It will be the first time the electronic duo – comprised of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo – have performed since 2014, when they did ‘Get Lucky’ with Pharrell Williams, Stevie Wonder and Nile Rodgers.

The Recording Academy also confirmed the following performers; Alicia Keys, Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl. Anderson . Paak, A Tribe Called West and Maren Morris have joined the star-studded line-up.

Previously announced acts are Bruno Mars, Adele, Metallica, John Legend, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban, who will take to the stage at the show.
Bruno, 31, is reportedly in talks to for a Prince tribute at the bash.

According to Billboard, the ’24K Magic’ hitmaker will take to the stage accompanied by members of The Time – who were close to the late music icon, who tragically passed away in June 2016 at the age of 57 of an accidental fentanyl overdose – however, sources stressed to the publication that “the performance has not yet been confirmed”.
