The song was performed eleventh on the night, following Switzerland's Franca Di Rienzo with "Nous aurons demain" and preceding Norway's Nora Brockstedt with "Sommer i Palma". At the close of voting, it had received 1 point, placing 15th in a field of 16 (equal last with Austria's Jimmy Makulis singing "Sehnsucht").
The song is a ballad in which Benny sings about needing to part from his lover in September. He says that the golden rose they have seen blooming will serve as a reminder of their romance.
