Loreen entered the song at the Melodifestivalen 2012 at the Globen Arena where she performed it during the first round of the competition. She automatically advanced to the final after it was among the top 2 song entries that received the highest votes. On 10 March, during the finals, she performed the song once more while being judged by 11 international juries and voted by the Swedish people's televote. These were then combined for a final result. She eventually finished in 1st place and won the right to represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 after receiving the highest points from both the international juries and the televoting, or a grand total of 268 points. It was reported that a record figure of more than 670,000 of the four million viewers called in to vote for her song.
Sweden was drawn to compete 11th at the second semi-finals on 24 May. The song eventually advanced into the finals and was drawn to perform 17th in the line-up. At the grand final, held on May 26, the song eventually placed first with a total of 372 points, just fifteen points shy of the all-time record of 387, which is held by 2009 winner Alexander Rybak with the song "Fairytale". Additionally, it broke the record for having received the most 12 points awarded by 18 other participating countries under the current voting rules of the Eurovision Song Contest. In total, Sweden received points from 40 of the voting 42 countries excluding itself. The only country that did not award any points was Italy.
Che punto distintivo quest'ultimo eh? L'Italia non è fatta per l'Eurovision!
