The song beat spirited competition from the Greek and Serbia and Montenegrin entries but accusations of political bias in the voting may have marred the event. Below are some of your views of Eurovision 2004. Did anyone notice that the small countries didn’t give any points to the three big ones of Europe (UK Germany and France)???!!! But Max (Germany) and James Fox should have been on a better position!!!Diana Stuttgart GermanyBrilliant! I am from Serbia and my wife is Ukrainian what better result could we hope for!! 2 great Slavic songs Slava Ukrajini! Zivela Srbija!Mihailo and Olja Bristol UKIt was a hilarious show as always. The presenters were priceless and the voting entirely predictable.

Turks deliver Eurovision delight
BBC News – May 16, 2004
Istanbul’s Abdi Ipecki stadium is usually a sweaty basketball stadium but was transformed into a stage fit for one of the biggest musical events in the world. With an enthusiastic capacity crowd flying flags of many nations the atmosphere was electric – clearly this contest was shaping up as a night to remember. Last year’s Turkish victor Sertab Erener set the stadium ablaze with a rousing rendition of her winning song surrounded by a coterie of gold-dusted nymphs and then the magical whirling dervishes. Presenters Meltem Cumbul and Korhan Abay followed the Eurovision tradition for elaborate costumes indulging in cheesy banter and slightly stilted delivery.

Oh how we giggled where do they rake these people up from. I am avid fan of this programme and Terry Wogan is the king for me. His commentry is spot on and im sure the guiness is in full flow in his litte tower. Xena princess warrior came through as the winner and boy if she was suprised I don’t know what the hell I was. I mean come on if you can dance to that your welcome at my pad anyday. I was a tad upset for our James the guy was clearly the best singer on the night and for me he outperformed the lot but as we all know that really doesn’t matter in this contest.
