Meanwhile, the technical glitch that spoiled her Grammys performance with Metallica has been revealed to have been caused by a stagehand.

Seconds before the live duet, a stagehand unplugged  a wire below the stage that caused Metallica lead singer James Hetfield’s mic to fall silent, TMZ reported Monday.

Sources connected to the production told the website that Gaga and Metallica’s line check right before their performance of Moth Into Flame was perfect.

But in the seconds between the check and the start of the live set, the crucial wire got unplugged.

It did get fixed but with just seconds to go before the end of the song, making it too late to salvage the highly-anticipated set.  

After singing a few non-amplified lines, Hetfield moved to share Gaga’s microphone, solving the issue.

Despite the rusty start Metallica put on a spirited performance, with a crowd-surfing Gaga throwing herself into the show.

Dressed in leather shorts covered in metal chains, worn over a fishnet bodysuit, she certainly looked the part. 

But despite the thrilling show, it was clear the sound failure annoyed the band, with Hetfield even throwing his guitar onto the stage in a fury as their performance came to an end.
