04/15/2012 by Kristina Lopez

Wouter De Backer, an Australian singer/songwriter better known by his stage name Gotye, made his debut on the "Saturday Night Live" stage on April 14 in an episode hosted by actor Josh Brolin.

Gotye was joined on stage by Kimbra to perform their hit single "Somebody That I Used To Know." The song recently reached No. 2 on the Billboard 100 songs chart on April 11 and was recenctly covered by Elise Testone and Phillip Phillips on "American Idol," Lindsey Pavao on "The Voice," and Darren Criss and Matthew Bomer on "Glee." The music video for the single also has over 158 million views on YouTube.

Gotye also performed a second song off his "Making Mirrors" album called "Eyes Wide Open." Both performances can be seen below. Gotye also made an appearance in the first Digital Short of the night with Taran Killam and Andy Samberg playing fans who might be a little too obsessed with the singer.

Brolin hosted the episode, which marked his second time as host on the comedy series. Brolin is currently promoting his upcoming movie "Men in Black III." The 44-year-old "W" actor last hosted "Saturday Night Live" in 2008, a particularly memorable episode which included cameos by Oliver Stone, Alec Baldwin, Mark Wahlberg and Sarah Palin.

The episode featured a cameo from Steven Spielberg. "Men in Black III" is slated to hit theaters on May 25. In the film, Brolin will portray a young Tommy Lee Jones.
