The 56th annual Grammy Awards show has wrapped and honoured Dance Music in a big way. Our beloved French duo Daft Punk has taken a five out of five sweep with them home, receiving the world’s most important musical award in the categories “Best Record Of The Year” for „Get Lucky“ (which is the first time ever that a Dance record wins this category), “Best Album Of The Year” for „Random Access Memories“, „Best Duo / Group Performance Of The Year“, „Best Dance / Electronica Album Of The Year“ and „Best Engineered Album, Non-Clasical“. Wow, wow, wow! Congratulations on these!

In other categories, German producer Zedd checked out 2013 with a Grammy for „Best Dance Recording Of The Year“ with his Foxes-collaboration „Clarity“, and French producer Cedric Gervais wins for his amazing remix of Lana Del Rey’s „Summertime Sadness“. Check the competition:

Here are some tidbits:
The highly anticipated second ever TV-live performance of Daft Punk was a smash! With Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers and more joining the song, „Get Lucky“ made the audience cheer and dance all along! See it here!

I was curious what would happen if Daft Punk wins a Grammy and have to do the acceptance speech! Would they actually… SPEAK? Here’s what happened!
