Turkish delight on a moonlit night…
Istanbul was the destination chosen by Turkey to celebrate their first Eurovision win.
Greece sent one of their biggest pop stars, Sakis Rouvas, who started the 2004 season as one of the favourites to win the Contest before placing a respectable third.
Serbia and Montenegro (at the time, one nation) sent prolific musician Željko Joksimović, known throughout the Balkans for his compositions. He secured the runner-up position as well as the Marcel Bezencon Press Award (for best composer).
But it was to be the year of Ruslana, delivering a first win for Ukraine. The Wild Dances star had spent the weeks leading up to the Contest on an extensive press tour, which translated to 8 sets of ‘douze points’ on the night.
Istanbul 2004 will remain on the official Eurovision Song Contest YouTube channel to watch whenever you like.
