The Grammys have revealed some of the performers that will be taking the stage at the annual music award show, but the biggest surprise on the list comes courtesy of some French DJs who like to wear helmets.

Can you guess who it is?

Well, we aren’t going to give you enough time to guess because the biggest shock on the list is that Daft Punk will be taking the stage to perform. This will be the first time in six years that the electronic duo will be performing on live television; the last time they performed on the show was in 2008 with Kanye West.

Since the release of Random Access Memories, the duo really haven’t done any public performance even though they did appear briefly on stage during the MTV Video Music Awards, but it was just to promote their newest single “Lose Yourself to Dance.” The Recording Academy is billing Daft Punk’s appearance as an “exclusive” one, so who knows, maybe it is. 

Also confirmed to take the stage is Kendrick Lamar who is nominated for seven awards including “Album of the Year” for Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, “New Artist” as well as “Best Rap Performance” for “Swimming Pools (Drank).” Imagine Dragons who are fresh from performing a killer mash-up of their songs on the American Music Awards will once again be hitting the stage for the Grammys where they are nominated for two awards one of which is “Record of the Year.”

Grammy veteran P!nk will also appear on the award show to perform what we assume is her Grammy-nominated song, “Just Give Me a Reason” with fun. frontman, Nate Ruess.

There will also be a special Grammy Moment performance by country artists Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Blake Shelton. The performance has been described as a tribute to the Texas and Oklahoma roots of the artists.

LL Cool J will once again be returning for hosting duties during the live broadcast of the show which will take place on January 26, from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. CBS will be airing the event live starting at 8 p.m. EST.
