He co-wrote some of ABBA's greatest hits like "Mamma Mia" and "Waterloo." Benny Andersson also went on to make films and run a hotel. Now, the Swede of many talents is turning 70.
Founded by ABBA's manager, the Polar Prize goes to Italian opera singer and anti-diva Cecilia Bartoli, a true all-rounder in the music world. Katy Perry composer Max Martin takes home the pop award.
The Charlemagne Medal pays tribute to media work that promotes European identity. This year's accolade, awarded on April 28, went to the popular Eurovision Song Contest, the world's largest non-sporting live TV event.
