Daft Punk to Perform At Grammy Awards
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.19.2013
Rolling Stone reports that Daft Punk will perform at the 2014 Grammy Awards, their first appearance since 2008 with Kanye West. They are up for four awards: Album of the Year and Best Dance/Electronica Album for Random Access Memories and Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group performance for "Get Lucky".
Executive producer Ken Ehrlich said: "We learned that because they had such a good experience with us when they appeared with Kanye in 2008, they were happy to discuss a performance on this year's show. Conversations took place over a period of a couple of months, and finally they agreed to be a part of this year's telecast. Details of the performance are still being worked out, but the idea of having the exclusive television performance by this iconic band is something we're very, very excited about."
Ehrlich added the show will deliver "a collaborative and celebratory stage performance that honors their multi-nominated music."
The band have previously played no shows to support their hit album. The Grammy Awards are live on CBS on January 26, 2014 at 8 PM ET. Daft Punk are the latest in a lineup that includes over a dozen performers.
