TMZ reports that a stagehand who unplugged a wire under the stage by accident was apparently the reason why Metallica frontman James Hetfield's mic wasn’t working during the band’s live performance with Lady Gaga last night at the 59th annual Grammy Awards.

Writes TMZ:

"Sources connected to the production tell us everything was fine right before the “Moth Into Flame” collab was about to begin. Gaga and the band’s line check, right before the performance, went off without a hitch. However, between the mic check and their act … a wire under the stage got unplugged. We’re told a stagehand did it by accident, but the damage was done"
