Fans can reportedly look forward to another side of Lady Gaga when she teams up with Metallica for the 59th Grammy Awards show on Sunday night (Feb. 12).

However, according to USA Today, fans excitement regarding Lady Gaga's performance with Metallica was ran into temporary glitches during the Grammy show.

James Hetfield and Gaga shared a mic once it was clear Hetfield's wasn't working, but that didn't take away from the performance-it was fire. At all. Which meant after a couple aborted verses he had to scurry over to Lady Gaga's mic and share hers. "No matter who you are or what you do", Gaga wrote.

Gaga dived around the stage, stumbling at times as she hopped between the different levels. A giant moth with a skull for a face and wing span that covers her entire back would easily be the biggest tattoo that the artist has. Despite the technical issues, Gaga showed off her rock skills and even ended the performance with some crowd surfing.

What to expect in W.Va. public schools
DeVos later made it into Jefferson Middle School Academy in Southwest D.C. for her first visit as secretary to a public school. Many criticized DeVos's nomination because she has little experience in public education.


Lady Gaga just silenced her body shamers with her ultra-revealing outfit on the 2017 Grammys red carpet.

Insult to injury? Laverne Cox forgot to mention Metallica in her intro.

It was the second time the British singer's performance at the awards ceremony had been hindered, after a mic fell on the piano strings during her track All I Ask a year ago. She has won six Grammys herself out of 17 nominations over the years, and she never misses a chance to take to the stage.

While you might not expect these two acts to perform together, given their different musical styles, both are performers in the true sense. "I can't do it again like past year".
