From NPR

After Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" won the Grammy for best pop duo/group performance, he revealed that Kimbra wasn't his first, or even his second, choice for the song. He had already gone through two female singers for the track and was waiting on another vocalist when she "called out." "I built so much expectation with that vocalist that i was feeling a little crushed." he said backstage after collecting the Grammy. It came down to Kimbra to sing on the song that was recorded in her apartment. It was last year's biggest hit. As for the unnamed singer, Gotye said she makes wonderful music own her own and "Shouldn't be mad." So who missed out on a Grammy?
