Everybody's Human After All

This year, veteran androids Daft Punk may get more than lucky at the Grammys, as the first electronic group in history to get nominated for Album of the Year — we know it's for an album with live drums on it, but baby steps, people.

Here's the rough road that the Grammys danced along to get here. By Julianne Escobedo Shepherd and Christopher R. Weingarten
