Gary Barlow is desperate to duet with ABBA star Agnetha Fältskog and begs her to let him join her on stage during an upcoming BBC One documentary, 'Abba and After'

Gary Barlow is desperate to duet with Agnetha Fältskog.

After co-writing a track for the ABBA star's comeback album, 'A', released last month, the Take That frontman has begged the Swedish star to let him join her on stage in the future.

Speaking to Agnetha on a new BBC One documentary 'Abba and After', which airs next Tuesday (11.06.13), the 42-year-old singer says: "One thing I'm really intrigued with is that how from today can I talk you into - and this may be a long thing, not to be decided today, maybe over the next few months - I would love, love the opportunity to do this track live.

"I'm prepared for no but I would love you to keep the door open. I think it would be unbelievable to see you sing live by yourself but I can take the credit with you."

Despite Gary's enthusiasm, Agnetha - who has spoken openly about stage fright in the past - remains reluctant to accept his plea.

She replies: "Can I say I will think it over? It isn't my strongest point."

It isn't just stage fright that Agentha, 63, has been forced to overcome, as she previously admitted she needed to brush up on her vocals with singing lessons before recording her latest record.

She said: "I could feel that I had lost some energy in my voice and you get easily tired. But everywhere it sounded good. It got better and better. I took some singing lessons too. That was mainly because I felt rusty. It was easy to get into it again."

Well she no longer has a good voice! Her new album is lazy and she only just manages to sing in tune! It would be a disaster if she attempted to sing live again!
She has only jumped on the band wagon of using Gary Barlow as a song written and duet partner, and she couldn't even be bothered to record the duet with him, but instead selfishly stay in Sweden and recorded it seperately.

Agnetha does nothing for her fans or ever will! Very sad! :-(

I would really disagree with the comment concerning Agnetha's voice not being good!! She can sing make no question of that. The vocals on this album are her best as far as I'm concern. If she has said singing live is not her strongest asset so what! Lets just be thankful
She made a new album and did promotion here
In the UK. I think it would be great if 'I should've Followed You Home' was released as a single with a good Video of both Gary Barlow and Agnetha singing together.
