The album and record of the year at The Grammy's went to a couple of French robots. According to a report in The Staten island Advance by Associated Press earlier today (January 27), "the French electronic duo's "Random Access Memories" won album of the year and their infectious hit, "Get Lucky," won record of the year at the awards show." The song features Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, added http://www.silive.com.

"Daft Punk, who sports helmets in public, won four awards, as did Pharrell Williams and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis," added the report in AP in The Advance. "Well, I suppose the robots would like to thank...." joked Williams, who also won non-classical producer of the year. "You know honestly, I bet, France is really proud of these guys right now."

Other awards that Daft Punk included went home with included "best dance/electronica album for "Random Access Memories" and pop duo/group performance for "Get Lucky," which earned Williams a trophy. Williams had seven nods, but competed with himself and could only take home four awards, which he did," according to the report.

Stan Island arts and music fans also made "a big unexpected win for the French electronic robotic singing sensation," added The Advance.
