Robyn sang a sorrowful, stripped down version of both “Dancing On My Own” and “Hang With Me” on German talk show SAT1 Frühstücksfernsehen (please don’t make us say that one out loud), and it’s these subtle, sensitive performances that make us wish the Swedish singer was a more present force on the mainstream pop landscape in the U.S. Hopefully her upcoming Gossip Girl cameo will drum up some more buzz for her trio of Body Talk albums. Watch Robyn masterfully sing live on German TV below.

Meanwhile, Robyn tweeted a photo of her on the set of Gossip Girl — we can’t wait! If there’s any justice in the world, she’ll get more screen time than she did at the VMAs. (That is to say, more than 35 measly seconds. Ugh. MTV! We’re shakin’ our fists at you!)
Robyn will be joining an impressive list of pop stars who have performed on the show—Cyndi Lauper, Lady Gaga and No Doubt have all had cameos on the CW drama. What do you expect from a TV show that has two (somewhat) respected musicians as part of its main cast?
