The song features the metaphor of a bullfight, comparing it either with the autocratic regime in Portugal at the time or with the culture of materialism. The song was performed third on the night, following Belgium's Nicole & Hugo with "Baby, Baby" and preceding Germany's Gitte with "Junger Tag". At the close of voting, it had received 80 points, placing 10th in a field of 17.

It was succeeded as Portuguese representative at the 1974 Contest by Paulo de Carvalho with "E depois do adeus".
