Daft Punk Surprise Grammy Appearance- Their First Ever Television Performance

The iconic and critically acclaimed French duo Daft Punk made a surprise appearance at the 50th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles Sunday night. For their first ever television performance, they teamed up with Kanye West to perform his 2007 smash hit "Stronger", which samples the group's 2001 single "Harder Better Faster Stronger" from their landmark album Discovery. For the Grammy Awards, Daft Punk and Kanye West performed an original version of "Stronger" they created specifically for this event, marking Daft Punk's only television performance in the 14 year history of the band.

2007 found Daft Punk more relevant than ever - both critically and commercially. The duo redefined the scope of their career through a mind-blowing live show that toured internationally, followed by the theatrical release of their directorial film debut Daft Punk's Electroma, and the release of their live album Alive 2007- all to overwhelming accolades from fans and critics alike. The year culminated into a cover shared with Kanye West for SPIN magazine.
