Musicians Take Over Television

It's been quite the week for avid music fans and television lovers. U2 has been a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman all week and they have managed to get every person in the room on their feet throughout their performances (watch below). I've been to a TV show taping before and it's definitely not conducive to live musical performances, but Bono's energy is so captivating.

Their latest album, No Line On the Horizon was released yesterday and has been receiving mixed reviews. However, like every U2 album, it's the lyrics and fitting musical accompaniment that make the greatest impact. Currently, Amazon is having a special MP3 deal for the album where you can purchase it for $3.99. For fans trying to pinch their pennies, check it out here. And to reminisce about how far they have come, listen to snippets of all their albums over the years on their Web site here. Watch the performance from Monday night on Letterman below.

Meanwhile, country pop songstress Taylor Swift will have a major role on this Thursday's episode of CSI. I keep seeing the previews and it looks very intriguing. The recent Rolling Stone cover girl has certainly had an impressive past year and by the looks of it, her popularity has only just begun. With her first headlining tour coming up this summer, you can bet this girl is here to stay.

Watch the preview of Thursday night's CSI episode below.
