At Eurovision

For the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, a semi-final round was introduced in order to accommodate the influx of nations that wanted to compete in the contest. Since Austria placed 6th in the previous contest year, Austria automatically qualified to compete in the final. They performed second, following Spain and preceding Norway ended 21st with 9 points. As Austria failed to reach the top 12 in the final, the country was forced to compete in the semi-final of the 2005 Contest.
