Yoshiki’s Golden Globe Cameo

January 14, 2013

International music star Yoshiki made his network TV debut last night at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. You can see him hand Mychael Danna his award for the Life of Pi score halfway through the video. Speaking of scores, Yoshiki composed the musical theme of this year’s show. You can hear a clip of the song here and purchase the single for charity at iTunes.

What was your favorite moment of the Golden Globes? Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are classy ladies.
