Jonida made up for a lack of eagle with world-class emotional vocals.
She was still in the same black and gold dress, but the backing singers are also now in black … and they’re no longer on the ‘rainbow bridge’. They joined her on stage and it helped the performance.
There was also a classy overhead shot about two and a bit minutes in.
Someone listened. The eagele – which did look pathetic – has left the building and in my estimation, Albania rocketed up towards qualification on vocal ability (rather than by default).
Qualifying : Yes
