VIDEO: Michael Johns and Carly Smithson Sing U2

The daytime talk divas are really going all out this week, eh? On yesterday's Ellen, which was filmed in Chicago, former Idol contestants Michael Johns and Carly Smithson gave an exclusive performance, singing a duet version of the U2 classic "One." This was much more fun than the 'repeat performances' we get during their press tour, and it's safe to say Michael Johns, in particular, would have made Bono proud with this one. — Gina DiNunno read more

Bono by John Stanton/WireImage.com

We’ve decided that when Bono puts his mind to something, good things happen. The result this time? U23D. The Irish rock stars have taken their God-like status to the next level by bringing their music not just to film, but to three dimensional film (complete with the glasses). So what are they calling this at their Sundance premiere? The first “live-action 3D concert documentary.” Quite frankly, giving everybody a “front row seat” is their best idea yet considering tickets tend to sell out in 3.2 minutes (not that we’re bitter we got shut out of their last tour or anything). Watch it now! | More online videosYour take: Any U2 fans/haters care to weigh in on this film release? Good, bad, indifferent? read more
