    Carrie Underwood performed Monday night (December 1) as part of U2's surprise World AIDS Day (RED) event in New York City's Times Square by personal invitation from Bono. During the pregnant country star's performance, she was joined on stage by U2's guitarist The Edge. He appeared during her song "Change."

    Bono was not there physically, but he was there in spirit! He was in Ireland, recovering from surgery after a biking accident in NYC, which forced the band to cancel it's The Tonight Show residency.

    The event was to thank America for the role it has played in the AIDS fight. The world has reached the beginning of the end of AIDS epidemic, with 13 million people having access to life-saving treatment compared to 300,000 just 10 years ago. Without the support of American leaders and citizens, it would not have reached this point.

    Watch some of the performances below, including U2 featuring Coldplay's Chris Martin on "Beautiful Day" and "With Or Without You," and Bruce Springsteen handling vocal duties on "Where The Streets Have No Name" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." To make the night even more memorable, the inimitable Kanye West performed a medley of his songs for the Times Square crowd. Lucky people!
