Metallica performed "Moth Into Flame" with Lady Gaga at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards last night (Feb. 12). The song was marred with technical difficulties as James Hetfield's mic wasn't turned on until the song's second verse. Hetfield seemed visibly upset, kicking over his mic stand and throwing his guitar away in disgust after the song ended.
