Despite France having placed 15th in the 2004 Contest, their position as one of the "Big Four" (along with Spain, Germany and the United Kingdom) guaranteed an automatic final berth. Thus, the song was performed twenty-fourth on the night (following Latvia's Walters & Kazha with "The War Is Not Over"). At the close of voting, it had received 11 points, placing 23rd in a field of 24.
The song is an up-tempo number (with some hip-hop influences), with Ortal singing about the problems caused in the world by the fact that everyone thinks primarily of themselves. She sings that as a result, we forget about those who love us.
