U2SJ, if you're in Mountain or Pacific time, you'll get it 'tape delayed' but this telethon ROCKS! They've had some AWESOME acts on this thing: Bruce, U2, Neil Young, Billy Joel, Enrique, and two wonderful young women who sang like angels but I have no idea who they are! (showing my age, sorry). Oh, and I think it was Limp Bizkit that played Pink Floyd's "Wish You were Here"? Whoever it was, they were GREAT as well. You guys will enjoy it...Hope they release this telethon on CD (which, I'm assuming they will - it'll definitely make big bucks!).

Happy viewing!

You west coast girls are in for a treat! The guys look so good, even though it's black and white, like the video screens at the concert. Bono is so beautiful! No shades!

Bono and Bruce on the same show??? Are they trying to kill me????????

Seriously, some amazing performances. Billy was terrific and New York State of Mind, of course, was a perfect choice.

Bruce's grief and raaaaaaaaggggee were brutal and fierce and powerful. White hot performance. Sheer emotion.

Bono was great-- boys thanks for joining us. "Hello from London"-- that was perfect. I felt like a got a hug from a friend across the ocean. Can we say solidarity? I also loved how he started Peace on Earth and then went into Walk On as if to say, "Enough despair and mourning, rebuild! walk on!" They sounded right on, flawless as always. Is it me or do they actually sound BETTER live??

Come on RISE UP my city of ruins!

That performance was great!! I only saw part of it though, because I coincidently switched it onto VH1 exactly when U2 was on. I live on the west coast, so it will com on again at 9:00!

I just donated money also...I think we should all think about doing that. I mean, that IS the point of the telethon!

I was hoping a celebrity would answer the phone. *Brad Pitt perhaps!!*

I just saw it, I think it was one of their best performances! It seemed to me to be very, very emotional... I loved it.

I have a question for all of you guys: Was Morleigh doing the backing vocals next to Natalie Imbruglia or was it just my imagination?

That woman did look an awful lot like her...I wonder. Now that we have the 2nd guitarist thing straightened out, we have a new puzzle to solve. lol

Great performance, guys!!!

I taped the "What's Going On" vid and then the whole telethon thing for my friend Mary. I watched U2's peformance thrice.

I loved the version of Walk On they did .Also -- "I'm sick of hearing again and again that there's never gonna be peace on earth"

*Bono strums guitar with exceptionally long sleeve*

The whole 'hallelujah' thing was nice. You could tell Bono was really into it. I got kinda emotional once they started Walk On and I started actually crying as soon as Bono was saying "I'll see you when I get home" who was he talking to? His family or maybe his daddy? aaaawwww

I was a slobbering blubbering fool and my mom was like "Are they gonna show the guitar guy again?!" Lol she's in love with Edgey.

WildHonee~ I was wondering the same thing too...I think he says: "Sister, I'll see you when I get home". His long lost sister?


After about the first few lines of Walk On, I cried too. You're not alone! It was such an emotional performance.

His sister? Hm I didn't catch that. Bono, I'll be your sister!!! *swoons at Bono playing guitar*

I thought maybe his family b/c they were taping it in London, so...y'know

Or his daddy...like about dying. I dunno.

Bono stressed -- "WE'VE GOT TO LEAVE IT BEHIND"

It was BRILLIANT that they used One. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen during that segment.

mmmm I'm eating Pop Rocks right now on a break from my college resume. bleeehhh

P.S. During the One segment literally 3 of my friends called to ask me if it was U2. "It sounds like...y'know...that hairy Irish guy?" Lol I was mortified I guess I've made them listen to enough songs where they know Bono's voice. but they were all excited to know YES it was U2!!!!! They all liked the song.
