Last night saw Albanian representative Elhaida Dani take to Facebook to announce that the writer of the song ‘Diell’ had decided to withdraw the song for personal reasons. The bizarre announcement stated that ‘The author of the song ‘Diell’, for personal and irrevocable reasons, has decided to withdraw the song and unfortunately it will be impossible for me to perform it in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015.’
The Albanian broadcaster RTSH has since chosen a replacement song named ‘I’m Alive’ and will debut soon.
What do you think of the decision to change songs? Do you think the author really withdrew, or did Albania think they had better chances with a new song? Let us know your thoughts below.
