Festivali i Këngës 44 took place in the Palace of Congresses in Tirana, Albania. There were two semifinals (16 & 17 December 2005) and a final (18 December 2005). This contest was used to select the third Eurovision Song Contest entry for Albania. 34 songs competed for the win but only 20 made it to the final. In the end, Luiz Ejlli won the first prize and went on to represent Albania in Eurovision. Era Rusi was the runner up. The amount of points for each singer was not announced. Instead, only the Top 3 places were made public. The winner was determined by a 50% jury vote and 50% televote. The RTSH orchestra was present, but the option of playback was also available. The director was Leonard Gjata, and last year's winner Ledina Çelo made a guest appearance.
