Albania has already confirmed its participation in Eurovision 2012 which will be held in Baku and the selection system remains the same , through Festivali i Këngës . This year FiK will be celebrating its 50th birthday and according to the organisators , the show will be magical . Unlike last year , this year there will be only one host - Adi Krasta a well known albanian journalist and TV host.The festival will last four nights , one of the night will be dedicated to all the FiK winners. September was the month that song submittions were open to all the interested singers and it closed somewhere in mid-October . Just like the previous years , the entries remain secret until the festival kicks off unless a certain participant wishes to release her/his song earlier - which happened before , but the participants are already revealed to FiK fans. And here they are , most of them are already known to the albanian music industry and are familiar to FiK Altin Goci Bashkim Alibali Bojken Lako Claudio La Regina Dr.Flori Elhaida Dani Elton Deda Endri&Stefi Prifti Entela Zhula Evans Rama Frederik Ndoci Goldi Halili, Gerta Mahmutaj Hersi Matmuja Iris Hoxha Kamela Islamaj Kujtim Prodani Mariza Ikonomi Marjeta Billo Marsida Saraçi Orinda Huta Rona Nishliu Rudina Delia Saimir Braho Samanta Karavella Sindi Berisha Toni Mehmetaj Xhensila Myrtezaj So , there are 28 participants , more information about them will come up later.
