Grammy Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich has told Rolling Stone Magazine that French duo Daft Punk have agreed to perform at next year’s awards.
The performance would be the first time the duo have performed since they turned up in 2010 to finish off a Phoenix show at Madison Square garden.
Having been nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album for ‘Random Access Memories’, the duo have also been nominated for Records of the Year and Best Pop Duo performance for their smash hit “Get Lucky.”
Speaking with Rolling Stone, Ehrlich said: “We learned that because they had such a good experience with us when they appeared with Kanye in 2008, they were happy to discuss a performance on this year’s show.”
“Conversations took place over a period of a couple of months, and finally they agreed to be a part of this year’s telecast. Details of the performance are still being worked out, but the idea of having the exclusive television performance by this iconic band is something we’re very, very excited about,” he added.
Obviously a Daft Punk performance will be a massive coup for the Grammy’s, and will obviously fuel rumours that the enigmatic duo might consider a return to live performances after their massively successful Alive tour in 2007.
The Grammy Awards will air live on CBS on January 26, at 8 p.m. EST. Along with Daft Punk, more than a dozen performers will grace the Grammy stage.
