Grammy 2017: Main awkward moments of past ceremony [Video]

The 59th Grammy Awards ceremony, which honored the achievements in music for 2016, took place on February 12.

The event, held at the sports complex Staples Center in Los Angeles (USA), has not been without awkward moments. The first situation occurred during Metallica's performances with the pop singer Lady Gaga. Before the musicians coming on stage, the host announced only Lady Gaga. Also, James Hetfield’s microphone was not working most part of the show. At the end of the set, the pissed musician turned his microphone stand and threw the guitar to the backstage.

Upd: Metallica and Lady Gaga "Moth Into Flame" dress rehearsal — how it should have sounded.

Another curiosity happened with Megadeth. The band, who won in the category of "Best Metal Performance" for the song "Dystopia", in the category of "Best Metal Performance". Musicians came on stage to the accompaniment of Metallica’s "Master of Puppets" — the band who parted ways with Megadeth’s leader Dave Mustaine back in 1983.
