Oh.My.God. I had a semi-religious experience this weekend as U2 appeared on "Saturday Night Live." They were awesome. Just awesome. I stared in rapt attention during their performances and then my sister and I called each other to squeal and basically make excited gleaping, gurgling sounds at one another since we were too worked up to form actual words.
The band performed three songs on-camera and apparently a few more after the show went off the air. One of the best parts was seeing the SNL cast members having conniptions from excitement as they watched the band. Bono hugged Amy Pohler and Maya Rudolph was so excited she was crying. I am with ya, sister.
The whole band looked cool, even after being together since 1979 and their sound was just so tight. They really do rock. Their album comes out Tuesday. GLEEEP!
