OGAE Second Chance Contest
◄1995 1996 1997►

The 1996 OGAE Second Chance Contest was the 10th 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 Farsta in Sweden after Cecilia Vennersten won the 1995 Contest with "Det vackraste".[1]

22 songs competed in the contest with Bosnia and Herzegovina and Macedonia entering the contest for the first time. Several countries returned to the contest, too but no country, which participated in the 1995 edition, withdrew.

For the third time "Guest Juries" were used in the contest, allowing OGAE branches from countries who held no national final for Eurovision 1996 to compete in Second Chance. The Guest Juries for the 1996 contest came from Austria, France, Italy, and Luxembourg which were substitutes for 4 participating countries which had no jury. These countries were Macedonia, Romania, Russia, and Turkey.

Sweden were the winners of the 10th edition of Second Chance, represented by singer Lotta Engberg with "Juliette och Jonathan". The runner-up position went to the Croatia's Novi Fosili, while third place was awarded to Germany and Leon who did not qualify for the Eurovision Song Contest 1996 as the eventual German entry.
