Two of Australia's biggest recording artists come together on the popular late night show.
Gotye treated the studio audience at the New York City taping of The Late Show With David Letterman to a full set when he was in the Ed Sullivan Theatre on Monday afternoon, Australian time, but it was his hit Somebody That I Used To Know that was the most interesting, thanks to a very special guest appearance.
Gotye performed the smash hit song - which was a number one hit in the USA for eight consecutive weeks - with his band up until the female verse (which is usually sung by Kimbra) kicked in; it was at that point that one of Australia's favourite singer-songwriters Missy Higgins emerged from backstage to take on the verse.

The episode was shown Monday night, US time, with the full hour-long performance streamed on the Live On Letterman website, which is unfortunately geoblocked for Australian audiences.
