Newsletter: ABBA, The Museum Written by on October 26, 2015 | 2 Comments

Welcome to another edition of the ESC Insight Newsletter with all the latest happenings in the circus that is Eurovision. Read this edition in full on this link.

Inside there is lots of updates as we get ready for Sofia’s hosting of Junior Eurovision and plenty of drama from its bigger brother Contest as well. In Robertson’s Reflection this week, the column from Editor Ben Robertson, we have a review of Stockholm’s premier Eurovision attraction. No, not the lift above Globen, but the ABBA Museum. Here is a snippet for you.

Of course the Eurovision room, charting the success of Waterloo and it’s immediate impact on Europe, is a must-see. The costumes are striking, as is the signed guitar from the Brighton performance, but it’s the little details that will make it worthwhile. The newspaper cuttings from across the continent, the diary from the band recorded in that crazy week and the aftermath of appearances hopping between capital cities on a daily basis as ABBAmania begun. Eurovision fans should eeek out every last drop of information here, these are the happy times and there is plenty of trivia about this era of ABBA well documented.

    What is wrong with Muzzart? It was a better song than Time. I do agree that Milki was better than both and should have gone to Vienna instead.

  2. Nothing wrong with it and arguably was better than ‘Time’ – however certainly a lot more frivolous than Uzari’s entry.

    What is more damaging is that low televote number, and Muzzart achieved that with adverts during the selection show. We saw the controversy in Moldova last year and I wouldn’t wish that on Belarus as they try and make their selection credible.
