At Junior Eurovision[edit]

The 2004 Eurovision Song Contest was initially to be held in Manchester. However ITV abandoned the project due to finance and scheduling problems.[1] It was therefore moved to Lillehammer in Norway.

On the night of the contest, Cory Spedding performed 13th in the running order of the contest, following Latvia and preceding Denmark. At the close of the voting Cory has received 140 points, placing 2nd of the 18 competing entries, beaten by María Isabel of Spain.
