LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Daft Punk has won the top honor at Grammy Awards, taking album of the year for "Random Access Memories."

The French electronic pioneers capped the night with the win after taking song of the year for "Get Lucky."

The two mask-wearing musicians hugged each other for several seconds before taking the stage with Pharrell, Nile Rodgers and Paul Williams, part of the large crew who helped Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo produce the album.

They beat out Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Sara Bareilles for the award.
