Daft Punk to perform at Grammy Awards 2014

Organiser promises "a collaborative and celebratory stage performance" from French duo

Daft Punk will perform at the Grammy Awards next year.

The French duo will perform material from their album ‘Random Access Memories’ live for the first time at the January 26 ceremony, which takes place at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. Daft Punk are nominated for five awards on the night, including the highly coveted Record Of The Year.

Speaking about what will be Daft Punk’s first televised performance since 2008, Grammys Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich tells Rolling Stone that fans can expect “a collaborative and celebratory stage performance that honors their multi-nominated music.” Daft Punk’s last TV performance came at the Grammys in 2008, when they played alongside Kanye West on his song ‘Stronger’.

“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,” Ehrlich adds. “Conversations took place over a period of a couple of months, and finally they agreed to be a part of this year’s telecast.”

Lorde, James Blake, Tame Impala, Disclosure and The National are amongst the artists to receive nominations for the 56th annual Grammy Awards. Click hereto see the full list of nominees.
