Exactly!! And the hate..it's absolutely ludicrous, it's probably one of the best U2 covers of all time. And yes so it sounds kindof like a hip hop/rnb flavor to it...but wait...the original One did too in terms of the rhythm, as did UTEOTW, Ultraviolet, So Cruel...also..it IS U2 on the track, in case people forget.


As for Lee's BD...honestly, I think that was one of the worst final round performances I've ever seen. Mailed in, no emotion, hardly even tried to hit a high note or take it to another level with the vocal arrangement...I was waiting for a special spine tingling moment and it just never came. Bland, bland, bland. And his announcement as winner for THAT??! I'm sorry, but AI just hit the all-time low IMO. It's too bad Crystal choked up, because she was just so beautiful there.

Careful now. Them's fightin' words.

Ah well, U2 has always been a lot blacker than most of their fans.

What's that line from The Commitments?

The Irish are the Blacks of Europe ...
Dubliners are the Blacks of Ireland ...
People from the north side are the Blacks of Dublin!

So say it once, say it loud - I'm Black and I'm proud!


Aren't U2 from the north side?

I have no problem with Mary covering the song. My only issue is that in the performances I've seen where she does it, I think she oversings it a bit at times. But I've no problem with rap/hip-hop artists covering U2. Or sampling them-I saw the performance that Jay-Z did at a Glastonbury festival, the one with the "Sunday, Bloody Sunday" sample, and I thought it kicked ass.

musically, the mjb version of one is closer to how it's been played live and is mildly more enjoyable until it gets awfully oversung.

and there's nothing hip hop about it, unless you consider having a black woman singing is hip hop.

Yeah, I'd call it more R&B than hip hop.

U2 should be grateful to this Lee

on the most popular show on TV (Amer. Idol)

most young people don't lister to Classic Rock stations.

Likely cause it's, you know, U2 actually playing live on it?

Oh, yeah, because a black woman is singing it (But for the record and perhaps unrelated, she is known as the queen of hiphop-soul, fyi)

Check the rhythm section of the songs I listed from AB, One included. The influences are clearly there. Has little if anything to do with the singing or the lyrics.

oh wow, i didn't know it was u2 performing on that track because i'm completely retarded.

cool thanks, i had no idea who mary j blige is. i just saw black person and thought hip-hop. no, wait. that's not what happened.

and it's still not hip-hop, neither are the other tracks you mentioned. as has been said by more than just me, i can buy into it being closer to r&b.
