On the night of the final Villa performed 15th in the running order, following Luxembourg and preceding Monaco. The song was a dramatic ballad in the style for which Italy had become known, with Villa giving an impassioned performance. In 1962, a ranking system was introduced into the voting for the first time with each national jury awarding 3-2-1 to its top 3 songs. A by-product of this system which became immediately apparent was that with 15 songs competing for each jury's votes, a majority of songs were likely to score very few points, if any. At the close of the voting "Addio, addio" had received only 3 points (2 from Luxembourg and 1 from Yugoslavia), but this was enough to place Italy a quite respectable-looking 9th of the 16 entries. The Italian jury awarded its 3 points to Yugoslavia.
