U2, Mary J, and The Grammy Awards

U2, The Greatest Band – EVER

That’s right, U2 went 5 for 5. They won a total of 5 Grammy Awards last night.

  • Album of the Year: “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb,” U2.
  • Song of the Year: “Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own,” U2
  • Rock Album: “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb,” U2.
  • Rock Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal: “Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own,” U2.
  • Rock Song: “City of Blinding Lights, U2, (U2).

That’s a total of 22 for their career.

In case you missed U2 performing at the Grammy’s last night, here is a clip of their performance (the volume may be a tad bit high). They started off with Vertigo, and then played One with Mary J Blige.

I would probably rate the performance a very strong B+. But you have to hand it to them, they don’t lip-synch and they give it their all.

One with Mary J was interesting. It was good and all, but I tend to think that she over sings at times. There was one moment when she was trying to grab Bono’s hand, and it looked like Bono was trying to pull his hand away so he can play the guitar. What I really really liked about the performance was the word ‘One’ being displayed in numerous languages during the performance.

And if you haven’t seen my U2 Vertigo concert pics, just click here.

This is one of the pics.

    I’m sure it’s my age….this is not my favorite genre of music, although I THINK the message is good. Could not understand all that was sung, but that could be age also. This group must be doing something right…they won. MToots

    Maybe I expect too much, but the performances at the Grammy’s were horrid. Probably the worst rendition of ONE by U2 that I have ever heard. Bono’s voice was trailing, and the band just didn’t seem into it. They are a great band, but I’d give them a strong C for both performances last night.

  4. the problem I have with them is that I expect greatness 99% of the time and forget that they are human. his voice does trail as of some of his performances I have heard as of late, especially when they were on conan. maybe that is what touring does to a person’s voice
