Daft Punk never showed up to 'Colbert Report'

Daft Punk did not show up to the Tuesday, August 6 taping of "The Colbert Report."

Daft Punk never showed up to ‘Colbert Report’


It’s been officially confirmed that Daft Punk will make a scarce appearance on television for Tuesday night’s episode of The Colbert Report.

When it was first reported, nobody was sure if the duo would be interviewed or performing. It’s finally been revealed that Daft Punk will be performing their hit “Get Lucky.”

What other suprises will be revealed? Pharrell? Nile Rodgers? Well, you’ll just have to tune in tonight, August 6, and watch.

The Colbert Report airs at 11:30/10:30c on Comedy Central.

UPDATE, 8/7: Daft Punk were total no-shows on Tuesday night's episode of Colbert because MTV informed the show two hours before airing that they were planning to have the duo surprise perform at this year's VMAs. Woops! Since Viacom owns both Comedy Central and MTV, they thought the first performance would water down the other.

Wag of the finger, Viacom! Wag of the finger, MTV! Wag of the finger, Daft Punk!
