Eurovision Song Contest 2004, Istanbul, Turkey (Final)
« on: June 16, 2007, 02:00:11 PM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2004, ISTANBUL, TURKEY (FINAL)


The final of the 2004 contest took place 3 days after the semi-final.  The 10 qualifying countries joined the 14 pre-qualified countries in the final.  There were no returning artists in the final at all, although many of the backing singers had been here before.  Also none of the entrants have returned to date.  However there were a couple of entries written by previous participants.  The Bosnian entry was written by Vesna Pisarovic who'd sung for Croatia 2 years previously.  Stefan Raab wrote the German entry, which, unlike his previous 2 compositions, was not a comedy record.  Serbian representative Zeljko Joksimovic would return to write the Bosnian entry 2 years later.  The voting was a long winded process with all the 12 losing semi-finalists as well as the 24 finalists voting.  Debutants Serbia & Montenegro held the lead for almost half the voting.  When Iceland gave Ukraine 12 points they took the lead and were never challenged after that.  The year after their debut Ukraine had won the contest.  With 36 countries voting the scores at the top of the leaderboard were a lot larger than previously.  The top 3 all outscored the previous highest score.
