As Croatia was not pre-qualified for the final, the song was performed twentieth in the semi-final, following Switzerland's Vanilla Ninja with "Cool Vibes" and preceding Bulgaria's Kaffe with "Lorraine". Here, it received 169 points to place 4th in a field of 25 and qualify for the final.
In the final, it was performed eighteenth, following Germany's Gracia with "Run & Hide" and preceding Greece's Elena Paparizou with "My Number One". At the close of voting, it had received 115 points to finish 11th and require Croatia to qualify through the semi-final again.
The song is a dramatic "Balkan Ballad", with Novković describing the end of a relationship as he realises that "This love was a vision, this is not my time". It is well-remembered for the backing singers' line of "Dunavom, Dunavom" ("Down the Danube, Down the Danube") immediately prior to the key change.
