Grammys voters are clearly Daft Punk fans tonight – with the French electronic duo winning Album of the Year and Record of the Year – but perhaps as high an honor is seeing Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, Katy Perry, Beyonce and Jay Z get down to your music.
The performance starts with the familiar beat and guitar of “Get Lucky,” co-written by Rodgers, but once Wonder jumps in, the song takes off into new places. Rodgers” Le Chic hit “Le Freak” and Daft Punk”s classic “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” are both weaved seamlessly into the medley, followed by a rousing solo from Wonder. The vibe is contagious.
Earlier in the day, Daft Punk won for a Best Engineered Album Grammy for “Random Access Memories.”
