U2’s Bono and the Edge first appeared at tonight’s Grammys awards as part of the Kendrick Lamar opening number, and they appeared later on in the night in a pre-taped segment to perform their Songs Of Experience team-up “Get Out Of Your Own Way.” The band played on a barge in the middle of the Hudson River in front of the Statue Of Liberty, and were introduced by Camila Cabello, who talked about her experience being a Cuban-American. Towards the end of the song, Bono ad-libbed a reference to President Trump’s recent racist comments, saying “Blessed are the shithole countries” into a megaphone, which was bleeped out of the live airing. Watch the performance below.
