it looked like he pushed her arm away when she tried to grab his hand, and pull away from her a couple of times and had a very annoyed look on his face during the end...

what was that all about? they're talking about it over at u2.com now, too. hmm.

When I watched their performance together for the first time, it crossed my mind that he might be a bit smothered/perturbed... but I think this is largely because he's not used to sharing the vocals.

He wasn't pissed at all.

He put his hand out first, she didn't grab it at first then she finally did. He then suddenly pulled it back to play guitar, then at the end held it again.

But I have to say the few threads I've seen of yours Matt, your observations are very amusing.

No I think Bono was lost in thought. Deep thought about how he used to once put heart into his performances of the song.

Maybe it was her "I'm being electrocuted" style of dancing?

Apparently it isn't just me. Others are commenting on it now, too. So, um... isn't just my supposed conspiracy theories. It was a simple observation that stood out to me right away.

But I am very happy that you find it amusing. I'm really charming the ladies (and guys) here, aren't I? LOL!!!

I don't think anybody was pissed at anybody. I think they were really into the song and the performance. They both greatly admire each other.

Plus, they share a deep faith. I think they see it as a worshipful/spiritual thing. I think that's why Mary was crying at the end. She just got caught up into it all emotionally. Bono seemed to to at one point.

but it also seemed like when she was leaning her head against his, that he was pulling away, annoyed.

If anything, she should have been pissed at Bono for butchering his band's own song...just awful.

I thought it was a great, moving performance. You'll be hearing good things about it in the media today, I promise.

I laughed when I saw that. Bono was not pulling his hand back on purpose, Mary unexpectedly went to grab Bono's hand, and Bono was going to strum his guitar at the same time. Later they joined hands.

it didn't seem like he was angry to me, but if he was he had good reason - she sucked

It seemed to me the only irritation he had was that he was trying to play and she was grabbing him...that's all I thought the performance was fantastic
