19.04.08 . Kosovo aiming for Eurovision Song Contest participation
Now that Kosovo is an independent state, the newly born republic has started looking forward to a first appearance in the Eurovision Song Contest. In recent years, the Eurovision Song Contest has proven to offer a great and positive exposure to the new states in the Balkan region.
To select the very first Kosovarian representative for the Eurovision Song Contest, the Akordet e Kosoves festival is considered as national selection procedure, according to Kosovarian newspaper Koha. Akordet e Kosoves, a festival for pop songs, stopped existing a couple of years ago.

Antonio Gashi and Valton Beqiri, who is responsible for Akordet e Kosoves, hope that RTK, Kosovo's national broadcaster, will become an Active Member of the European Broadcasting Union soon. That is the first criteria to be able to participate in the EBU's Eurovision Song Contest. In the best case, Kosovo will make a first appearance in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2009.
