Lady Gaga is teaming up with rockers Metallica for a very special performance this Sunday at the Grammy Awards. A sentence few could ever imagine reading, but one that has sent fans into a frenzy at the magic that could result from this pairing.

Hot off her explosive performance for the Super Bowl’s halftime show last Sunday (February 5), and the announcement of her world tour for her latest album Joanne (though no Australian dates announced as yet – sob!), Gaga will join Metallica on stage this Sunday (February 12). On Monday, a Gaga fansite tweeted a video snippet of a promo for the Grammys telecast stating, “Lady Gaga is set to perform with Metallica at the #GRAMMYs”.

The duet has since been confirmed by Rolling Stone.

While Gaga is not nominated for any awards this year, Joanne having been released after the 2016 deadline, Metallica is up for Best Rock Song for their hit “Hardwired”. They are facing off with David Bowie, Radiohead, Twenty One Pilots and Highly Suspect. With so many hits under both musical acts’ belts, the possibilities for the collaboration are endless. One thing is for sure, it will be memorable and what everyone will be talking/tweeting about.

Gaga and Metallica are the latest star collaboration announced for the upcoming ceremony. Previous pairings include Alicia Keys and country singer Maren Morris, and the Weeknd performing once again with Daft Punk. Other performers on the night include Katy Perry, Kelsea Ballerini, John Legend, Carrie Underwood, Bruno Mars, Keith Urban, Adele, and Beyoncé.

Hosted by James Corden, the 59th Grammy Awards will air on Sunday February 12 at 8pm ET on CBS.
