Dance music’s most renowned robots are making their return to the stage. The Recording Academy announced today that Daft Punk will join Canadian crooner The Weeknd at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.
Daft Punk recently collaborated with The Weeknd for two tracks on the singer’s third studio album Starboy: The title track and the 18th and final song to appear on the album, “I Feel It Coming.” The first single “Starboy” arrived on September 22, 2016 to critical acclaim, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200.
Both collaborations, however, came after the 2017 Grammy deadline, which means Daft Punk will not be competing for any awards this year. The Parisian duo’s appearance will mark the first since the 2013 Grammys, when they took home several awards for their album Random Access Memories.
Hosted by James Corden, this year’s Grammy ceremony will also feature collaborative performances from A Tribe Called Quest, Anderson .Paak and Dave Grohl, as well as Alicia Keys and Maren Morris. Also performing live are John Legend, Adele, Metallica, Bruno Mars, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.
Don’t miss Daft Punk’s performance with The Weeknd at the 2017 Grammy Awards, which will broadcast live on CBS February 12th at 8 PM EST from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
