Watch Babymetal & Rob Halford Slay Judas Priest Songs at 2016 APMAs

It was one of the night's most anticipated performances, but the Alternative Press Music Awards bringing together Rob Halford and Babymetal shredded even harder than we would have ever expected.

Watch the full, 13-minute performance that opens with the J-pop/metal trio performing their single "Karate"—off their new Metal Resistance album—in their signature, high-energy style. Soon enough, the group is joined by the Judas Priest singer to collaborate on classics by the band including "Painkiller" and "Breaking the Law."

There are notable moments throughout it all, like when Su-metal and Halford duet on "Painkiller," along with Yuimetal and Moametal showing off their shredding skills on guitar.

Stay tuned for interviews from the 2016 APMAs with Babymetal and many more artists coming to Fuse soon. In the meantime, check out us chatting with Su-metal, Yuimetal and Mometal about their famous fans like Marilyn MansonAll Time Low and Ariana Grande:
