The world now knows that Lady Gaga can put on an incredible Super Bowl halftime performance, which includes fearlessly jumping off of the roof of a football stadium wearing nothing but a cabled harness, but can mother monster ride the lightning? Fans will find out this Sunday, as Gaga is rumored to be performing alongside Metallica at the 59th Grammy Awards this weekend, Rolling Stone reports.
Fresh off her performance from the top of Houston’s NRG Stadium on Sunday night, Gaga will head west to the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles for music’s biggest night, where she will be singing with the masters of puppets themselves for what should be a pretty heavy collaboration. The performance was leaked by a Lady Gaga fanpage Twitter account, who posted a short clip of what looks to be a Grammy promo ad showing the two artists together alongside the voiceover announcement stating, “Lady Gaga performs with Metallica.”
Fans of Gaga know that the thirty year old “Joanne” singer loves her rock music. She belted out an impressive cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog” on Howard Stern’s radio show a few months back. She also made her heavily-opinionated tribute to David Bowie at the Grammys last year, and to the surprise of many classic rock fans, she really did the starman proud in covering some of his best songs just weeks following his sudden passing.
This will be Metallica’s first performance at the Grammy’s since 2014, when they collaborated with classical Pianist Lang Lang to perform their haunting ballad, “One.”
Both artists put out highly anticipated albums in 2016, so some originals off the new LPs could be in order, as well as Gaga possibly taking over vocal duties during “For Whom The Bell Tolls” or “Whiskey In The Jar” perhaps? Fans will have to tune into the Grammy Awards on when it airs on CBS this Sunday night at 8p EST.
