The 2014 Grammys: The One Where Two French Robots Won Big

 

Daft Punk picked up the two most coveted awards of the night: Album of the Year and Record of the Year. Add in to that Best Pop Group Performance and Best Dance Album, and the night belonged to the two French robots, plus Producer of the Year Pharrell Williams and the king of Chic Nile Rodgers. Seventeen-year-old Kiwi singer Lorde won Song of the Year, beating out  Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry. But Macklemore & Ryan Lewis still picked up Best New Artist, and three other awards in the rap category. So, that duo had a good night, too.
