It was performed 5th in the semifinal following Belarus and preceding Georgia. At the close of voting, it finished in 13th place with 77 points, missing the final.

Lyrics

I'll let the music play while love lies softly bleeding
In heavy hands on shadowlands
As thunderclouds roll in, sunset is receding
No summer wine, no Valentine
 
A tiger trapped inside a cage
An actor on an empty stage
Come see the show
Rock ‘n' roll can heal your soul
When broken hearts lose all control
 
Some rivers still run dry and jungles burn to embers
Gold autumn days must fade to grey
There is a reason why a haunted man remembers
One frozen night, his darkest day
 
A tiger trapped inside a cage
An actor on an empty stage
Come see the show
Rock ‘n' roll will heal your soul
When broken hearts lose all control
 
A passion killed by acid rain
A rollercoaster in my brain
But how would you know?
In your satin, silk and lace
Another time, another place
 
A tiger trapped inside a cage
An actor on an empty stage
Come see the show
Rock ‘n' roll will heal your soul
When broken hearts lose all control
 
A love let loose and painted black
A train stuck on a broken track
Well, I'll let it go
Rock ‘n' roll has healed my soul
The stage is set, on with the show
