Stevie Wonder is billed to join Daft Punk's first televised live performance in over five years, RollingStone.com reports. 

A source confirmed that Wonder will perform with the house music duo at the Grammys later this month, adding him with fellow guestlisters Pharrell Williams, Nile Rogers and session players from Daft Punk's Random Access Memories release. No other details have been released about the live set.

The French artists' last television performance was at the 2008 Grammys with Kanye West.  

Speaking to RollingStone.com a few weeks ago, show executive producer Ken Ehlrich described the group's top-secret performance as a "collaborative and celebratory" effort "that honors [Daft Punk's] multi-nominated music." 

Daft Punk is up for four Grammys, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year, the latter of which is for the triple-platinum hit "Get Lucky," featuring Williams. They will go up against the N.E.R.D. producer in the Record of the Year category (he received an additional nod for his work on Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" single), as well as Night Vision's "Radio Active," Lorde's "Royals" and "Locked Out of Heaven" by Bruno Mars

As for performances, Kendrick Lamar, Pink and Nate Reuss (of the band Fun) will also hit the Grammy stage, live from Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 26.
