Watch U2's Electric Performances On "Saturday Night Live"

December 4, 2017

After eight years, U2 made their triumphant return to Saturday Night Live to debut a pair of songs from their new Songs of Experience album with host Saoirse Ronan.

Their first performance of the night was "American Soul" featuring a brief spoken word by rapper Kendrick Lamar. The song is a revamped version of "XXX", a song featuring U2 from Lamar's 2017 album Damn. Closing out the show, the band returned to perform "Get Out of Your Own Way" and Bono finished by reciting Kendrick Lamar's spoken word sermon from "American Soul" through a red, white and blue megaphone.

Watch both performances below!
