🇦🇱 Getting Besa for an Albanian FiKmas: Reviewing Festivali i Këngës 62

It’s a tradition across Eastern Europe, where families gather around the tree to celebrate the three nights of FiKmas.

The 62nd edition of Albania‘s premier song competition delivered a winner by 25 December, but as always, Festivali i Këngës brought the drama.

Michael and Bryan check out just some of the songs that made the FiK grand final, but couldn’t get the public’s attention like Besa Kokëdhima did with her song Zemrën n’dorë. Not even the jury could pick the public’s winner!

Who did the jury choose as the FiK winner?

What bold choice has Bryan made about Mal?

Why has Michael started reminiscing about Ray Martin?
