Gotye is Having a TV Moment with Covers on ‘The Voice,’ ‘Glee,’ and ‘Idol’

Gotye is having a moment. The Australian singer-songwriter’s break-up anthem “Somebody That I Used to Know” (feat. Kimbra) has already garnered 154 million + views on Youtube, and in the past week alone has been covered on “The Voice,” “Glee,” and “American Idol.” Even Steven Tyler is obsessed with the tune, saying it’s been playing on a constant loop on his iPhone. “That’s all over the world right now — that song’s changing music,” Tyler told Elise Testone and Phillip Phillips after their Gotye duet on Wednesday’s episode of “Idol.” “So good for you for picking that.”  To top it off, this weekend, Gotye and Kimbra are the musical guests on “SNL.” In honor of the recent Gotye mania, check out all the various covers of “Somebody That I Used to Know” below and decide which one is your favorite.
