Stevie Wonder will join Daft Punk onstage at Grammys

Daft Punk will show their faces (kind of) at the Grammys on Jan. 26.
Daft Punk will show their faces (kind of) at the Grammys on Jan. 26.

For a duo who had one of the top albums of the past year, Daft Punk have been keeping a lower profile than even their notoriously disguised public persona would indicate.

Since releasing their hit “Random Access Memories” in May, the helmeted ones haven’t even performed live in front of an audience.

But when you’re nominated for five Grammys, that’s kind of a command performance, especially when one of those nominations is for Album of the Year.

In the grand tradition of unlikely Grammy pairings that actually make a lot of musical sense, Daft Punk will be performing with Motown legend Stevie Wonder, the show’s executive producer Ken Ehrlich told Rolling Stone.

Rolling Stone also reported that Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers will perform with Daft Punk as well, so you can definitely expect to hear a rendition of their mega-hit, “Get Lucky.” But what will Stevie add to the din? “Harder Better Faster Stronger Higher Ground”?
