Metallica performing LIVE to the world at the Grammys should have been a pleasurable moment for any metal fan. Knowing the song choice was “Moth Into Flame” would have pulled in so many more viewers and that Lady GaGa was also performing with them would have been one of the biggest audiences they’ve ever seen, but some
work experience kid employee forgot to turn on front-man James Hetfield‘s microphone for the duration of the start of the song.
Frustrating enough for anyone trying to give a performance let alone the band in question. We wonder if foul play was at hand or if it was a simple mistake. Either way, get among the footage below!
*Note – CBS keep removing the video so get in while you can!
