History

The Eurovision Song Contest 2003 was the 48th annual Eurovision Song Contest, held at the Skonto Hall in Riga, Latvia on 24 May 2003. The hosts were Marie N and Renārs Kaupers. Sertab Erener, the Turkish entrant, won the contest with “Everyway That I Can”, scoring 167 points. Belgium and Russia were second and third respectively, within three points of Turkey’s score.
The 2003 contest was the last to take place over one evening.. Six countries that sat out the 2002 contest returned from relegation, and were joined by Ukraine, making its debut, with Ukrainian heartthrob Oleksandr Ponomaryov singing “Hasta La Vista”, co-written by Israel’s Svika Pick, who composed the 1998 Eurovision winner, “Diva”.
The pre-contest favourites, Russia’s t.A.T.u., attracted much media attention. Among the other noteworthy contestants were Alf Poier, an outspoken comedian representing Austria; Ich Troje, who attempted to represent two countries; and F.L.Y., a trio of musical veterans representing the host country. Jemini, representing the United Kingdom, finished the contest without a point, the first British entrants to do so.
