Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" won Record of the Year at the 2013 Grammy Awards, besting Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," fun.'s "We Are Young," Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)," The Black Keys' "Lonely Boy" and Frank Ocean's "Thinkin' Bout You."
The category celebrates the achievement of the artist as well as the producers, mixers and engineers who worked on the track, unlike Song of the Year, which awards only writers.
"Somebody That I Used to Know" overcame the fact that it was achieved popularity earlier than the likes of Swift's tune to capture the award. Though its Gotye's single hit to date, it's significant for breaking through the hip-hop and dance-dominated Top 40 charts in a major way (and, some way, opening the room for fun.'s nominated single).
Music's Biggest Night seemed to go over well. The Recording Academy -- the group behind the awards -- is comprised of working professionals in the industry, who vote on nominees and winners. While the interests and judgment of the Grammys has often been called into question, taking home a Grammy is still mainstream music's highest honor.
According to the Academy, last year's telecast brought in nearly 40 million viewers -- the largest Grammys TV audience since 1984. A strong 160,341 tweets per minute were also fired off during the show.
The list of 2012 Grammy winners included Kanye West and Adele. The two stars combined for ten awards.

This amalgam of rockers and hip-hop stars perform "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" to honor the late MCA. CBS, however, cuts them off with an rundown of the night's sponsors. Classy.
