Five years ago Agnes Carlsson (who now simply goes by Agnes) won Idol 2005, the second season of the Swedish Idol series. Now after releasing three albums in Europe, the 22-year-old singer is taking a stab at the U.S. market with her international smash hit “Release Me.” Agnes belted the song out on The Wendy Williams Show yesterday while her two black-clad dancers twirled around her. Check out her performance after the jump.
“Release Me” topped the singles chart in Sweden and reached #3 last spring in the UK. The upbeat jam also topped Billboard‘s Hot Dance Club Play chart here in the U.S. (The song is available for download on iTunes.)
And Wendy sure seemed to dig it above. (At least we think she was showing some emotion beneath that frozen, tight face.) How about you—do you think Agnes will cross over big here in the States?
