Update: Daft Punk has canceled their appearance on The Colbert Report.
Tonight’s the night: Daft Punk will make a rare television appearance on The Colbert Report. And though it was unclear upon the initial announcement, it’s now official: the Robots will, in fact, be performing.
According to Colbert’s website, on tonight’s episode “the electronic music duo Daft Punk helps Stephen perform the song of the summer at this years Colbchella.” Presumably, that song is “Get Lucky”, especially since Colbert crashed Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and danced to the song in anticipation of Daft Punk’s appearance.
Also worth noting: “Get Lucky” collaborator Nile Rodgers is also in New York City as he’s scheduled to appear on tonight’s episode of Fallon. Might he join in on the performance?
All shall be revealed later tonight. Stay tuned.
