They also perform the Grammy winning track "Where Are Ü Now" with a live band

Last night the 58th annual Grammys took over the Staples Center in Los Angeles to honor accomplishments made in music. The industry's biggest names come out in full force and as electronic music continues to make it's way into the mainstream, it has also infiltrated The Grammys.

This year featured a full sweep of the dance music categories with Skrillex and Diplo winning the Best Dance/Electronic Album award for their debut album as Jack Ü aptly titled Skrillex & Diplo Present Jack Ü. They also received the award from Best Dance Recording for their track "Where Are Ü Now", which also helped Justin Bieber land his first Grammy.

Jack Ü and Justin Bieber previously won an American Music Award and MTV European Music Award for Best Collaboration with "Where Are Ü Now," after reaching a coveted double platinum status and gaining over one billion plays worldwide. 

The group also performed the new track live at the Grammys, featuring a full band with Skrillex on guitar, Diplo on keyboard, Jon Theodore from Queens of the Stone Age on drums, Mike Einziger of Incubus on additional percussion and keys, and world class string players Tina Guo, Ann Marie Simpson and Abigail Rose on violin and cello. You can listen to that version below.
