    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) -- Swedish pop group ABBA's catchy "Waterloo" hit that won the European Song Contest 31 years ago has been voted the best song in the event's history by viewers across the continent.

    The legendary Swedes didn't attend Saturday's jubilee show celebrating 50 years of glamour, glitz and catchy pop tunes.

    Viewers in 31 countries watched the show live from the Danish capital and cast their votes on the 14 entries by telephone and through telephone text messages -- the same way the winner is selected in the regular Eurovision contest.

    The 14 original video recordings -- including many in scratchy black-and-white -- from the annual contests aired during the two-hour show. Some of the past performers appeared on stage at the end of the songs to the cheers.

    The story says that Eurovision is considered to be a showcase of kitsch. Obviously, ABBA was an exception to that.

    I never was much into that style of music, but that blond was HOT in my humble opinion.

    of course, then again, I saw a picture of her recently, which was taken recently, and I was like... Eeeewwww! [​IMG]

    She was cute in her day though... :D

    And do you suppose that you are as cute now as then? I know that I sure am not. One reason to hang on to Mr. Daisy - he knows what I really look like.

    In her DAY?!?!? :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    The woman's not dead yet! Superficial attractiveness never lasts. True beauty is timeless. And I am sure that she has it.

    We were ALL cute as a bug when were SEVENTEEN!! [​IMG]

    Heck, I still am! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Peace-

    Oh I disagree about the blonde, I think she looks more refined and sophisticated.

    Ah, the great Agnetha -v- Anni-Frid debate. I know many blokes who are Frida Fans but for me she always looked like Agnetha's mother

    I'm with MH on the hot ABBA blonde.

    Almost embarrassed to admit now but I still like a lot of their music.
