As Cyprus had finished in the top ten in the previous year's Contest, the song was already qualified for the final. It was thus performed ninth on the night (following
Albania's Ledina Çelowith " Tomorrow I Go" and preceding Spain's Son de Solwith " Brujería"). At the close of voting, it had received 46 points, placing 18th in a field of 24 and returning Cyprus to the semi-final at their next Contest appearance.
The song is an up-tempo number, with Christoforou urging his lover to "come baby, come baby".
Christoforou had previously appeared at the 1996 Contest singing "
Mono Yia Mas" solo, as well as taking part as a member of One with "Gimme" at the 2002 Contest.
