Bono and The Edge to Perform in American Idol Finale?
While there’s no question that next week’s American Idol results finale will be AMAZING, even at this late date there’s still some question as to who will be providing the amazing-ness. So far, Lady Gaga is scheduled to perform, which hands down would meet any single episode’s quota for epic awesome. And now we’re hearing that Bono and The Edge of U2 will make an appearance and possibly will perform. Wow.
As of now, Idol producers and U2 reps are still hashing out how Bono and The Edge will appear, but one thing is for certain: They will be in the finale in some capacity to promote their beleaguered Broadway show, Spider-man: Turn Off the Dark. One Idol insider told the New York Post, "They are talking to FOX about how it would work. Ideally, Bono and The Edge would perform and be joined onstage by the Spider-Man cast… [But] it is still very preliminary... Idol producers know they could get many top acts on the finale. It has to be what works best for their show."
