In 2014, Dani revealed that she was going to participate at the 53rd edition of Festivali i Këngës, with the hope to represent Albania at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest. Her song “Diell” (Sun) was among the 28 participating entries. The competition was held from 26 to 28 December in Tirana. She was the favourite to win the show. On 28 December 2014, Elhaida won the contest with a total of 82 points.
After Festivali i Këngës, Dani was forced to change her Eurovision song “Diell” to “I’m Alive”, after the original song’s composers decided to withdraw it from the contest. She then competed in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 with this song. She qualified from the first semi final in tenth place.
At the final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 Elhaida Dani placed 17th, with a total of 34 points, similarly to previous Albanian entrants Olta Boka in Eurovision Song Contest 2008 and Kejsi Tola in Eurovision Song Contest 2009.
