After a Super Bowl Halftime show (opens in new tab) that was *sheer* perfection (opens in new tab), we were beyond excited to see what was in store for Lady Gaga's Grammy performance (opens in new tab).

Before the Grammys, it was revealed that Gaga would be performing with Metallica, who previously said they had (opens in new tab) "something very unique and special planned."

What resulted was a head-banger that made for one seriously fierce Lady Gaga performance, as she sported a Metallica tank and snarled into the microphone like a natural metal-head. But the same frustrations Adele experienced with sound issues earlier in the evening (opens in new tab) (and last year, too) were a consistent theme here, since members of Metallica's microphones didn't even seem to be on at the beginning of the performance. Gaga shook off the sound issues like a pro, though, and ended things by crowd-surfing and twirling on them haters, which may be the only appropriate way to end a somewhat awkward performance with dignity.
