A little performance has gone a long way for Imagine Dragons , Daft Punk and Lorde .

Following the first full sales week after all three acts played the 56th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, Daft Punk's Random Access Memories -- which was named Album of the Year at the Grammys -- shot up to #10 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, from its previous perch at #39 thanks to a whopping 300 percent sales increase over the prior week. Lorde's Pure Heroine, which features her Grammy-winning hit "Royals," moves from #5 to #2 on an 86 percent sales increase.

Meanwhile, Imagine Dragons' members have seen sales of the tune they played, "Radioactive," jump to 208,000 copies, 239 percent more than the number of downloads sold the prior week, good to move the song from #29 to #4 on the Billboard Digital Songs chart. The Dragons' full album, Night Visions , also apparently benefited from the band's exposure to the 28.5 million viewers of the awards show; the disc rose from #11 to #8 with on the Billboard 200 with sales of 39,000 units.
