Bono will spin some line at the end of it to incorporate “Let me in the Sound” into “Let me in the Grammys”.

He'll try to do some improvisation I'm sure like at the Lincoln Memorial show like that.  :D

Not to knock Coldplay right now but I do hope they sound awesome enough to make Coldplay shift in their seats a little. That is all I am saying right now. They need to prove it again they deserved all those 22 grammys and the ones to come next year.....and they can do it ...even with the eyeliner...:)

Why does U2 have to be at competition with Coldplay all the time?

Like it was said in another thread, the song probably needs to be figured out and reworked to play well live.  And yes they're probably sweating bullets rightnow and after all these years you'd think they would be used to it.

Not bad, but something wrong with the sound.   Bono doing alot of the moves from Zoo TV against the video screen.....perhaps a hint as to what they have in store for the tour?   ;D

Good to see the vintage Zoo Station kick during the intro !!

But... the Tv sound doesn't doo justice, I still wanna hear this in a real live show, with their own setup before saying anything.

They looked great (except the Frankenstein boots - honestly!), the energy was great, but the sound wasn't.  It was like Bono couldn't hear the music when he went to the B stage.

Zoo-Two-TV - bring it on!

They're not. For competition there has to be some sort of equivalency between the rivals, whereas Coldplay taking on U2 is the rough equivalent of a Maasai warrior attempting an invasion of every NATO country at once, using nothing but a loincloth and a spork.

From the :30 NLOTH clips I heard the rest of the album seems incredible. Why they even put this lowest common denominator track on the album is beyond me, much less play it at the Grammys. Oh yes, forgot. $. Need to throw Paul McGunie$$ a bone here and there is guess.

As far as a live performance. Coldplay edged them out. And Live, Radiohead has more skills on their fingernails than U2.

I liked their performance quite a bit; it was miles better than Coldplay's awkward performance.
