The song was performed third on the night, following Denmark's Ulla Pia with "Stop - mens legen er go'" and preceding Luxembourg's Michèle Torr with "Ce soir je t'attendais". At the close of voting, it had received 14 points, placing 4th in a field of 18.
The song deals with the singer's quest to impress the object of her affections, whom she sees every day but can't make look at her twice. In desperation, she enlists the help of "the local sorceress", who gives her a recipe to create a love potion. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the potion does its job. Tonia also recorded the song in Dutch, then under the title "Een beetje suiker" ("A Little Sugar").
