Unlike some other music award shows, The Grammy Awards are kind of a big deal and people tend to actually take them seriously. The 56th Grammys is to be staged on January 26 and while the nominees have been getting some major buzz, this year’s host and some performers have just been announced.

The big news surrounds the men responsible for one of the most hyped dance albums this year – Daft Punk will indeed be taking the stage at the upcoming show. This will be the first time they’ve performed for live television since 2008, where they joined another of 2013’s highly publicised musicians, Kanye West. Other performers also on the bill so far include multiple award nominee, Kendrick Lamar, country legend Willie Nelson and honorary Aussie, Pink. The show will be hosted by the suave rapper turned TV star LL Cool J.
