Daft Punk to take the stage with Stevie Wonder at the Grammys

By Marie Blake,

Daft Punk is scheduled to perform with the legendary Stevie Wonder at this year's Grammys.

Sources told Rolling Stone that their first live performance for their album Random Access Memories will take place at the Grammys with Wonder.

Pharrell and Nile Rodgers, who make appearances on the album, will also perform with the band.

Apart from performing, Daft Punk is also up for five Grammy awards including Album of the Year and Best Dance/Electronica Album, and Best Pop/Group performance and Record of the Year for "Get Lucky."

The last televised performance of Daft Punk was at the 2008 Grammy Awards alongside Kanye West for their hit "Stronger."

"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," Ken Ehrlich, Grammy executive producer, told Rolling Stone in December.

As previously reported last month, other artists scheduled to perform at the ceremony include Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons, P!nk and Nate Ruess; and a special performance featuring Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Blake Shelton.

The 2014 Grammy Awards will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and will air on CBS, live on Jan. 26.
