Daft Punk to make live comeback at 2017 Grammy Awards Live Stream

To the delight of Sean Spicer, Grammy Awards Live Stream Daft Punk will return to the stage at next month’s Grammy Awards for their first live appearance since 2014.

According to Pitchfork, the French electro robots are set to join The Weeknd to perform their recent chart-topping collaboration, “Starboy”. The track, which appeared on The Weeknd’s latest album of the same name, marked Daft Punk’s first-ever No. 1 single.Daft Punk’s last live appearance came at the 2014 Grammy Awards when they performed “Get Lucky” with Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers, and Stevie Wonder. That year, the robots also won Grammy Awards for Album of the Year (Random Access Memories) and Record of the Year (“Get Lucky”).

Despite their upcoming Grammys appearance, Daft Punk are not expected to tour in 2017, an industry source previously has told Consequence of Sound.This year’s Grammy Awards will take place February 12th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will air live on CBS. Along with Daft Punk and The Weeknd, confirmed performers include Adele, Bruno Mars, John Legend, and Metallica.

Daft Punk will make their live comeback at next month’s Grammy Awards, performing with The Weeknd for their first live appearance since the 2014 Grammys.

The French duo collaborated with The Weeknd on two tracks from the singer’s latest album Starboy, including ‘I Feel It Coming’, although the LP is not up for any awards as it was released after the deadline.At the 2014 Grammy ceremony, Daft Punk were joined by Pharrell, Stevie Wonder, and Nile Rodgers for their performance of ‘Get Lucky’ – remind yourself of it below.

The Grammy ceremony will broadcast live from LA’s Staples Center at 8pm (EST) on February 12 via CBS. A Tribe Called Quest, Anderson .Paak, and Dave Grohl, as well as Alicia Keys and Maren Morris have also been announced as performers.The 2017 Grammy Awards are looking more and more formidable, with a beastly set of names hitting the ticket as live performers.

It’s hard to tell which is the bigger news here, Daft Punk’s return to live music or a massive, mysterious supergroup joining forces for an unknown performance (but we have some ideas).

Daft Punk are to return to the live stage for the first time in three years at next months’ Grammy Awards, with the announcement that they’ll be performing during the ceremony with The Weeknd.The robotic duo teamed up with the Canadian singer for his recently released album Starboy, performing with him on the title track as well as ‘I Feel It Coming’. On Tuesday (January 31st), the Recording Academy announced that they’ll be joining forces again to render those songs live at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on February 12th, alongside other confirmed performers Adele, Bruno Mars and Metallica.

It’ll be the first time that the elusive French duo, consisting of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, have performed live since they played the same ceremony back in 2014, where they shared a stage with Nile Rodgers, Pharrell Williams and Stevie Wonder to play ‘Get Lucky’.

They also won both the Record of the Year prize for the aforementioned smash hit single, and Album of the Year for its parent LP Random Access Memories, released the previous year.

Daft Punk and the Weeknd will perform together at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, the Recording Academy announced today. Daft Punk never toured behind their last album, 2013’s Grammy-dominating Random Access Memories, so this will be Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo’s first live performance since their appearance at the 2014 Grammys. This year’s Grammy ceremony will broadcast live from Los Angeles’ Staples Center at 8 p.m. Eastern on February 12 on CBS.

Daft Punk collaborated with the Weeknd on two tracks from his latest album Starboy: the title track and “I Feel It Coming.”Starboy was released after this year’s Grammy deadline, so the Weeknd is only nominated as a contributor to Beyoncé’s Lemonade. Daft Punk are not up for any awards this year.At the 2014 ceremony, Daft Punk were joined by Pharrell, Stevie Wonder, and Nile Rodgers for their performance. (Current White House press secretary Sean Spicer was not impressed.)

Also announced today for this year’s Grammys are collaborative performances from A Tribe Called Quest, Anderson .Paak, and Dave Grohl, as well as Alicia Keys and Maren Morris. Previously announced performers include Adele, Bruno Mars, Metallica, John Legend, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban. The show will be hosted by James Corden.Read “6 Takeaways From the 2017 Grammy Nominations,” “The Dark Knight Returns: A Conversation With the Weeknd” from 2015, and Pitchfork’s 2013 Cover Story on Daft Punk.
