Contest overview

Following Morten Boldt's victory in the previous year's competition, the 2004 Home Composed Song Contest was held in Denmark and organised by Tony Søgaard Olsen and Tommy Skotte Larsen.

The contest featured a total of 23 songs from 14 composers, representing six different countries. An entry from Bosnia and Herzegovina was withdrawn shortly after the CDs were distributed to the participants; it is included in the audio recap of the songs, though it should also be noted that the composer eventually chose to submit it again the following year.

After a 13-year absence, Spain returned to the contest in the form of debutant Ángel García González (who would later compete again under the artist name Lobo), while Arno Lüning and Frank Tichy boosted the German contingent with their first appearances and Martin Kahnberg and his band X-Tinction did the same for Sweden.

Despite all the newcomers, the top of the scoreboard had a familiar look to it as Morten Boldt took his second consecutive victory (and his fourth overall) with "Venter på mig". He didn't have it all his own way, though - in fact, with just one jury left to vote, Annika Jansson's "I tusen år" was leading by some distance, followed by "Where Are You" from the stable of Frank and Marion Tichy. However, the final jury was Annika's, and in a finish reminiscent of the 1999 contest, her top mark to Morten was just enough to help him leapfrog into first place and claim victory.
