Kosovo: New steps in EBU agreement

The director of "Radiotelevizionit të Kosovës" - short RTK, Bekim Hasani, confirmed, that Kosovo got the right to participate in the upcoming Eurovision Dance Contest.

This is a first step towards a soon ESC participation. According to an article by koha.net, Kosovo has been negotiating with the EBU about Kosovo's status in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Düsseldorf in May.
Kosovo took on the mission to participate in the 55th ESC, but not as a performing participant. "RTK is considering the possibility that the Kosovars are offered the possibility of voting" this May, Hasani stated, making clear that Kosovo's intention in the meeting was to be part in the ESC as a voting nation only, like SerbiaMontenegro in 2006, when they could not agree on a representative for their country and only voted in that years ESC in Athens.
Although Bekim Hasani told proudly that Kosovo will be soon enough outfitted with the latest technical modalities providing Kosovars the opportunity to vote for the first time as an own country in the upcoming ESC, the mission was doomed from the beginning. This is not only because of Kosovo being no EBU member, but the rules of the ESC clearly decide that only the 43 particpating countries in 2011 can vote, as usual. What's left is the hope of an offer from EBU side, but that should be considered as very unlikely.

Yet Kosovo, showing more interest every year in being part of the ESC family, at least gave it a try and openly admits to do so to also support Aurela. The new door that opened in the end lead to the participation right in a "European festival of dancers" of the EBU. Whether the "Eurovision Dance Contest", the "Eurovision Young Dancers" or a third contest of the EBU is meant with "Festivali Evropian të Valltarëve", is to be seen.

We hope to hear more positive news in terms of Kosovo-EBU agreements and keep you informed

Could profit from votes of Kosovo: Aurela Gace

1) Karaoke Version long (3:11 minutes) and 2) shorter ESC Version (3:00)


The lyrics for you to sing along:
Feel my heart, feel the words beat low  
I sing my song and the echo flows  
And wherever I go, I just want you to know  
You're the blood in my veins and the love in my soul  
  
You are my wave rippling over sea  
You dry my tears and you make me real  
But wherever I go, I just want you to know  
My moment in time, oh sweet song of mine, ehehej  
  
I'm like an eagle in the open sky  
I'll never land, I'm flying high  
  
Let me share my song with you, just feel the passion  
Love's the message shining through, a child reaction  
It brings my heaven down to earth and this is why  
It drives me mad but it gives me life, I'm free to fly, ehehej  
  
And when I feel that I thirst for you  
I dab my lips with your morning dew  
But wherever I go, I just want you to know  
Sweet song, live forever and I'll live with you, ehehej  
  
I'm like an eagle in the open sky  
I'll never land, I'm flying high  
  
Let me share my song with you, just feel the passion  
Love's the message shining through, a chain reaction  
It brings my heaven down to earth and this is why  
It drives me mad but it gives me life, I'm free to fly, ehehej



 
Zot, qe këngën ma ke fal, më lerë të ndarë
Nuk ka ngjyrë e nuk ka fjalë, muret s'e mbajnë
It brings my heaven down to earth and this is why  
It drives me mad but it gives me life, I'm free to fly, ehehej
