The Weeknd and Daft Punk Perform at the Grammys in Their Own Fortress of Solitude
In their first live performance since the 2014 Grammys, Daft Punk hit the stage, helmets and all, with the Weeknd at this year’s 59th Annual Grammy Awards
The pairing made in electro-pop heaven performed “I Feel it Coming” from the Weeknd’s latest album, Starboy. The French duo also lent their signature sound to the album’s title track.
The trio kept the crowd pumped as they performed amid an icicle-filled stage reminiscent of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. Clouded in purple and blue lights, the Canadian crooner dazzled in a leather jacket embroidered in silver sequin hearts while the electronic duo kept it usual with their chrome helmets and all back outfits.
Daft Punk added to the futuristic feel of the performance by playing their instruments behind silver lit up icicles. The Weeknd joined the duo for a slowed-down soulful end to the song.
Neither performer was up for a Grammy at the ceremony as Daft Punk hasn’t released new music since 2013’s Random Access Memories and Starboy was released after the Grammy’s deadline, but the Weeknd has two previous wins his belt, and Daft Punk have scored six over their decades-spanning career.

As a tease for the performance, Daft Punk announced earlier this week a pop-up shop in Los Angeles that will feature set pieces, props, wardrobe, and photos for fans to explore up close and personal. The shop will be set up from Feb. 11-19.
