Gotye has launched his Australian tour today with a bang as news breaks that he's scooped three Grammy nominations; Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (for Somebody I Used To Know feat. Kimbra), and Best Alternative Music Album (for Making Mirrors). Gotye is the first Australian artist to be nominated for Record of the Year since Olivia Newton-John won the famous statue way back in 1975.
The winners of the Grammys will be announced in Los Angeles on February 11 (Australian time).
Wally says: "I'm not from Western Australia, so a nomination for a WAMI remains a distant dream. But three Grammy nominations are pretty good too. Truly though, it's an honour to be recognised and nominated amongst so many great musicians."
Celebrations will take place live on stage tonight in Adelaide where Gotye is doing the first of four very special homecoming shows which will be his final live appearances in this most memorable of years.
