After hearing Invisible…I hope that is what they play.

If they do one song:
Ordinary Love is boring but it is up for an Oscar, so it would make sense that they play it (barf)

If they do two songs:
Invisible- Awesome song (first impression of a U2 fan, so take it with a grain of salt).

If they do three songs:

Classic to close the show with a bang. I would say (in order of likelihood): Vertigo, Beautiful Day, I will Follow, Desire or Pride

Is it confirmed they're playing three songs? My guess is Ordinary Love, Invisible and Beautiful Day.

Chance of real first single is slim to none. With the secrecy around this one, they won't want people hearing it until they hit full on album promo mode.

If the album truly isn't coming out until June, it's doubtful they'd play the "official" first single in February.

The album is coming out tomorrow morning, obviously. Invisible is the lead single, Bono lies.

I would be very surprised if U2 get to play more than 1 song that night. That one will be INVISIBLE.

We know that U2 have been rehearsing Beautiful Day for Fallon. If they're playing two songs, I'm guessing Invisible and Beautiful day. If three, then Invisible, Beautiful Day, and Ordinary Love.

There was a picture of Edge's gear during the rehearsals, and some screen on some device of his said "B DAY".

If it's a June album, no. Plus Fallon will be a couple of weeks after Invisible, and a week or so before they'll be performing Ordinary Love at the Oscars (and small chance of winning one) - introducing a third new song then wouldn't be a good idea, it's a muddled message and they'll want that real lead single to go huge.

I also think that if the album is June then we won't get that much from the interview either. It will of course have to come up, but I think the most we'll get is finally a direct but rough confirmation on the month ("at the moment it's looking like June") and then standard Bono-hype quotes, maybe a bit more specific (juicier hints on songs or sound).

And a third song option could be something with the Roots?
