On the awards show she blamed the incident on "acid reflux" (read: heartburn) that caused her to lose her voice between rehearsals and the show.

Doesn't explain her voice being totally alright at the very end of SNL when she tried to explain away the incident.

PS: Acid Reflux does NOT cause you to lose your voice entirely.

PPS: Convenient how they had a pre-recorded vocal track there when she "lost her voice" eh?

no, because:

1. u2 write their own material
2. u2 perform their own material
3. u2 are a band that plays instruments and sings for real
4. u2 have screwed up live many times and it still sounds great
5. u2 are professional and would never do a jig and run off the stage
6. u2 didn't get a record deal because of their sister
7. u2 never said that lip-syncing is "not them" and then do it anyway
8. bono has been singing for nearly 30 years, if he needs a little help, I grant him that. not a 20 ear old just starting out.
9. u2's musicality has been proven, oh I don't know, maybe 1000 times over. her's hasn't been.
10. that song is really easy to sing, vocally singing. bono's parts are usally way more involved (melodically and dynamically).

How the hell do we know she ever sang anything on her record?

SNL is just as lame for having her on in the first place.

You cant really compare u2 TOTP to this thing, Bono didn't lip-synch in the first place, and the decision to not play the instruments is a TOTP rule, not a choice u2 made. SNL basically tell their guests to play live, TOTP do the opposite. Damn...that Jessica Simpson is hot

In the New York Daily News, Jim Farber actually mentions U2 in an article about Simpson's gaffe as an example that even well respected groups need "synthetic help" at times on stage. Hmmm:

Well, it is true. U2 uses backing tapes on most songs. Synthesizers, loops, additional guitars, etc. I think they should give her a break about the backing tape. What is bad is she left the stage. A performer should never do that unless there is a serious emergency. Even then, there have been a lot of examples of rock performers continuing to play even when bleeding all over.

I agree that she really should not have left the stage, but I can understand why she would. I doubt if she would take that route again, but it's understandable.

At first, I thought it was an intentional gaffe by her band -- maybe they were getting back at her for something. They were sort of snickering at each other after she left the stage. In hindsight, they were probably just embarrased, too.

(well, the one I know) I don't think her voice is that bad, either. Even on the acoustic one it's much better than someone like Britney or Madonna's.

well let's just get rid of the excuses at the bottom and just deal with answers 1 through 3 there, which are the core of most people's hatred for pop music.

1. u2 write their own material frank sinatra didn't write his own material
2. u2 perform their own material thus then he didn't perform his own material
3. u2 are a band that plays instruments and sings for real and while frank did sing for real, he certainly wasn't out there strummin' along with a geeetar or playin' the piano.

stick with the "her music sucks" argument... it's a much more valid point.
