SNL is inundated with too much New York lefty politics for this dude.

Liked it!  The megaphone is so BONO.

He has 'megaphone continuity'. At Trafalgar Square he had the European model and at SNL he had the Stars and Stripes.

(insert Brexit joke here)

It was their worst performance on SNL.

It was the first time the band didn't receive a standing ovation.

Back in 2000...U2 changed the way television and audiences interacted, they broke the 3rd wall and interacted with the people watching on TV, much like the infamous "Live Aid" achievemant.

Even after all these years, I still believe "Elevation" was their best televised performance.

Much like most here, it appears to be a disappointment.

Granted the show itself hasn't been good in a decade or even two; but it's still important for viewers (and the media) in the U.S.

It wasn't cheesy or corny...it just appeared underwhelming or unforgettable.

I enjoyed their SNL performance. However, that Elevation performance was a MOMENT. You could feel the energy come through your TV screen. Even the audio recording leaps out at you.
