Austria in the Eurovision Song Contest
◄2002 2004 2005►

Austria was represented by Tie Break and the song "Du bist". The Austrian National Final 'song.null.vier' was held on March 5, 2004, hosted by Boris Uran and Oliver Auspitz with the winner being chosen by televoting. One wildcard was reserved for a newcomer, while the other nine contenders were established Austrian acts, supplied by the country's record companies. The winner of the competition was the boy-band Tie-Break who sang the German song "Du bist". Waterloo & Robinson already represented Austria back in 1976 where they ended up in 5th position with a song called 'My little world'. Tie Break consists of Stefan di Bernardo, Tommy Pegram, and Thomas Elzenbaumer.

At Eurovision, the band had a very subtle performance with simple choreography. The stood in a circle at the beginning of the song and then remained linear in the rest of the movements. The song failed to leave a lasting impression, which is understandable because of its early draw. The typical boy band ballad gained only 9 points, which placed them 21st out of 24 performers.
