants perform for a place in tomorrow’s Grand Final of Festivali i Këngës (FiK) 55.

Following the last performance of the second semi-final, it was down to a combined jury and, for the first time, a public vote to decide which 14 acts should qualify to Friday’s finale; 7 acts from each semi-final. The public votes which were received were worth double that of a jury member.
