Because clips on video sites often disappear or alternative versions get uploaded these links most often aren’t included here, you will find most of them there though. Please note that some people replace the original TV sound with the stereo album versions without giving detailed information about this major and in my opinion silly alteration.
Usually ABBA performances on TV were lip-synched. However, there also are several special and interesting ones. ABBA pre-recorded several special arrangements with or without new vocal tracks for their TV performances and then mimed to them at the actual show, sometimes they also really sung live on stage. Therefore it’s not always easy to tell how much ‘live’ these performances really were.
Performances just mimed to the studio tracks are not included here. On video platforms people often label mimed performances on TV shows as “live” though, but that’s not what I consider ‘live’, there must be some live aspect regarding the music, not just people appearing at a show.
