The next potential 'Celebrity Jeopardy' champion has been located. Gotye, the chart-topping singer who performed on 'Saturday Night Live' and at Coachella last weekend, humbly showed up to a pub trivia night in San Francisco on Monday and destroyed the competition.
Bad news, Gotye fans. Sunday night's (April 15) scheduled webcast of the artist's Coachella 2012 performance didn't end up happening after all. Apparently there were some technical problems that couldn't be resolved, and thus only people actually in attendance got to experience the current golden boy of the music industry's highly-anticipated concert. Gotye was scheduled to hit the Mojave stage at
Hits don’t get much bigger than Gotye’s international crossover smash ‘Somebody I Used to Know,’ an enchanting groove of a tune that deftly manages to turn the mixed emotions of a relationship gone sour into the most subtle of anthems.

Gotye has donated a song to the Australian charity compilation 'Tunes for Change.' The collection will also feature tracks from New Zealand singer-songwriter Ladyhawke, Australian musician Washington, Seeker Lover Keeper and more.
Gotye, whose song 'Somebody That I Used to Know (feat. Kimbra)' is currently No. 5 on Billboard's Hot 100, will be appearing on that perpetual proving ground for acts in America, NBC's 'Saturday Night Live.' The network announced today (March 20) that the Australian singer/multi-instrumentalist will appear on the April 14 episode of the late-night show, which will be hosted by actor Josh Brolin.
While this probably doesn't come as a surprise to avid Gotye listeners, the singer-songwriter (real name Wally de Backer) says he has no plans to release new music any time soon. The Aussie recently spoke to Gigwise about how he is no rush to complete a follow-up to his 2011 release 'Making Mirrors,' which features his hit single 'Somebody That I Used to Know' with Kimbra.
