60th Grammy Awards

During the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, U2 performed “Get Out of Your Own Way” from a barge in front of the Statue of Liberty. As the song ended, Bono referenced Donald Trump’s recent disparaging remarks, shouting, “Blessed are the shithole countries, for they gave us the American Dream.” (It was censored on live TV.) The lines were a variation of Kendrick Lamar’s lyrics from the studio version of the track.  Earlier in the evening, Bono and the Edge participated in Kendrick’s opening performance; they did “XXX.”

Later Bono and Edge  present Bruno Mars with the Grammy for Album of the Year for 24K Magic.
