|OGAE Second Chance Contest|
The 2000 OGAE Second Chance Contest was the 14th OGAE Second Chance Contest, organised between members of the international Eurovision Song Contest fan club OGAE to select the best song not to make it to the Eurovision Song Contest through each country's national finals. The 2000 Contest was organised by OGAE Turkey, after Turkey's win in the previous year's contest with "Unuttuğumu Sandığım Anda" by Feryal Başel.
21 countries took part in the 2000 Contest: Latvia made its Second Chance debut after debuting at the Eurovision Song Contest 2000, and seven countries made their returns to the contest: Estonia, Finland, Macedonia and Switzerland returned after a year's absence, Romania returned after last taking part in 1996, Iceland for the first time since 1994, and Spain for the first time since 1991. However Bosnia and Herzegovina, Portugal and Slovenia were releaged from the 2000 Eurovision, making them ineligible to compete in the 2000 Second Chance Contest, while Italy also withdrew after three entries were sent from 1997 to 1999.
At the end of the voting Finland's Anna Eriksson was declared the winner with the song "Oot voimani mun", Finland's first (and so far only) victory in the contest. The United Kingdom came second with Catherine Porter and "Crazy", while Spain came third with "Sueño su boca" by Raúl.
