Meet the Swedish Dance Diva Being Compared to Leona Lewis, Jennifer Lopez


Lady Gaga too "out there" for your tastes? Love Robyn but hungry for even more dance-pop love from Sweden?

Then meet Agnes, a gorgeous 22-year-old from the small town of Vanersborg, Sweden who just so happened to win the Swedish version of American Idol, put out two albums and is now being compared to Jennifer Lopez, Leona Lewis and Kylie Minogue.

I was lucky enough to meet the stunning, sexy Swede when she made a recent Stateside splash last week performing at New York City's Soho House and Club 57 (where she was introduced by none other than the World's First Supermodel, Janice Dickinson!).

Agnes is now getting ready to take America by storm in a big way with her dance hit "Release Me," which has already reached No. 1 on the iTunes chart in the U.K. and is heating up the clubs here. Her third album will be released in the U.S. this summer.

Wish you had caught her act, too? Then click here to see the Club 57 performance and here to watch the official "Release Me" video. And prepare for a very hot summer, indeed!
