Lady Gaga and Metallica’s collaboration at tonight’s Grammys was beset by an awkward technical mishap: As the group launched into “Moth Into The Flame,” James Hetfield’s mic didn’t seem to be working, and his vocals weren’t audible.


But the group did not follow in Adele’s footsteps and insist on a do-over. The song continued, and Gaga did a stage dive that was a little more low-tech than her high-flying antics at the Super Bowl last weekend. After the number was finished, however, Hetfield appeared visibly frustrated.
