The song is a paean to Marlene Dietrich, whom Dussault famously refers to as "a silhouette in Sexyrama" at one point in the lyrics, before comparing her appearance to that of the star and concluding that she will never live up to the standards of her idol.
The song was performed tenth on the night, following Spain's Julio Iglesias with "Gwendolyne" and preceding Germany's Katja Ebstein with "Wunder gibt es immer wieder". At the close of voting, it had received 5 points, placing 8th in a field of 12.
