Since winning Eurovision back in 1974, ABBA went on to become Sweden's top pop export. When hosting the contest in 2000, SVT tried to coax the fab foursome into getting involved in the project, without avail. This year however, SVT have managed to secure the help of none other than Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson.
Christmas is getting closer, and with preparations for next year's Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö in full swing, there is one Christmas present both SVT and many of us had hoped to find under our tree - the news that ABBA would be reunited on stage for one last time at next year's contest.
News of an exciting recording collaboration in Sweden comes as an early Christmas present for fans of both Melodifestivalen and the Eurovision Song Contest, as the duet is made up of none other than contest veteran Tommy Körberg and hot property Danny Saucedo.
A few days ago three of the four ABBA members turned up for the premiere held in London. Friday evening it was Stockholm’s turn and this time Agnetha Fältskog made ABBA complete by her appearance. It was the first time in 22 years that they were all seen together in public.
Monday evening the film version of Mamma Mia was premiered on Leicester Square in London. Three out of the four ABBA stars turned up, only Agnetha Fältskog didn’t show up for the premiere of the film that features Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan.
