"One Night's Anger" (Albanian: Zemërimi i një nate) is a song by Albanian singer Hersi. It was chosen to represent Albania at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Denmark after winning the 52nd edition of Festivali i Këngës in its Albanian version, Zemërimi i nje natë.[1] The version which has been performed at Eurovision's official video was released on 16 March 2014.[2]


The song is written by Albanian composer Genti Lako and lyricist Jorgo Papingji. Matmuja has said that the song is about the dangers of letting anger guide one's decisions, and the importance of thinking before reacting.[3]

Critical reception

The song has received mixed reviews from music critics since its performance premiere on Festivali i Këngës. ESC Tips gave the song a rating of three stars out of five, describing the song as a "work-in-progress," and suggested that at the present time it would be "[difficult to] predict Albania’s course in the contest." They went on to say that the instrumentation will need to be altered to juxtapose verses and chorus "[...] for those elements to provide clear separation and add layers to the song."[4]
