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!

Ruslana would like a brand new concert hall put up especially for Eurovision. “In Kiev we have no venues which are suitable for hosting the competition” she said. “I think that a new venue should be built and I think that everyone here is coming to the same conclusion. Many of the potential venues in the capital are either too small or were built during the Soviet era and need major modernisation work.

In this first edition of a two part special Kemal Shahin takes a look at how the final contest shaped up from the vocals to the music to the catwalk queens of fashion. An insightful look at the 12 who didn’t make it to finals and a whole lot more as we step into ‘the greenroom’. And so just like that the 49th Eurovision Song Contest is over and the 50th one is already fast approaching! What can I say? TRT did a brilliant job in delivering a show of the highest quality and professionalism which gripped viewers across Europe and as a Turk I can say that they made Turks living everywhere truly proud. So to all those who said they couldn’t wouldn’t or shouldn’t I hope you enjoyed the show! I will say no more on the matter regarding the silly rumours and remarks but learn and take note as the baton is passed over to NTU.
