Metallica and Lady Gaga perform “Moth Into Flame” at the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Unfortunately, it seemed like James’ mic wasn’t working. In a true rock and roll moment, that did not stop the duo and they made it work and shared a mic. Lady Gaga went all out, in her best heavy metal cosplay, including a Metallica back tattoo.

In an interview earlier today, Kirk Hammett said he was apprehensive at first but praised Gaga’s vocal range, saying she brings a new edge to Metallica’s performance. Earlier this week, Lady Gaga said in an interview that Metallica “were playing better than they have in their whole lives.” So there is love all around.

Metallica went on to perform to their sold out Citi Card members only show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles and have announced their WorldWired U.S. Stadium Tour dates this morning with Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat and Gojira at the opening acts.
