Best MTV WMA performances ever!
One of the hottest breakthrough artists nominated at tomorrow’s 2012 MTV Video Music Awards (8/7 c), Australian-born Gotye is riding a cool wave of success.

His chart topping hit Somebody that I Used to Know hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became an international sensation.  Gotye is only the sixth Australian to ever reach the top of that chart.

The eclectic and creative artist, who sees himself “as more of a tinkerer than a musician” released three albums and multiple remixes before Somebody made him a household name among smart music fans.

Have you seen Gotye’s breakout video for Somebody that I Used to Know?

Gotye is nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards, including Video of the Year and Best Editing – both for Somebody that I Used to Know, featuring Kimbra.

To find out if Gotye or more of your favorites win, don’t miss the 2012 Video Music Awards, with performances by Swift, One Direction, RihannaP!nkAlicia Keys, Green Day, and more. The MTV Video Music Awards, hosted by Kevin Hart, will air live  tomorrow at 8/7 c, only on MTV.
