January 6, 2014

Daft Punk's Random Access Memories
With the Grammy Awards fast approaching on January 26, news is beginning to trickle out about some of the special performances that the Recording Academy has in store. Daft Punk will make their first live performance in support of Random Access Memories, and it will boast a collaboration with Stevie Wonder, sources confirmed to Rolling Stone. Pharrell and Nile Rodgers, who both appear on Daft Punk's latest album, will also join in the performance, along with Random Access Memories session players Chris Caswell, Nathan East, Omar Hakim and Paul Jackson Jr. Daft Punk is up for five awards at this year's show.

Meanwhile, The Eurythmics will reunite for the Grammy television special The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles. The event will be taped at the Los Angeles Convention Center on January 27 and it will air on February 9, exactly 50 years to the day after the Beatles made their U.S. debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will perform as a duo on the show, but producer Ken Ehrlich did not reveal which Beatles tune the British duo will perform, according to Billboard. However, John Mayer and Keith Urban will pair up to perform "Don't Let Me Down," while Alicia Keys and John Legend will perform a duet on "Let It Be." Maroon 5 also will hit the stage.

Other performances at the Grammy Awards will include Imagine Dragons, Kendrick Lamar, P!nk, fun.'s Nate Ruess, and a collaboration between Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard, Blake Shelton and Willie Nelson. As previously reported,
Jay Z leads the pack of nominees this year with nine nods, while Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Pharrell Williams have seven nods each.
