The 2004 OGAE Second Chance Contest was the 19th OGAE Second Chance Contest, organised between 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. 21 songs comepted in the contest, held in Växjö in Sweden after OGAE Sweden's win the previous year with "Not a Sinner Nor a Saint" by Alcazar.
Serbia and Montenegro made its Second Chance debut after it debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest 2004. Denmark, Finland and Macedonia returned to the contest after being relegated from the Eurovision Song Contest 2003 - Belgium and Turkey returned after holding internal selections the previous year, while Malta returned after being disqualified the previous year.
A number of countries also withdrew from the contest - Estonia and Israel had been set to compete in the contest, however withdrew at a late stage after selecting their entries (namely "Homme" by Maarja Liis-Ilus and "Freedom" by David D'Or respectively). Iceland withdrew due to no national final being held, while Romania withdrew out of choice. Ireland withdrew, but competed as a guest jury.
