Lady Gaga To Join Metallica At Grammys

Perhaps this is related to Metallica recently postponing dates due to James Hetfield being instructed by a doctor to "not sing one single note" while his throat condition improves (though the performance is reportedly a duet).

Rolling Stone reported that the video (below) does not lie and confirmed the collaboration is happening.

Lady Gaga and Metallica are set to team up for a duet at this year's Grammy Awards. The Bad Romance singer was last seen at the Grammys stage in 2016 where she paid a tribute to David Bowie.

Lady Gaga, meanwhile, released his album Joanne too late for him to be appointed in the competition.

"In true GRAMMY Moment fashion, this pairing is sure to make for another unforgettable performance during Music's Biggest Night".

Artists including Adele, Katy Perry and Bruno Mars have also been confirmed to take to the stage.

It has been a busy week for Gaga as she was heavily praised for her highly-energetic and ambitious 13-minute performance at the Super Bowl on Sunday night. Metallica hasn't been on the show since 2014, when they performed the song 'One' with the classical pianist Lang Lang.

Also named as performers Tuesday for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards were current Grammy nominees Kelsea Ballerini and Lukas Graham, and Grammy nominee Cynthia Erivo, who will join with previously announced 10-time Grammy victor John Legend in a tribute to those from the music community who died in the past year. This time they will compete for the best rock song of the year with their title Hardwired.
