Metallica has been a superstar as long as Lollapalooza has ever been a thing. Rocking out 16 songs on the first day of Lollapalooza's stage, Metallica went back to their first album Kill 'Em All released 39 years ago, and kicked off the stage with "Whiplash." Lead vocalist, James Hetfield screams out to the audience, "We are very blessed after 41 years to still be up here kicking your ass and you kicking ours."

Coming down to their encore, they performed "Battery", "One", and of course, "Master of Puppets" which recently surged in popularity thanks to Netflix's most loved series, Stranger Things. In fact, as they performed "Master of Puppets", Metallica projected footage of Eddie Munson playing along to the song in The Upside Down onto two massive screens above the stage. Most metal ever!

Previously stunned us with their sensational maternity shoot, power couple Big Sean and Jhene Aiko shared a stage at Lollapalooza. In the middle of his set, Big Sean invites a surprise guest none other than her pregnant girlfriend Jhene Aiko to sing their featured songs "Beware" and "I Know". They showed nothing but love and intimate moments on stage like how Big Sean is rubbing and sending a sweet kiss to her exposed belly bump. The American rapper reflects on this moment through his tweet, "Best part of today was seeing our baby in Momma's belly and you all showing so much love on stage... It took me my whole life to get on this Lolla stage, our baby's on there at 24 weeks in the womb, thankyou for this feeling!" he said. Couple goals indeed!

Before Machine Gun Kelly took the stage, the speakers blasted "Welcome to the Black Parade" by My Chemical Romance as he made his entrance in front of the roaring audiences of Lollapalooza. With 90 minutes of showtime, MGK delivered an outstanding performance in a total of 17 songs including a cover of Paramore's "Misery Business." Much like Big Sean, he brings out Avril Lavigne, the pop-punk princess to sing "Bois Lie", Iann Dior to sing "Fake Love Don't Last", as well as Glaive who gave a performance of "More Than Life". Hand him the pop-punk crown now!

Dressed in bedazzled skin tight one piece, Dua Lipa opens the main stage with her hit track "Physical" from her Grammy-winning 2020 album, Future Nostalgia. Dua Lipa took a moment to reflect on her music journey as she recalled her first performance at Lollapalooza was held on its side stage. She owned the stage as she got the crowd grooving to her made-for-the-dancefloor tracks, "New Rules" and "Levitating." Before she finished her set with "Don't Start Now", the British singer yelled out to the audience, "Stand up for the LGBTQ community, stand up for each other and I'm here to stand up for you in whatever way I can, I Promise." What a queen!
