U2 performed "Ordinary Love" and it was seriously electric. Bono sings with passion and emotion as if he were telling a story to the world through music. “Ordinary Love” was written by the group for “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” and is nominated for Original Song. U2’s exclusive Oscar performance will be the first time the band will perform the song live.

U2 has sold more than 150 million records worldwide since its formation in 1976. The group has won 22 Grammy® Awards—more than any other band—and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, its first year of eligibility. The band’s 110-show, 26-month U2360° tour, which ended in July 2011, played to over 7 million fans in 30 countries on 5 continents and was the highest-grossing concert tour of all time. The band is currently in the studio working on a new album.

U2 - BRAVO for a beautiful and emotional performance. Standing Ovation well deserved.

And the three other nominated songs are “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2,” “Let It Go” from “Frozen” and “The Moon Song” from “Her.”
