While this year's GRAMMY Awards will be missing a few of the music world's biggest artists — Kanye West, Drake, Justin Bieber, and Frank Ocean — Daft Punk will be returning to the award show for their first performance in three years. A Tribe Called Quest and Anderson .Paak will be performing together. And Dave Grohl as well as Alicia Keys are also joining the lineup, which already consists of Adele, Bruno Mars, Metallica, John Legend, Keith Urban, and Carrie Underwood.
Daft Punk hasn't played a live show since the appeared with Stevie Wonder, Pharrell, and Nile Rodgers at the 2014 Grammys. They won Album of the Year that time. This time around the French dance music robots will be pairing up with The Weeknd for a performance of their collaboration, "I Feel It Coming", or possibly "Starboy" — Daft Punk's first ever number one single.
A Tribe Called Quest and Anderson .Paak are presumably pairing up for their We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service collab "Movin' Backwards."
Meanwhile, The GRAMMYs are organising a special celebration of the Bee Gees‘ hugely-influential soundtrack to the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever, which went 15x platinum in the U.S. The soundtrack will be celebrated with a special Grammy-authorised event in LA on February 14th, two days after the 59th GRAMMY Awards, which will air February 12th on CBS.
