The song was performed seventh on the night (following Monaco's Laurent Vaguener with "Notre vie c'est la musique" and preceding Switzerland's Peter, Sue & Marc & Pfuri, Gorps & Kniri with "Trödler Und Co"). At the close of voting, it had received 69 points, placing 8th in a field of 19.
The song is in praise of the philosopher Socrates, who is likened to a "superstar" in the lyrics. Mention is made of his trial and forced suicide, linking the Athenian citizens to Pontius Pilate, as a reference to them doing nothing to prevent his death.
