Most Face-Melting Performance
They may have collaborated with a symphony before, but it's safe to say that Metallica has never given a performance like this version of "One" with Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang. If anyone can match Kirk Hammett's insane guitar-shredding, it's Lang's whirling-dervish piano-playing — but unfortunately, his key-twinkling seemed out of sync with the song at times. Disturbing background images and plenty of strobe lights helped to drive the song's anti-war message home. Hammett's Lou Reed shirt was also a nice touch.
