The following article appeared in Billboard Magazine.

2018 has already been a massive year for a freshly reunited ABBA -- and NBC is getting in on the tributes. On Friday (May 4), the network officially announced an ambitious, star-studded two-hour special dedicated to the legendary Swedish pop group.

The special, which will air in December, promises to pay homage to some of ABBA’s classic songs, with a variety of artists performing hits like “Dancing Queen,” “Mamma Mia,” “The Winner Takes It All” and “Take a Chance On Me.” The news follows the recent announcement that ABBA will debut their first new song in 35 years, performed by a virtual “avatar” version of the band on a massive world tour.
