Daft Punk has graced both good and bad end of the year lists. But, at the end of the day, we’re all kind of itching to see these guys perform live... at some point.

Finally, after teasing us on the Colbert Report and at the MTV VMAs, Daft Punk is confirmed to be performing their mega-hit “Get Lucky” live at the 2014 Grammy Awards.

This will be the robot duo’s first televised performance since their collaboration with Kanye West at the 2008 Grammy Awards. Their album, Random Access Memories, is up for both Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group.

"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," Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich tells Rolling Stone. "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."
