Bono and The Edge Spice Up 'American Idol' Finale With 'Spider-Man' Performance

The Spider-Man Broadway musical, for which they composed the music, has been delayed numerous times due to numerous complications and a series of continuous changes to the director, the plot, the cast, the safety requirements, and the music.

Considering that U2 is known for their fabulous live performances and incredible tours, Bono and The Edge could help this American Idol finale be the biggest and best one yet.

Then again, Bono has recently admitted that he agrees with the New York Times' criticism of the musical, and that the play kind of sucks. If Bono, of all people, isn't confident with the work he's been producing, then maybe this live Idol performance won't be up to par like a lot of viewers and fans are expecting it to be.
