Grammy Awards Results: Daft Punk Wins Top Honor


The 2014 Grammy Awards saw Daft Punk, the electro-pop duo from France, win the night’s top award for their album Random Access Memories.

Daft Punk also took home the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Record of the Year awards for “Get Lucky” with Pharrell Williams – who served as the helmet-clad pair’s voice in accepting their awards. In the pre-show, they were awarded Best Dance/Electronica Album.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis also ended the night with four awards – Best New Artist, Best Rap Album (The Heist), Best Rap Song (“Thrift Shop”) and Best Rap Performance (“Thrift Shop”). The twosome also performed onstage at the Grammy’s, singing "Same Love" with Mary Lambert as Queen Latifah married 34 couples, many of which were same-sex. Madonna later joined them onstage as well.

Lordes, the 17-year-old New Zealander, made history at the Grammy’s, becoming the youngest person to win the Song of the Year award for “Royals.” She also took home the award for best pop solo performance.
