Autriche 2004

Austria was represented by Tie Break and the song « Du bist« . The Austrian National Final ‘song.null.vier’ was held on March 5, 2004, hosted by Boris Uran and Oliver Auspitz with the winner being chosen by televoting. One wildcard was reserved for a newcomer, while the other nine contenders were established Austrian acts, supplied by the country’s record companies. The winner of the competition was the boy-band Tie-Break who sang the German song « Du bist ». Waterloo & Robinson already represented Austria back in 1976 where they ended up in 5th position with a song called ‘My little world’. Tie Break consists of Stefan di Bernardo, Tommy Pegram, and Thomas Elzenbaumer.

At Eurovision, the band had a very subtle performance with simple choreography. The stood in a circle at the beginning of the song and then remained linear in the rest of the movements. The song failed to leave a lasting impression, which is understandable because of its early draw. The typical boy band ballad gained only 9 points, which placed them 21st out of 24 performers.
