The song was performed nineteenth on the night (following Italy's Luca Barbarossa with "Vivo (Ti scrivo)" and preceding Portugal's Dora with "Voltarei"). At the close of voting, it had received 64 points, placing 10th in a field of 21.
As befits the title, the song is a ballad, with Lenorman singing about the subject matter that crooners traditionally sing about. That is to say, he sings about the subject matter itself, rather than singing the type of song usually associated with the style. Indeed, he likens the songs themselves to "these stories of three times nothing, which rhyme badly, which do good" and later adds that "Nothing has ever prevented us from setting to music, those endlessly repeated clichés, romantic feelings" and remarks that his heart "stupidly proposes on the first page of a paper".
