Countries could begin announcing their entries on the 29th of July. 49 nations had originally confirmed, but Merland Kademi, the Albanian representative withdrew after his song was included in one of the sneak-peeks and received poor reviews. Had Albania not withdrawn, this edition would have had the most participants, until the 7th edition. Armenia also withdrew from the contest before the submissions closed due to poor results and low interest in the nation. Both countries returned in the next edition.

  • Flag of Albania Albania: Albania had elected a new head of department after their very poor result in the third edition. The broadcaster then internally chose Merland Kademi as their participating artist along with his song "Këtu fillon parajsa" which he had originally performed at Festivali Kenges 51, finishing in fifth place. After the chosen song was revealed to the public and appeared in one of the "sneak peaks", KlanTV voted to withdraw from the fourth edition after the song received very poor reviews from many of the NorthFans. The decision came with great backlash from the public, and the head of department was later expelled from his position. Kademi later commented "My chances of qualifying were already strongly determined before the contest began, but that is also true for many participants in the contest"
  • Flag of Armenia Armenia: The broadcaster withdrew from the contest due to its lack of interest.
