Daft Punk 'Get Lucky' with Grammy record of year

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Daft Punk's infectiously catchy song "Get Lucky " is the Grammy Awards' record of the year.

The mask-wearing electronic music pioneers Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo from France accepted the award with singer Pharrell and collaborator Nile Rodgers in tow.

"Get Lucky" was one of the year's largest hits and spearheaded Daft Punk's "Random Access Memories," which also took best dance/electronica album.

Pharrell accepted the award for the robots, dressed in white suits and white masks.

Precocious teenager Lorde is the Grammy Awards song of the year winner.

Lorde's inescapable anti-swag anthem "Royals" continued its unlikely run through pop music Sunday night, giving the New Zealander her second Grammy Award of the evening.

"Royals" was originally recorded by Lorde and Joel Little to be given away for free, but ended up making the singer one of the year's biggest surprises. The describes a night of partying done on the cheap - unlike many current pop songs - with the hook: "We don't care, we're not caught up in your love affair."

She won in a category that included major pop stars Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Pink and the early Grammys leader Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who have four awards.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis dominated the Grammy Awards early on, picking up major honor best new artist.

The win brought the Seattle rap duo's total to four awards just moments into Sunday night's telecast from Staples Center in Los Angeles. This, after they won best rap song and rap performance for "Thrift Shop," and best rap album for "The Heist" in a stunning three-minute period during the pre-telecast awards ceremony at the nearby Nokia Theatre.
