The electro duo will play at the awards and no doubt win a few too!
Daft Punk's infectious disco jam 'Get Lucky' may have woven its way into our memories of summer 2013 but winter may see the French electronic duo rewarded for their incredible latest album with one of the highest musical accolades: a Grammy.
The 2014 Grammy Awards Will Be Dominated By Daft Punk.
The prestigious annual ceremony will be held in January and aired live on television. As well as a dazzling evening of the world's biggest acts being awarded for what's been a pretty good year for music, Daft Punk have been confirmed as the evening's live musical entertainment, according to Rolling Stone.
Daft Punk agreeing to perform is a pretty huge deal as those familiar with the band will know a tour or even a one-off gig is a precious rarity these days. What's more, the pair hasn't even appeared performing on television for six years. The last time one of their shows was televised was in 2008 when they played at the awards accompanied by rapper Kanye West.
The Duo Are Famed For Their Spectacular Live Shows.
After Daft Punk's latest album, Random Access Memories, broke Spotify's streaming records and garnered a mountain of solid critical praise this year, the record has been nominated for Album of the Year, Best Dance/Electronica Album and Record of the Year and the duo are up for Best Pop Duo/Group performance for their Pharrell and Nile Rodgers-collaborating song, 'Get Lucky.'

Kevin Ehrlich, the awards' executive producer, said that he is hoping that Daft Punk's performance will be as spectacular and successful as 2008s. He revealed that "a collaborative and celebratory stage performance that honours their multi-nominated music" was on the map for the evening.
Daft Punk will be joined by other, yet to be announced artists to collectively ensure that the 2014 Grammys goes off with a bang. The Grammy Awards will air live on American network CBS on the 26th January 2014.
