It was revealed Thursday morning that French duo Daft Punk will perform at the Grammy Awards on Jan. 26. The show will also feature performances by Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons, a duet between P!nk and Nate Ruess from fun.; as well as a performance featuring Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Blake Shelton and Kris Kristofferson.

The mysterious pair have not performed on television since their 2008 Grammy performance with Kanye West.

"We learned that because they had such a good experience with us when they appeared with Kanye in 2008, they were happy to discuss a performance on this year's show," said executive producer Ken Ehrlich.

"Conversations took place over a period of a couple of months, and finally they agreed to be a part of this year's telecast. Details of the performance are still being worked out, but the idea of having the exclusive television performance by this iconic band is something we're very, very excited about."

Daft Punk was scheduled to perform on “The Colbert Report” this past summer but canceled due to a contract they had to present at MTV’s VMAs.

Daft Punk released their latest album “Random Access Memories” in May. Despite the duo doing no touring to support it, the album still debuted at number one on the Billboard charts. The effort is nominated for Album of the Year, Best Dance/Electronica Album and Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical). The duo’s song “Get Lucky” is also nominated for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
