U2 Not On Ameircan Idol

Rumors that U2 would perform on the season finale of American Idol started circulating after a comment by the band's manager last week.  Bono and The Edge appeared on the show Wednesday (5/25), but only to plug the Spider-Man Broadway production the pair has been trying to salvage after several postponements.  The recently revamped musical is slated to have its official opening on June 14. One Rocker did  play on the show.  Sax player Clarence Clemons of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band performed with Lady GaGa's backing band.  Aerosmith members refused to join band mate and A.I. judge Steven Tyler on the wrap-up show. The Aerosmith front man was joined by members of Stone Temple Pilots on an abbreviated version of Dream On
Tyler, attempting to mend fences with his band mates, spent the days leading up to the final episode of the show trying to sell the idea that he hadn't wanted to be a judge on the TV talent show.
