Tonight has been a night of firsts at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. We have seen the closest we may ever see to a full on Beatles reunion (other than their upcoming special of course,) as Sir Paul McCartney took the stage with his longtime band mate Ringo Starr to perform McCartney’s song “Queenie Eye” and we saw country music legends like Kris Kristofferson take the stage with the likes of Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and Blake Shelton. However, one of the highlights of the night was watching Metallica take the stage with world renowned concert pianist Lang Lang to perform their hit song “One.”
Now, we have heard different renditions of this song before. For those of you who haven’t heard Apocalyptica’s version of the song by means of four cellos, you are missing out and should go do that right now. However, this performance was truly something special.
While we should not be surprised, there is no denying that Metallica lead singer James Hetfield still has it. You would never know that Metallica started on their musical journey back in 1981.
In case you missed it, here is a look at the performance from the Grammys tonight.
