Babymetal & Judas Priest's Rob Halford to Perform Together at 2016 APMAs

A metal god will collaborate with metal's new princesses at this year's Alternative Press Music Awards.

Judas Priest singer Rob Halford will join Babymetal for the J-pop/metal trio's performance at the upcoming 2016 APMAs this July. The act confirmed the news on Twitter on May 28. No word on whether it'll feature Halford singing in Japanese, but fingers crossed for a true moment of language barrier breaking.

Babymetal is nominated for Best International Band at the 2016 APMAs and the ceremony mark the group's very first U.S. award show.
