Agnes Rocks Out “Release Me” On ‘The Wendy Williams Show’

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?

    I think its wrong to compare Parkers situation to the heroes of the past as the club had complete control in those days and the difference in the level of football between the divisions wasnt so great. Fact is my all time hero Bobby Moore would have gone to Tottenham at his peak had he been allowed to do so and Brooking was sought after by Clough when Derby were at their peak.. chances are they would have gone in todays enviroment and who could have blamed them! Dicanio wanted to go to Man u when they showed an. interest as well. We lost Scott Parker because of the state our club got in to and if it wasnt for his outstanding efforts we would have gone down a season earlier. I think hes up there with the greats but agree legend status goes to those who played for a lot longer. He would have been told to hand in a transfer request by both clubs to ensure we get the maximum from the transfer. If hes ever back at upton park he will get a big cheer from me. Thanks Scott it was a privelage to watch you but as many have said above its time to move on and lets hope we get an exciting arrival to alleviate the dispapointment
