The song is a moderately up-tempo number. Paião sings in praise of "singing in playback", which he explains is in fact miming to pre-recorded music. By doing this, he points out, one does not have to risk singing out of tune or missing notes.
He sang the song with the help of four backup singers, who were dressed in multicolored jumpsuits and acted as robots of sorts, emphasizing the playback theme. From left to right, these singers were Pedro Calvinho, Cristina Águas, Ana Bola, and Peter Peterson.
The song was performed fifteenth on the night (following the United Kingdom's Bucks Fizz with "Making Your Mind Up" and preceding Belgium's Emly Starr with "Samson"). At the close of voting, it had received 9 points, placing 18th in a field of 20.
