ALBANIA – Speaking to TV KLAN, the 2020 Eurovision representative Arilena Ara revealed that her 2020 Eurovision entry FALL FROM THE SKY would have been performed in a birdcage, as you can see in the video.
Watching the video of the performance idea, we can say that for us this is. great song that would have failed to convince us with this performance. Too much in the outfit, the imagery of the birdcage, the sentiments coming out and cannot see how this would have convinced the viewers unless they base their votes in the vocals.
In the same interview, Arilena was not clear if she will participate in the next FIK, in order to get the ticket for Eurovision 2021!

ABOUT THE 2020 EUROVISION ENTRY
“Fall from the Sky” is a song by Albanian singer Arilena Ara. It was independently released as a single on 9 March 2020. The song was composed by Darko Dimitrov and Lazar Cvetkovski, and written by Michael Blue, Robert Stevenson and Sam Schummer. Musically, it is a pop ballad with the instrumentation incorporating violins and a piano. The song makes lyrically reference to Arilena’s hopeless desire to overcome deep and perplexing emotions.
The song was scheduled to represent Albania in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, before the contest’s cancellation due to the pandemic of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and its spread throughout Europe. Arilena had been previously selected as the country’s representative, after winning the pre-selection competition, Festivali i Këngës, with the song’s Albanian-language version “Shaj”.
Both versions were met with a favourable response from music critics, receiving praise for their compositions and Arilena’s vocal delivery. An accompanying lyric video for the song was officially premiered to the YouTube channel of the Eurovision Song Contest on 10 March with the music video being ultimately released on 11 May 2020. Footage of Arilena performing the song at the Mother Teresa Square in Tirana, Albania, was broadcast among others during the Eurovision Home Concerts series on 8 May 2020.
