Darci Lynne Hit Spellbinding High Notes Singing ABBA's "The Winner Takes It All"

The Swedish supergroup gave us so many hits, and Darci Lynne did them justice here! 

By Elizabeth Logan

As the champion of America's Got Talent Season 12, singer-ventriloquist Darci Lynne knows from experience: The winner takes it all. That's also the name of the ABBA song she sang in her latest video, once again demonstrating that she has a phenomenal voice, no puppet required. Accompanying herself on piano, Lynne sang a stripped-down version of arguably the Swedish pop supergroup's saddest song. She also wore a T-shirt repping fellow singer Noah Kahan. Check it out below.

About "The Winner Takes It All" by ABBA

"ABBA truly gave us a gift with this song!!!😭🤌🏻🥹" wrote Lynne on Instagram, and it's true. The song was written in 1980 by band members Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and although the lyrics were inspired by the melody rather than lyricist Ulvaeus's personal life, the band admits that it's reflective of the fact that both of the couples in the band had recently split. “The lyrics are deeply personal, and the music is unsurpassed. Singing it was like acting a part. I mustn’t let my feelings take over. It was quite a while afterwards before I realised that we’d made a small masterpiece," singer Agnetha Fältskog said of the song, per ABBA's official site.
