Daft Punk's first appearance at the Grammy Awards was in 2008. They appeared alongside Kanye West, who was nominated for several awards that night, including for his Daft Punk sampled song, "Stronger".
Kanye West began his performance of "Stronger" by rapping in front of a large pyramid structure. Halfway through the song, doors on the pyramid dropped open revealing Daft Punk inside in their black and red Alive 2007 Encore outfits. There they performed a live remix of "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" with special Jazz Mutant Lemur controllers.
