Saturday Night Live Books Gotye

This season of Saturday Night Live has been unusually weighted toward booking emerging artists like Lana Del Rey, Karmin, and One Direction as musical guests, so we suppose it was only a matter of time before the show got to Gotye. The Belgian-Australian artist has found stealth success on the charts with his quirky breakup single "Somebody That I Used to Know," and NBC announced today that he'll grace the SNL stages on April 14, alongside host Josh Brolin. Place your bets: How long before we see Carly Rae or Skrillex up there?
