Abba singer Agnetha Faltskog has admitted that despite selling over 370 million albums and scoring nine number one singles during their decade long run that she doesn't think the 'Waterloo' band "sounded or looked very good" live.

The 63-year-old also claimed that she regretted the groups “lack of choreography” explaining that herself and fellow singer Frida Lynstad never consulted each other before going on stage about what the pair were going to do claiming instead the girls would act on their “feelings, so when we had concerts it was different every night.”

In an interview with the Daily Mail, the Swedish legend revealed: “Performing live is not my favourite. I am more of a recording person; I prefer to be private.

“Walking on stage in concert and singing live, that is a bit difficult. And I don't think we sounded or looked very good.”

However, Agnetha did go on to praise the band's infamously lavish, camp costumes which captured the imagination of the world who fell in love with the band as they became one of the biggest artists in the world throughout the seventies.

The Abba star is promoting her new album 'A' which is released next week featuring the recent singles 'When You really Loved Someone' and a duet with Take That star Gary Barlow called 'I Should Have Followed You Home'. The album will mark the singers first collection of original material since 1987.
