At Eurovision[edit]

On the night of the final Alberti performed 13th in the running order, following Malta and preceding Germany. At the close of voting "Waar is de zon?" had received 4 points, placing the Netherlands 23rd of the 25 entries, ahead only of newcomers Estonia and Lithuania. The Dutch jury awarded its 12 points to contest winners Ireland. The low placement meant relegation from the 1995 contest for the Netherlands; the first time the country would be forced to miss a contest due to poor results.[2]
