Gotye v Kimbra in APRA music awards

After collaborating on the global hit Somebody That I Used to Know, artists Gotye and Kimbra will vie for song of the year at the 30th annual APRA Music Awards.

Gotye's song of love and neglect is currently number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US. It topped Triple J's Hottest 100 and won ARIA awards for song of the year and best video.

New Zealand singer, Kimbra, who contributed vocals on the Gotye track, has been nominated for her own single Cameo Lover.

The film clip for Gotye's mega hit has been viewed more than 188 million times on YouTube, making it the hot favourite to take the award.

Rising bluegrass star Lanie Lane leads the nominations with four nods, including entries in the Blues & Roots Work of the Year.
