After San Marino we travel to Albania who made their debut in 2004. The country is hoping to qualify for their first Eurovision final since 2015 when Elhaida Dani performed “I’m Alive”.
As ever 50% of the vote is being decided by national juries and 50% by you, the public. This creates the most accurate representation of a result likely to be seen in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest this May in Lisbon.
Each voting nation is represented by a jury consisting of past Eurovision, Junior Eurovision and national final participants. Each juror is asked to form a top 10 ranking of their favourite competing songs which is combined with the other jurors in their country. On the jury for Albania are:
- Mishela Rapo – Represented Albania at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Bulgaria, she is the most successful Albanian singer to have taken part in the contest
- Orgesa Zaimi – Participated in Festivali i kenges in 2015 and 2017, making it through to the final in the latest competition
The results of the Albania jury from 1 to 12 points is as follows:
- 1 points – Czech Republic – Mikolas Josef – Lie to Me
- 2 points – Australia – Jessica Mauboy – We Got Love
- 3 points – Belgium – Sennek – A Matter of Time
- 4 points – Estonia – Elina Nechayeva – La Forza
- 5 points – France – Madame Monsieur – Mercy
- 6 points – Switzerland – Zibbz – Stones
- 7 points – Norway – Alexander Rybak – That’s How You Write A Song
- 8 points – Israel – Netta Barzilai – Toy
- 10 points – Italy – Ermal Meta & Fabrizio Moro – Non mi avete fatto niente
- 12 points – Bulgaria – Equinox – Bones
This means after sixteen juries the full results so far are follows:
- Israel – Netta Barzilai – Toy – 131 points
- Czech Republic – Mikolas Josef – Lie to Me – 79 points
- Australia – Jessica Mauboy – We Got Love – 65 points
- Sweden – Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off – 60 points
- Bulgaria – Equinox – Bones – 58 points
- Austria – Cesar Sampson – Nobody But You – 49 points
- Finland – Saara Aalto – Monsters – 41 points
- Germany – Michael Schulte – You Let Me Walk Alone – 40 points
- Belarus – Alekseev – Forever – 40 points
- Belgium – Sennek – A Matter of Time – 39 points
Six countries are yet to score a point from the national juries. These six countries are Albania, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, San Marino and Slovenia.
