Morten Kaiser from Denmark
Albania was one of the first countries to select their song for Eurovision 2016. “Përrallë” became “Fairytale” and I actually got used to listen to the Albanian version of the song. Eneda is very sweet, but the English version of the song doesn’t work for me. The powerful opening to the chorus is gone. “That’s why I love you.. u.. u..” Well.. I don’t love the song, but she needs one hell of a scene show to mess with the favorites of this semi final. Even though I really didn’t really like the Albanian version, I prefer this now.
Fotis Konstantopoulos from Greece
The song originally selected was better product than its final version. The problem with “Fairytale” is not the new English lyrics but the production of the song. It could turn out as an anthem performed with a pompous dress (as the singer decided already) but the music is not strong enough for a TV presentation. The vocal performance of Eneda is undoubtedly great but there is something missing from the sound. Don’t know if Albania is so strong this year to qualify. I think I have to hear the song through a TV screen while performed live to make my final judgement. So far I think it’s on the edge.
Luka Popovic from Serbia
Albania has had some great entries over the past few years. I’m not a massive fan of this one. It just kind of gets lost, especially in this year’s strong field of songs. It will need a really good stage performance and a very good draw to be competitive. I don’t know what more can be said of this song. It just misses the mark for me and I’m not so certain it will manage to qualify to the final.
