Nickname: "Still The One"

Logo:

  • Opening: On a black background, sparkles come down from the top-right to the bottom-left of the screen. After they almost disappear, the ABC logo, with the font in gold and the circle styled like a bubble, zooms in while sparkling.
  • Closing: The same animation from the opening plays, minus the sparkles coming down, but after it's done zooming in, the sparkles come down again and the ABC logo glows and shines while the words "STILL THE ONE!" zooms down right beside the ABC logo. The camera then zooms closer to the ABC logo and the entire thing cuts to black.

Variants:

  • A version was made for Nine in Australia. In this version, the Nine logo replaces the ABC logo.
  • An alternate version was also made for Nine in Australia in which the network's "nine dots" logo replaces the Nine logo. After it's done zooming in, the bubble glows and shines and the "nine dots" logo fades into the Nine logo. The ball's glow fades away and the Nine logo fades back into the "nine dots" logo.
  • A still version was also made in which the logo is slightly larger, doesn't shine and is a littler darker. This variant was used for closed-circuit broadcasts.
