U2 to Perform on American Idol Finale

May 20, 2011 By:

American Idol just got cooler! Bono and U2 are set to perform songs from their Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” on the season finale of Idol.

They’re also hoping to get some of the performers from the theatre show on stage to join them at the season finale, which is split over two episodes next week.

A source said: "They are talking to Fox about how it would work. Ideally, Bono and The Edge would perform and be joined on stage by the 'Spider-Man' cast.

"If everyone agrees, with millions watching, it could be great for the production."

How great would that be? I’ll admit I’m not much of an Idol fan, but I’ll definitely tune in to watch U2 perform.
