The Grammys are set to dominate Twitter timelines in three weeks and with Rolling Stone’s announcement, perhaps the show’s most anticipated performance is already set in stone.
Famed musical recluses Daft Punk will be sharing the stage with Stevie Wonder for a set that’s also said to feature Pharrell and Nile Rodgers. In other words, a pretty f*ckin’ big deal. The moment marks the first live performance from the duo since releasing their critically-acclaimed (no, really, it’s critically acclaimed) Random Access Memories last year.
In addition to being the duo’s first live gig since their album’s release, the awards show also marks their first televised performance since they played with Kanye West at the 2008 Grammys. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the show’s executive producer Ken Ehrlich promised “a collaborative and celebratory stage performance that honors [Daft Punk's] multi-nominated music.”
Airing January 26 on CBS, other live performers are noted to be Kendrick Lamar with Imagine Dragons and Pink with fun.
