Watch Gotye Make His U.S. Television Debut

Wally De Backer is a Belgian-born Australian better known as Gotye (“go-tea-yay,” for those of you who still aren’t sure) who has been around for a few years already, but with the success of the heartbreaking “Somebody That I Used To Know” (featuring Kimbra) and its mesmerizing geometric music video the musician has catapulted into international superstardom.

Last night Gotye, with the help of Kimbra, made his U.S. television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live in front of hundreds of screaming fans. Even though he hasn’t been that big of a name in the country yet, he was still able to command the attention of his adoring fans without so much as swaying back and forth.

Watch Gotye and Kimbra perform “Somebody That I Used To Know” below.
