American Idol had tons of performers on its finale last night, but the only one I had any real interest for were Bono, The Edge and Reeve Carney performing ‘Rise Above’ from Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

Ok, I did stop and watch Jack Black and the 22 year old guy with the Grizzly Adams beard sing.

The show, in its original form, was awful and out of 10/15 songs in the show, Rise Above was the only one I loved or even remembered.

Did you like it? I did. Especially the opening with Spider-Man flying around and The Edge killing it on guitar. Maybe I’m a sucker, but I’ll definitely be in the audience to see the show when I’m back in NYC in a couple of weeks.

If you didn’t get a chance to see it last night, check it out below!

    I thought the Spider Man flying around stuff was pretty cool. The song felt kind of like the one that U2 did for Batman way back. (the Val Kilmer one). I was kind of medium on the actual song.

  3. Yeah and I definitely liked the opening minute. The song sounded a bit different than the one that was in the actual show. At least I think it did. It feels like a million years since I’ve seen it.
