French duo Daft Punk won 5 Grammys at last night’s 56th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, the duo picked up awards for ‘Best Engineered Album’, ‘Record of the Year’, ‘Album of the Year’, ‘Best Pop Duo/Group Performance’ and ‘Best Dance/Electronic Album’.
As expected, the Robots didn’t say a word during their several acceptance speeches, instead leaving the thank yous to Paul Williams: “Back when I was drinking, I would imagine things that weren’t there and I’d get frightened. Then I got sober and two robots called and asked me to make an album,” Williams joked.
Williams wrote the lyrics for ‘Touch’ and ‘Beyond’ on ‘Random Access Memories’ and sang lead vocals on ‘Touch’.
As well as a raft of awards Daft Punk performed on TV for the first time in 6 years alongside ‘RAM‘ collaborators Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers, Omar Hakim and special guest Stevie Wonder.
Daft Punk’s stage production recreated New York’s Electric Lady recording studio where some of ‘RAM‘ was recorded. At the halfway mark, Stevie Wonder raised his hand for a sliding door to then reveal Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter dressed head-to-toe in white jump suits and new white versions of their famous helmets.
