U2 Grammy Performance

Has this already been posted? If so just tag it onto the thread.

I just saw an add for this show this morning. It's to be on CBS friday evening, and they show clips of the band singing beautiful day. it doesn't say it will show it entirely, but if you want to catch a glimpse of the boys, tune on friday eve. looks like there will be a lot of good performances to watch anyways. here's some info and the link.

Grammy's - 50th Anniversary
This year is the 50th anniversary of the GRAMMYS and CBS is celebrating by asking you to build the show you want to see. The votes are in and the show is now set to screen the clips you think represent some of the best moments from GRAMMY's history.

Thanks for posting this, thankyou (is that redundant? HAHA!). Unfortunately, every time I try to watch the video clip of U2's performance, it shuts down my internet. I'll try again later!

so watch them tonight, at 8pm eastern 7pm central, on cbs. they keep showing the band performing in two different clips (beautiful day and sometimes you can't make it on your own) . i'm thinking they'll probably be showing them doing one of them.

it was pretty nice, they showed beautiful day performance and explained how bono lost his sound and just had to wing it for awhile there. they started the show out with the boys being interviewed (bono and edge only), and singing beautiful day. they were interviewed a couple of times, Bono wearing no shades. they were also mentioned a couple of times, that they had sung "sometimes you can't make it on your own" and that U2 had a magnificent night the night of the 1988 grammy's before the performance by michael jackson.

not bad, they got mentioned way more than i thought they would be. it was great to see the band back in the 2001 era.



hope everybody caught the show! watching the other performances were also pretty awesome. loved the clash tribute. i'm still surprised though that number one was green day. i really like the band, but i thought the grammy's would go for a more nostalgic number one.

ps: doesn't it seem like Bono should have been singing in that Clash tribute? or at least The Edge playing the guitar? or am i just a little bit U2 biased??


for those who want to take a trip back in time, U2 receiving their grammy for the Joshua Tree Album: (very funny!)



(adam gets lost!)

yeah the band was on alot more than i expected.
it was nice to see them recently too!
i was bummed that green day was number 1, i mean theyre okay but personally i didnt like the american idiot album.
i LOVED the clash tribute! it was pretty sweet. yeah I think Edge should have been up there instead of...dave grohl.
the jt speech is priceless
and when eric took best album in 93 i couldnt help but cringe a little.

And let's forget U2's performance of 'Sometimes you can't make on your own' at the 47th Grammys!



This actually is the first time I've seen this, coz although the 47th Grammys were broadcasted here in Finland, but for some reason they didn't show U2s performance! Did U2 perform any other song on the show?

Bono performed "Across the universe" with a couple of other artists for the Tsunami relief at the end of the show.

I LOVE the performance of Sometimes, gives me shivers.

Could you tell me which link that was? thanks

Part seven:
U2 is toward the end of this part. What show was B talking about in the beginning of the interview ? There's a bit of BD, and I LOVE the way he does it at the end. Bonus, little bit of shadeless B.
Eh, nice voice takeoverlover, but wanted to hear more of the interview.

Yeah, I hope someone can upload the parts with B & E interview without the annoying voice-overs and in better quality. But Bono shadeless is so cute!
