With only a few weeks left until the Grammy Awards air, several more high-profile acts have been added to the roster. Grammy nominees Lorde and Robin Thicke will hit the stage when the show goes live on January 26. Additionally, it was confirmed that previously announced performers Daft Punk will perform with Stevie Wonder, Pharrell and Nile Rodgers.
The Daft Punk confirmation comes just days after it was reported by Rolling Stone. Pharrell and Nile Rodgers both worked with the robots on their Grammy-nominated 2013 album release Random Access Memories. Daft Punk are up for four nods at the big show, including Album Of The Year and Best Dance/Electronica Album for Random Access Memories and Record Of The Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Get Lucky."
"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," executive producer Ken Ehrlich shared last month about adding Daft Punk to the Grammy line-up. "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."
Lorde is also up for four trophies, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Thicke snagged three nominations, including Record of the Year.
It was also announced that rock legends Metallica will take the stage with pianist Lang Lang. They all join Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons, Pink and Fun.'s Nate Ruess who will collaborate together on their single "Just Give Me A Reason."
The 56th Annual Grammy Awards will go live on CBS on Sunday, January 26, 2014, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The show will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
