2.20.01 - Launch

(2/20/01, 1 p.m. ET) -- U2 is set to perform at the Grammy Awards tomorrow night (February 21). The band's "Beautiful Day" is up for song and record of the year, and best rock performance by a duo or group with vocal.

U2 frontman Bono told LAUNCH that the band knew "Beautiful Day" was a special song that people would relate to right from the beginning. "It seemed to lift everyone up when we listened to it. There was a kind of ordinary despair about the verse, you know? It wasn't like a Popsicle. It's an interesting idea, I think as well, that you can lose everything, lose a relationship, lose your possessions, lose everything and... It's just a nice thought to plant that sometimes when people are right at the bottom is when they really discover who they are and what they're capable of."
