Lady Gaga lived out her fan-girl dreams when she shared the stage with Metallica during the 2017 Grammys.
However, technical problems and fans’ disappointment about a lack of a political message put a damper on the otherwise fiery (literally) performance.
Mic troubles left Gaga singing Metallica’s “Moth Into Flame” mostly alone during the song’s opening verses, and the Joanne signer danced wildly about the stage and even crowd surfed.
Sadly, fans who were hoping for a more socially conscious message from Gaga’s performance didn’t get that.
Thankfully, it was Laverne Cox, who introduced the performance, that reminded viewers what was really important. Cox urged the crowd as soon as she got on stage to google the name Gavin Grimm. Grimm is a transgender teenager from Virginia who is taking his case for equal access to bathrooms and changing rooms to the Supreme Court.
