In 1974, an unknown group from Sweden, named ABBA, took the stage of the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton, and won the contest with Waterloo.

As a lead to the Eurovision Song Contest’s 50th anniversary in 2005, the EBU will produce a two hour show in 2004, which will feature Swedish and international stars who will perform some of the group’s repertoire, as well as documentry and archive footage that will tell the group’s story.

Birgitta’s popularity continues to
7, held its annual Listeners’ Award ceremony last night, where Birgitta Haukdal (pictured) was rewarded seven out of eight possible awards. Birgitta Haukdal, the Icelandic participant for the Eurovision Song Contest 2003, along with her band ?raf?r, was nominated for no less than eight awards at last night’s ceremony, including female artist of the year, most popular band of the year, song of the year and sexiest pop artist of the year. It was no surprise what so ever, that Birgitta picked up seven out of the eight awards she had been nominated for. To most people’s dissapoinment, the one and only award she did not pick up was best live act. Birgitta and her band were thrilled with the results.

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Reviews | Appleton fail to find musical…BBC News
This remarkably upbeat song with its infectiously stilted beat sees the girls making a sophisticated pop anthem. But Appleton have decided they have a penchant for heartfelt ballads – All Grown Up, 5am and Anyone fall into this dreary stable, although their smooth vocals are more than up to the task. Perky pop ditty

Ring-A-Ding-Ding clocks in at well over six minutes, but is disappointingly not an ode to Eurovision. Its subtle strings and pseudo-Eastern feel makes it a more probable candidate for a film theme. The ghost of All Saints’ brand of slick urban-tinged pop comes back to haunt us on MWA, where the Appletons return to their fast-talking, combat pants-clad past. Yet in another shift of gear, Nicole and Natalie turn in a performance to beat Atomic Kitten at their own game on Waiting For True Love – a perky pop ditty blessed with girl band credentials. Final offering Blow My Mind kicks off with that All Saints whiff, but flourishes into a gutsy chorus with rock orchestra backing – another strong offering.

Michael Ball stays on songBBC News
In 1987 Michael began his association with Andrew Lloyd Webber when he joined the cast of The Phantom of the Opera taking over the part of Raoul from Steve Barton. This was soon followed by a part in the hit musical Aspects of Love. Not satisfied with roles on the stage, Michael appeared in several television programmes and films and in 1992 was the British entry in the Eurovision Song Contest. He came second with his song One Step Out of Time which was seen by a television audience of 600 million people. Since then he’s found the time to record a single for charity and a number of albums, but in 2001 returned to the theatre in the musical Alone Together at the Donmar Warehouse. After releasing an album of songs from musical shows towards the end of 2001, it was announced that he would be starring as Caractacus Potts in the stage version of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang which opened in April 2002.
