Tonight’s “Saturday Night Live” will be a good one to watch for fans of the breakout Australian artist Gotye.
Gotye and Kimbra will be making their musical guest debut on SNL tonight, April 14th. Josh Brolin will host.
Kimbra, who adds the female vocals to Gotye’s smash single “Somebody That I Used To Know,” said that she’s excited for performing on SNL this week.
“We’ve had a few rehearsals. It’s really cool to just get a feel of the whole vibe. I’ve heard such great stuff about the experience. It’s gonna be awesome… I think ‘SNL’ is so well-known for its musical performances, as well, and people really breaking into America through a really great performance on there… So I think me and Gotye are both really excited to be amongst such company. You know, it’s great.”
The musical stage will be the end of Kimbra’s exploration into SNL. At least she hopes.
“I hope not. (Doing a sketch) would be fun, but I’m not very funny!”
This will be the first for Gotye to perform on “SNL” but it won’t be the first time that their single, “Somebody That I Used To Know,” has been heard on TV. The song, which has more than 150 million views on Youtube, has been covered by the cast on “Glee,” and has been song on “American Idol” and “The Voice.”
Here’s the video for “Somebody That I Used To Know.”
