The final Top 5 of the combined jury and TV viewers vote is as follows:
1. �eljko Joksimović- Lane moj (84 points)
2. Peti element- Reka bez povratka (47 points)
3. Negre- Ko nijedna druga (46 points)
4. Negativ- Zbunjena (41 points)
5. Evropa- Evropa (37 points)

Johnny Logan was the special guest of the show, singing quite a big selection of his songs, including all 3 of his winning Eurovision Song Contest songs. He gave out the secret recipe to win the Eurovision- believe in your song, believe in what you sing.

Serbia and Montenegro will compete in the qualifying round of the Eurovision Song Contest in Istanbul on Wednesday, 12 May 2004. This is the country's first appearance on the Eurovision stage since 1992 when Extra Nena sang Ljubim te pesmama for the already dismantled Yugoslavia.
