OGAE Second Chance Contest

The 1994 OGAE Second Chance Contest was the 8th OGAE Second Chance Contest, organized by the members of international Eurovision Song Contest fan club OGAE to select the best song not to make it to the Eurovision Song Contest through their national finals. This year's contest was held in Oslo in Norway after Merethe Trøan won the 1993 Contest with "Din egen stjerne".[1]

16 songs competed in the contest with Russia entering the contest for the first time. However a number of countries were forced to withdraw: Belgium, Denmark, Israel, Slovenia and Turkey were all forced to miss the contest due to being relegated from the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest; Slovakia and Switzerland was also absent from the contest due to no national finals being held in the country for this year's Eurovision.

For the second time "Guest Juries" were used in the contest, allowing OGAE branches from countries who held no national final for Eurovision 1994 to compete in Second Chance. The Guest Juries for the 1994 contest came from France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Israel, Luxembourg and Spain.

Sweden were the winners of the 8th edition of Second Chance, represented by singer Gladys del Pilar with "Det vackraste jag vet", a song composed by Michael Saxell with lyrics by Ingela Forsman. The runner-up position went to the United Kingdom's Frances Ruffelle, while third place was awarded to host country Norway and Madam Medusa.
