The national song contest of Albania, called Festival i Këngës, was held for the first time the 21st of December 1962 at the hall of the Arts Institute in Tirana. This year it celebrates its 51st edition. Since 2004 the winner of Festivali i Këngës goes on to represent Albania at the Eurovision Song Contest.
For the last two evenings the semi-finals have been held at the Palace of Congresses in Tirana where 26 songs were originally presented for this year's Festivali i Këngës. Seventeen of them reached tonight's final (among them Kejsi Tola who represented Albania in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow and the very first performer from Albania in Eurovision, Anjeza Shahini):
