Tonight Eurovision 2020 got its first song! The Albanian selection process Festivali i Kenges hosted its final earlier this evening. The song competition, now in its 58th year crowned Arilena Ara as the winner. She will go on to represent Albania in Rotterdam with the song ‘Shaj’.
It’s hard to believe that we are just one day away from having the first Eurovision 2020 song confirmed. Albania’s FiK58 got underway on Thursday and Friday evening with the two semi final shows. 20 songs competed over the two nights and on Friday night an international jury panel made up of three experts decided which 12 would advance to Sunday’s live final.

Ahead of the first show tomorrow night, we take a look at the competing songs and rank them from our least favourite to our favourites. Check out what we made of the line up and comment with your thoughts. Do you agree with us?
