Gotye + Kimbra Win “Record of the Year” (Acceptance Speech Video + Music Video)

Gotye01

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards have wrapped up and, as predicted, Australia’s own Gotye was a big winner. During the pre-telecast awards, Gotye took out Best Alternative Album for Making Mirrors and Best Pop Performance Duo with Kimbra for Somebody That I Used To Know.

Later in the evening, Prince turned up looking like a sinister pimp with a sweet-ass cane to present Gotye and Kimbra with Record Of The Year. That makes Gotye the first Australian to take the award since Olivia Newton-John with I Honestly Love You in 1975, and the first Aussie male ever to receive the accolade. Sportsbet proved right on the money, listing Gotye as the odds-on favourite. Below is the music video for the winning track and right under that is the video of the duo accepting the award!

Psy seemed to be very happy for the massive hit of “Gangnam Style” and its impact on the music scene, by kissing his winning award for the cameras! He has also announced whilst in France that his debut album will be set around a March 2013 release worldwide. Gaining the success of “Gangnam Style” and the manager of Scooter Braun, who is also the manager of another sensational hit star Justin Bieber, we are bound to see Psy again in the near future.   See the event at the MTV EMA’s website here for any other information about the Award show.
