Albanie 2007

Albania chose their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 using Festivali i Këngës 45 and the format of two semi-finals which will take place on 21 December and 22 December and the final evening on 23 December 2006. On 20 December, a quarter final took place with 20 newcomers competing for two spots in the actual festival. Albania will be represented at Eurovision by Frederik Ndoci with the song « Balada e gurit », which means ‘The Stone Ballad’. The winning song was chosen by a panel of seven experts.

At Eurovision, the entry was edited to a three-minute version and translated to English under the title « Hear My Plea ». The semi-final was held on May 10. Albania performed as number 11 and did not manage to qualify for the final, receiving 49 points and finishing on a 17th place out of 28.
