I think a lot of gotye's 'success' also came from word of mouth, I think everyone loved his song and just sent them to others and it spread like fire.. I heard even Katy perry tweeted the video to millions of followers.. Which is massive exposure! But then again, it'll probably be just that one song which is successful- the rest of them have been medicre in aus charts but that's off the point. I think this is why he was invited to go on all those big name shows.. I don't think they let any wannabe singer go on tv.
Yeah it takes a lot of hard work to succeed in the US but then u see people becoming famous nearly overnight like Carly Rae jepsen.. Etc from a simple tweet. If only delta could feature in a video that happen to go viral.. Lol
