What Was Going on with Lady Gaga and Metallica's Grammy Performance

    Both with huge fan bases, expectations for Lady Gaga and Metallica's 2017 Grammy performance were high, but fans didn't get what they hoped for. "Moth Into Flame," from Metallica's 2016 album Hardwired... to Self-Destruct, was the song planned for the performance, but what we got was a disappointment. From writing solo dance-pop to performing jazzy duets with Tony Bennett, Gaga is now doing metal with Metallica.

    To start, the host only announced Gaga. Not Metallica. Then the camera shows the stage filled with head-bangers... A super cheesy and inaccurate depiction of rock shows. Then James Hetfield's microphone doesn't work for a solid chunk of the song. Gaga's voice sounded absolutely incredible, but that's where it ended. Every rock cliche was packed in there. As she sported an overly-done outfit ripped off of Madonna and crowd surfed on top of a fake filler crowd, the performance seemed more like what people who don't listen to rock thinks rock is like.

    Gaga switches genres so much, we basically forgot who she actually is. She sounded great and so did once the mic started working, so did Metallica, but there were too many confusing moments distracting us from the good.
