The people at RTSH are an inconsiderate lot. Every year they know that lots of us celebrate a festival based on a kid being born in a barn, and what do they do? They go and give Europe collective indigestion by arranging a three-night musical spectacular right in the middle of the cold cuts!

This year sees no exception to their cunning plan, and it seems that RTSH has leaked the rules to the 56th Festivali i Këngës and done a snazzy new advert to prove that (this time) they mean business!

Usual Eurovision rules apply, and you have to submit the song between 2nd and 10th November in Tirana.

Expect it to be altered by the time it gets to Lisboa though!!
