Wow Daft Punk just did some serious damage at the 56th Annual Grammys, taking home all 5 awards they were nominated for. The most earth shattering of them all was taking home the most prestegious award of the entire ceremony, Album of the Year for their album Random Access Memories; as well as Best Dance / Electronica Album, Best Engineered Album, Record Of The Year and Best Pop Duo / Group Performance for their single with Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers , "Get Lucky". This is a landmark statement for electronic music overall as it is the first ever electronic / dance album in the Grammys history to get both nominated and win best album overall.
The producer / DJ duo also made their triumphant return to the stage with their first performance in years on TV worldwide as they took to the stage with assistance from Pharrell (Wearing an oversized hat that stirred up Twitter "Beef" with Arby's), Nile Rodgers and even brought out musical legend Stevie Wonder for an energetic performance that had a audience full of celebrities rocking out. We can hope this means we can expect some Daft Punk live shows possibly by the end of the year? Maybe 2015? At least this restores faith that the French dream team still have an interest in playing more live shows in the future.
