Edin-Ådahl won the contest, beating 1983 representative Carola Häggkvist to second place. Their song, written by Mikael Wendt, was "Som en vind" (Like A Wind).

At the contest Sweden performed 18th, following Republic of Ireland and preceding Italy. At the close of the voting they had received 24 points, being placed 16th of 22 countries competing.
