Adding to their collection of productions and performances with music legends young and old, Daft Punk will be joined on stage by Stevie Wonder, in addition to regulars Nile Rodgers and Pharrell Williams, for their performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards.
As previously reported, The 2014 Grammys will be the first Daft performance in years, and the first time they’ve played live in support of Random Access Memories. Rolling Stone reports that “sources” have confirmed that the legendary American singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder will be stepping onto the stage with disco’s new A-Team for their performance. After the obvious question of how he will fit musically into their show (our money says it’s with his trusty piano) and on which tracks, what we really want to know is this: will he be issued a standard, team-Daft sequined suit? What about a Wonder-helmet, maybe with his iconic shades made futuristic with LEDs and lasers? Maybe? Either way, as the owner of more Grammys than any other male solo artist, he’s a great choice for the show.
In addition to it being their first TV performance since 2008’s with Kanye West, Daft Punk are up for five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Best Dance/Electronica Album for Random Access Memories and Best Pop/Group performance for “Get Lucky.” Watch the performance live Jan. 26 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
