Lorde, Robin Thicke to perform at ‘Grammy Awards’
She may have left concert-goers in New Zealand miffed that she’d no longer be performing at Auckland’s Laneway Festival in January, but Lorde is set to delight fans the world over when she takes the stage to perform at this year’s ‘Grammy Awards’ instead.
The Grammys performance will be Daft Punk’s first live appearance in support of their smash hit album ‘Random Access Memories’ and the duo is up for five awards including Album of the Year, Best Dance / Electronica Album and Best Pop / 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,” said executive producer Ken Ehrlich about adding Daft Punk to the lineup.
“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 has also clocked up an impressive four nominations including Song of the Year and Record of the Year – where she will compete against Robin Thicke, who has nabbed three nods.
The ‘56th Annual Grammy Awards’ take place on January 26 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
