Last night the BBC launched their “Children In Need” campaign for 2013 with the screening of the “Children In Need Rocks Concert” organised by Take That star Gary Barlow. Today’s media coverage centers around the appearance and performance of Eurovision Legend Agnetha Faltskog.
The ABBA star was one of the big surprise guests at the show. Her first UK live performance in over 25 years and the media and twitter were taken with her humble performance of “I Should Have Followed You Home”.
The inclusion of Agnetha seems to have eclipsed other artists present both young and old, as the media are concentrating on her appearance. Other names presented ranged from Little Mix, The Wanted to Barry Manilow and ELO.
During the broadcast of the show last night Agnetha was trending on Twitter in the UK and Ireland – with the most popular tweet being “#OMG it’s #Agnetha!“. I know we tweeted “#ChildrenInNeed Agnetha Official was #ABBASolutely #FANTASTIC”
The BBC have released the official video of the performance
On the back of their performance – “I Should Have Followed You Home”, downloads of the song have risen in the UK’s “Pop” charts into the Top 40. Again this raises speculation of an ABBA celebration of their 40th Anniversary of winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974.
