Serbia and Montenegro returned to the Eurovision Song Contest after a 12-year absence, previously as the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

Serbia and Montenegro decided their entrant for the Eurovision Song Contest 2003 through Evropesma 2004, where it was decided, through the use of 8 judges (4 from Montenegro and 4 from Serbia) and televoting, that Željko Joksimović, with the song Lane moje, would sing for Serbia and Montenegro at Eurovision 2004.

However, there was some controversy in the national final, in that the Serbian judges did not give a single point to the Montenegrin songs. However, it was agreed on both sides that Joksimović's song was the best.

Evropesma 2004[edit]

The national final, Evropesma 2004, was held on 21 February 2004 in the Sava Center, Belgrade. 4 songs from the Serbian preselection Beovizija 2004, plus 20 pre-selected songs competed to represent Serbia and Montenegro at the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest in Istanbul.
