One of the most anticipated musical events of the year – Eurovision 2024 – took place in Malmö, Sweden. Inside “Malmo Arena” the audience chose the winner, and before the results were announced, they could hear ABBA's performance.

So, a hologram of the legendary band ABBA appeared on stage, which caused a wave of nostalgia among all those present. The young virtual versions of Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Fried wowed the audience with their modern outfits and energy.

During the performance, the band reminisced about their winning song “Waterloo”, which brought them fame and the title of Eurovision winners 50 years ago. They performed this hit composition, causing thunderous applause and memories of the legendary performance.

Not only ABBA entertained the audience, because Eurovision winners from different years also took to the stage. Among them is the representative of Austria Conchita Würst.

Let us recall that Agneta Feltskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad created the band in Stockholm in 1972. Two years later, the group, which is an acronym for the first letters of their names formed into a palindrome, became Sweden's first Eurovision winner with their hit “Waterloo”.

This year marks the anniversary of their victory, after , as Loreen clinched Sweden's bid to host Eurovision 2024 after winning in Liverpool last year with 'Tattoo', many were crossing their fingers for the band's final performance.

However. Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Frida did not give in to people's wishes. And we were only shown their holograms. But even this was enough to make our hearts beat faster!
