The DMGP was held at the Music Hall in Aarhus, hosted by Camilla Miehe-Renard and Mek Pek. Ten songs took part with the winner being decided by two rounds of televoting. In the first round the bottom five songs were eliminated, then the remaining five were voted on again to give the winner. One of the other participants was Birthe Kjær, who had finished third at Eurovision in 1989.
On the night of the final Frandsen performed 13th in the running order, following Portugal and preceding Norway. Performed by Frandsen seated at a piano, the song was very different in style from the uptempo hook-laden pop offerings which had become something of a Danish trademark since their return from hiatus in 1978. It appeared however that "Lige der hvor hjertet slår" lacked the instant appeal of songs such as those which had brought Denmark five consecutive top 10 finishes between 1986 and 1990, as at the close of voting the song had received only 8 points (5 from Norway and 3 from Sweden), placing Denmark 19th of the 22 entries, to that date the country's worst Eurovision placement. The Danish jury awarded its 12 points to contest winners Sweden.
