As you know, Metallica and Lady Gaga have performed “Moth Into Flame” at the 58th Grammy Awards. Due to technical problems, the concert was awful, but according to Lars, the situation was not that bad. Lars Ulrich says that Lady Gaga and Metallica’s collaborations will continue.

Lars talked on Lady Gaga in an interview with AV Club. He said:

“Listen, I knew this was going to work. I mean, Gaga is a metal chick at heart. There was no way this was not going to work. It was totally in her DNA. It was totally in her wheelhouse. This was not not going to work. The only question was at what level it was going to work.


We did one run-through. The way her and James’ voices worked, it jelled so well together we all kind of stood there like, “Huh?” It was really fucking next-level. I think we rehearsed it twice, maybe three times on Friday night. And it was just dialed.

There was no sort of, “Oh, my god, what are we doing here?” This was as natural and organic as you could imagine this type of stuff being. This was a home run from the get-go.
