Elhaida Dani changes song after composer pulls back
TIRANA, ALBANIA – Last December, Elhaida Dani and her song “Diell” (Sun) won Festivali I Këngës and hence the right to represent Albania in Vienna.
Tonight, on her Facebook page, the young singer made an unexpected announcement(both in Albanian and Italian).
As the winner of FiK she will fly to Austria, but she will perform another song. The composer of “Diell” has decided to withdraw his song for personal reasons. In accordance with EBU rules and the submission deadline, national broadcaster RTSH has decided to select a new song for Elhaida.
The selection process is still unknown, but an announcement is expected shortly.
