Look they won a Grammy. In our culture, that means they are good.

I voted for Back To Black not because I felt it was necessarily the best album, although I think it probably was, but because in a way it was the album that best represented the year to me.

Essentially, to me it represents a showcase of the tremendous potential that exists in the world and a harsh reminder of the consequences of losing your way, which can be so, so easy. I felt like that was the story of the year.

I hope 2008 is better.

Should be noted that the Album of the Year award goes to pretty much everyone involted with the album (artist/band...producers...writers...engineers).

So yeah, Amy for the win! And her producer(s).

Sadly, no. The only other thing I can confirm is that Daft Punk are currently working or about to start working on new material.

DAFT PUNK GRAMMY COLLABORATION OF "STRONGER" MARKS THEIR FIRST EVER TELEVISION PERFORMANCE

SURPRISE PERFORMANCE OF "STRONGER" MARKS DAFT PUNK'S FIRST EVER TV PERFORMANCE IN THEIR 14 YEAR HISTORY.
DAFT PUNK AND KANYE WEST PERFORMED AN ORIGINAL VERSION OF "STRONGER" THAT THEY CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE EVENT.
LOS ANGELES - February 10th, 2008 - The iconic and critically acclaimed French duo Daft Punk made a surprise appearance at the 50th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles Sunday night. For their first ever television performance, they teamed up with Kanye West to perform his 2007 smash hit "Stronger", which samples the group's 2001 single "Harder Better Faster Stronger" from their landmark album Discovery. For the Grammy Awards, Daft Punk and Kanye West performed an original version of "Stronger" they created specifically for this event, marking Daft Punk's only television performance in the 14 year history of the band.

2007 found Daft Punk more relevant than ever - both critically and commercially. The duo redefined the scope of their career through a mind-blowing live show that toured internationally, followed by the theatrical release of their directorial film debut Daft Punk's Electroma, and the release of their live album Alive 2007- all to overwhelming accolades from fans and critics alike. The year culminated into a cover shared with Kanye West for SPIN magazine.
