Prepare to hear ABBA's 'Dancing Queen' like you've never heard it before ...

America's Got Talent viewers and judges were blown away after Debbii Dawson took to the stage bringing a touch of ABBA-mania with her.

Performing her own rendition of the Swedish supergroup's classic 'Dancing Queen,' the Los Angeles local stripped back the iconic song and with her impressive vocals quickly won over the auditorium.

Rearranging the track as a folk number, Dawson played arpeggios on the acoustic guitar.

The performance was a hit with judges Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell, SofĂ­a Vergara and Heidi Klum.

Simon Cowell gushed over her gutsiness of taking one of the most popular pop songs of all time and literally making it "her own version."

He added: "I'm going to remember this audition. I'm really, really, really happy that you auditioned for this show."

While Howie Mandel said: "You really do have a star quality."

Unsurprisingly, Dawson received four yeses!
