The ABBA Generation — Left to Right: Sara Lumholdt, Marie Serneholt, Amit Paul, and Dhani Lennevald.

Formed in 1998 by Niklas Berg, the Swedish pop group A-Teens (sometimes stylized as A*Teens) began as an ABBA cover group for the the Teen Pop Revival of the Turn of the Millennium. Like ABBA, the band consisted of two males, Amit and Dhani, and two females, Marie and Sara.

The cover group gimmick only lasted one album, The ABBA Generation. Their follow-up, Teen Spirit, saw the group doing exclusively original material and scored the group's biggest hit, "Bouncing Off The Ceiling (Upside Down)." The group released one more album, Pop 'Till You Drop, in 2002 before disbanding in 2004.

Band members:

  • Marie Eleonor Serneholt: The oldest in the group, born on 11 July, 1983. After the band, she had some success with her solo album, Enjoy the Ride. She has taken part in a variety of TV shows, including for appearances on Melodifestivalen, the Swedish version of The X Factor, and most recently the lottery game show, Bingolotto.
  • Amit Sebastian Paul: The older of the two males, born 29 October, 1983. He was born to an Indian father and a Swedish mother. He has been relatively laying low since the band's days, mainly producing indie music.
  • John Dhani Lennevald: The tallest of the group, was born on 24 July, 1984. Dhani has also been keeping a low profile since the band's days, he's mainly now a music producer.
  • Sara Helena Lumholdt: The youngest and smallest of two females, was born on 25 October, 1984. She was born to a Swedish father and a half-Turkish, half-Filipino mother. When it comes to as far as music, she's been keeping a low profile about it although her song, "First," has been released on iTunes. Apart from music, she has appeared on many programs as well, like co-hosting the after show for The X Factor and became a pole dance instructor.
