The song was performed eleventh on the night, following Turkey's Seyyal Taner & Grup Lokomotif with "Şarkım Sevgi Üstüne" and preceding the Netherlands' Marcha with "Rechtop in de wind". At the close of voting, it had received 64 points, placing 10th in a field of 22.

The song is directed to a woman who leads a glamorous life. The singer suggests that she should slow down and enjoy life, because otherwise she will miss out on the point of it all.
