Metallica & Lady Gaga at the Grammys - With a Working Mic!

By now, I'm sure you've heard about (or maybe watched live) the Lady Gaga/Metallica performance from the Grammy Awards from Sunday.  There was a technical issue during the performance, where Metallica frontman James Hetfield's microphone was completely inaudible.  If you pay close attention to James during the performance, you can tell that he's upset.  He pushes over the faulty mic at one point - and even throws his guitar when the song is over.

But what you didn't hear at home is this - the web feed of the performance, complete with working microphones.  The Metallica Facebook fan page RoLoad claims that this version of the performance was from the web feed of the awards, with "only the TV broadcast having problems for some reason."

TMZ has reported that a stagehand accidentally unplugged the microphone of the Metallica singer, while the Recording Academy had a slightly different take on the situation.  "What we believe happened was that either a dancer or an extra clipped the line running on the floor," a spokesperson explained.  "It unplugged at the base of the mic. It was, of course, accidental."

Either way, here's how you can check out the version of the Metallica song "Moth Into Flame" featuring some vocals (and dancing) from Lady Gaga.  

Do you think these two artists will (or should) collaborate in the future?
