This won’t be the first time Gaga and Metallica have paired up with other performers at the Grammys. In 2010, Gaga had a memorable duet with friend Elton John, in which they took the stage for a “Poker Face” – “Speechless” – “Your Song” mash-up. Meanwhile, Metallica had teamed up with Chinese pianist lang Lang for their hit classic, “One.”
The 59th Grammy Awards ceremony will air Sunday, Feb. 12 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
