Publicity-shy French electronic duo Daft Punk haven't exactly been promotional machines when it comes to Random Access Memories, their first album in eight years. But for their first live performance in support of the album, Les Robots will perform at the upcoming Grammy Awards with Stevie Wonder and "Get Lucky" collaborators Pharrell and Nile Rodgers, according to Rolling Stone.

There's no word yet on exactly what Stevie will do with the group, who's up for five awards, including Album of the Year, Best Dance/Electronica Album and Best Pop/Group performance. But the show's executive producer Ken Ehrlich told the magazine that it will be "a collaborative and celebratory stage performance that honors [Daft Punk's] multi-nominated music."

Pharrell, who earned seven nominations himself, recently told Fuse News, "It's also the people who reacted and responded to the songs when they didn't have to," said the singer/producer. "The people who bought, requested, streamed, voted and shared those songs with their friends share a portion of the acknowledgements. Am i proud of those seven nominations, yes? But I share them with you."

Daft Punk's appearance will be the group's first televised performance since playing with Kanye West at the 2008 Grammy Awards. This year's Grammys can be seen on January 26 at 8 pm.
