Rock chick Agyness makes festival debut with New York band

21 JULY 2008
Strutting out onto the stage in a pair of skinny leather trousers to grab the microphone, Agyness Deyn looked like a natural-born performer. The model-of-the moment was clearly relishing the opportunity to play her first-ever music festival with New York rock band Five O'Clock Heroes.

The platinum-haired beauty entertained 45,000 revellers at the televised T4 On The Beach event with a pitch-perfect version of Who, her collaboration with the rockers, which is released on Wednesday. And if Agyness was feeling any nerves as she stepped into the spotlight at the Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset, music event, it certainly wasn't showing - belting out the track with the stage presence of a true rock chick.

Giving Agyness a confidence boost at the festival - at which she shared the bill with former Destiny's Child Kelly Rowland and girl band Sugababes - was the surprise presence of her musician boyfriend Albert Hammond Jr.

The Strokes guitarist turned up unannounced to surprise his girlfriend of one month as she warmed up for her biggest gig to date. "She gave him a huge hug and asked him for advice on how to play to such a big crowd," said an onlooker.
