"Foi magia" ("It was magic") was the Portuguese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, performed in Portuguese by Sofia Vitória.

The song is an up-tempo number, with Vitória singing about how she felt when she first saw her lover, a feeling she describes as "magic" and otherwise impossible to explain.

As Portugal had not finished the 2003 Contest in the top 10, the song was performed in the semi-final. Here it was performed seventh, following Andorra's Marta Roure with "Jugarem a estimar-nos" and preceding Malta's Julie & Ludwig with "On again...off again". At the close of voting, it had received 38 points, placing 15th in a field of 22, thus failing to qualify for the final and requiring Portugal to qualify from the semi-final at the next Contest.

It was succeeded as Portuguese representative at the 2005 Contest by 2B with "Amar".
