Metallica + Lady Gaga Self-Destruct At The 2017 Grammy Awards

The 2017 Grammy Awards have now concluded, many artists have left the Staples Center happy with their hardware, and some artists have left with a rather bitter taste in their mouths. One of the highlights occurred with metal masters Metallica joining Lady Gaga on stage, performing “Moth Into Flame” together, a song from Metallica’s latest studio album “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.”

While the excitement built leading to their performance, things seemed to have gone arwy, as singer James Hetfield had experienced issues with his microphone as if it appeared to be off. Thankfully, the Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga, came in to the rescue, offering her microphone to a helpless Hetfield, as they press forward to complete the song. Despite the help, Hetfield showed a bit of frustration about it, resorting to throwing his guitar as a result.

Being a fan of heavy metal, it’s safe to say that Lady Gaga was excited to share the stage with one of her favorite metal bands during such an important event. The Mother Monster was so excited, that in preparation for the performance of “Moth Into Flame,” the singer decided to get a rather large tattoo on her back of a hellspawn moth with a human skull.

Lady Gaga was certainly the hero of the night, as Hetfield was one to refuse to be silenced, sharing the microphone with her to complete the song, and the evening that showcased Hetfield’s former guitarist Dave Mustaine, who won big, winning the Grammy for their album “Dystopia.” Oh… and we could have done without the goofy onstage faux-moshers in the background.

Coming off a big performance during the Super Bowl Halftime Show, Lady Gaga is on a role, with some big gigs that is getting her in the highest of spotlights. The sky is the limit for what is next for Gaga.

As for Metallica, the band will announce more information regarding their upcoming tour tomorrow (February 13th). It will surely be BIG news, as they will share exactly where they will be performing. Fans are undoubtedly going to be glued to their computer screens, anxiously waiting to see news break on the bands upcoming World Wired tour. A tour that has been long awaited by millions, and one that will certainly be worth the wait.
