How rock'n'roll is Jimmy Fallon ?
How talented are The Roots? 
When Bono's cycling accident meant the band couldn't make their residency on The Tonight Show this week, one thing was sure, as Jimmy told viewers: 'The Show Must Go On...'
They came up with the next best thing: Jimmy Fallon with The Roots performing 'Desire'.
How sensational is this performance?

Congrats, Jimmy!!
You just showed how to make lemons into lemonade. You and the Roots did a fantastic job on short notice! Can't wait to see what you have planned for the rest of the week.

Indeed!!!
When you mix together the talent of The Roots with Jimmy and of course the "Cherry on Top", which is the U2 song. The result is an awesome performance!!!
