Daft Punk storm the Grammys

Dance duo Daft Punk are the toast of France after sweeping top honours at the Grammys in Los Angeles. On today’s all-music show we discover how their 2013 album "Random Access Memories" impressed the voters. We’re also checking out a controversy surrounding fellow big winners Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who scooped top prizes in the rap category – and who hosted a mass wedding during their performance, in support of marriage equality.

Elsewhere at the Grammys, the surviving members of the Beatles – Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr – are reunited for a rare shared stage appearance. We tell you why.

Also on the show: we’re reporting on the first ever solo efforts by former Blur and Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn, ahead of the release of “Everyday Robots” on April 28th.

Finally, Francesco Tristano, from French classical-electro trio Aufgang, tells us about the group’s take on piano-based dance music, and why they collaborated with a porn producer for one of their videos.
