I think so, but I might be misremembering. I think it was a lot of "Yay, U2 .... but why are they there, exactly?"

There may have been a few more snippy comments like "they should pimp their album somewhere else and leave the spot on the show for someone nominated!" or something to that effect, like it was unseemly that U2 was performing their new song when they only there to do just that.

Yeah, I can see that.

I kinda remember watching it and being a bit nervous for them because deep down I didn't feel like "Boots" was a very good song, and I was hoping Bono wouldn't wear eyeliner (I hated the fact that he was wearing eyeliner at the time...hated, hated, hated it...seems silly now), and if I recall correctly it wasn't the greatest performance.

Yet still the highlight of the Grammy's that year.

I liked that song better than I did the first time I heard it.

I tuned in late and missed it, seeing what he has become only diminishes my many memories of how great he once was.

His show in 2008 was one of the best concerts I've ever been to
