Bono performs a duet with Halsey (with Herbie Hancock on piano) about the 2016 year in review!

Afterwards, Bono is interviewed by Jimmy and talks about some of the great work (RED) does to fight AIDS, recalls riding a bike in Central Park with the winners of his Omaze experience last year and shares the details of the Omaze experience U2 is offering this year to help raise money for (RED).

Then, Julia Roberts talks about her friendship with Bono and discusses the Omaze experience they're offering up to help raise money for (RED)'s fight against AIDS.

Finally, the people at Jimmy Kimmel Live created a special song for their special (RED) show to help the fight against AIDS. The song features Jimmy, Bono, Julia Roberts, Kristen Bell, DJ Khaled, The Killers, Channing Tatum, Neil Patrick Harris and Halsey.

Also, Bono reprised his role as Mephisto!

At this year's Glamour Women of the Year Awards, U2 (or, as Amy Poehler called it, "ooh-too") frontman Bono received our first-ever Man of the Year honor, which he recognized is "a bit ridiculous." But he took that ridiculous moment to address some absolutely un-ridiculous topics: the role men have played in creating sexism, the role they must play in its dismantling, and the many women who have inspired him to be a better ally to women and, therefore, a better man. And yes, he read some mean tweets.

In her introduction, Amy Poehler (whom Bono called, "your Poehlerness") compared Bono to the supermoon: a light in the darkness and a man she could point to as a role model for her two young boys. Here is Bono's acceptance speech in full. They're aptly--and, rightfully--addressed to women and men alike, especially to those who, like Bono, enjoy power and privilege. Watch the video and read the complete transcript below.

Check out a couple of video clips we found of Adam and The Edge at the Q Awards in London from Wednesday.

The Edge and Adam Clayton talked about playing out live, other bands and even mentioned a sneaky new way of releasing the new album in an interview after the Q Awards show ended:

Here's one more video clip of The Edge and Adam discussing their history with live music venues and Les Paul guitars:

U2 have picked up two prizes at this year's Q Awards - the most out of any act nominated.

Story by UTV Ireland Staff, Dublin

The Irish rockers were awarded the Best Live gong at The Roundhouse in London on Wednesday, as well as the band's guitarist The Edge picking up the Gibson Les Paul award.

Elsewhere, The 1975 beat the likes of Coldplay, Bastille and the late David Bowie as they took the prize for Best Album.

Bowie was posthumously honoured with the nomination for his final album Blackstar, but the accolade went to The 1975's record I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It.

The band, who missed out on the three other awards for which they were nominated, were unable to attend the ceremony due to being on tour, and instead sent a thank-you video message.

Singer-songwriter James Bay took the gong for Best Solo act, fending off competition from the likes of Noel Gallagher and Mercury Prize winner Skepta, and newcomer Jack Garratt walked away with the Breakthrough Act award.

It was a strong night for rock groups Muse and Bastille, as they won the Best Act in the World Today and Best Track awards respectively.

Glamour magazine has been criticised for naming U2 frontman Bono on its annual Women of the Year list.

BBC News

The magazine said he was the first man to be included on the list because of his campaigning for women's rights.

Bono said he was "sure he didn't deserve it" but the battle for gender equality couldn't be won "unless men lead it along with women".

He is on a list that also includes Gwen Stefani, actress and campaigner Zendaya and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles.

Bono said he was "grateful" for the honour and said men were "largely responsible for the problem, so we have to be involved in the solutions".

He's one of the most outspoken and effective advocates for women and girls I know.... As an activist, he's using those skills to get the world talking about the fact that ending extreme poverty begins with empowering women and girls." --Melinda Gates, philanthropist and 2013 Woman of the Year

By Christiane Amanpour

When humanitarian and rock icon Bono learned that he was being honored by Glamour as the first-ever Man of the Year, he called his wife of 34 years, Ali Hewson, to give her the news. "I asked did she think I deserved it. She wasn't sure," Bono tells me with a laugh. "She said I've work to do!"

U2's front man has no doubts. "I'm sure I don't deserve it," he says. "But I'm grateful for this award as a chance to say the battle for gender equality can't be won unless men lead it along with women. We're largely responsible for the problem, so we have to be involved in the solutions."

I'm on Glamour's side: I think Bono is the perfect choice for this first-time honor because, now 56, he's been trying to do good for as long as he's been making music. I first met Bono, born Paul David Hewson, in Sarajevo over New Year's 1996, shortly after peace accords ended the Bosnian civil war that November. It was the first time in four years that the guns were silent and the people of that beautiful city could celebrate by taking to the concert halls and cafés. I got pulled into a crowded car one night, heading for a party, and there was Bono. Our two-decade humanitarian friendship was launched.

U2 and the late David Bowie are among the nominees for this year's Q Awards, presented by the British music magazine.

Bono and company received nominations in two categories: Best Live Act and Best Act in the World Today.

Bowie, meanwhile, earned a nod in the Best Album category for Blackstar, which was released two days before the music icon died this past January.

Other Q Awards nominees include Coldplay, Beyonce and Muse.

The 2016 Q Awards will be held November 2 in London. Visit QtheMusic.com for the full list of nominees and to vote for your favorites.

Check out Adam Clayton's interview on St. Patrick's University's pop-up station: Walk in My Shoes Radio. Adam appears around the 1:08:50 mark in the 2 hour radio show and talks for about 10 minutes. The radio station in Dublin will only be in existence until this Friday, the 14th!

Clayton discussed his passion for running (as opposed to using treadmills), as well as his thoughts on mental wellness and his history with substances:

"There is nothing that I miss about drugs and alcohol that a sober life hasn't given me ten fold. I love my life now."

Regarding new album plans, Adam dropped a few hints at what is happening in the studio. He said:

"We've been working on a record and we've been humming and hawing on whether it's finished or not. We've decided it's not finished -- we're going to work up until Christmas. I wish we were a little bit more definite about our scheduling because people have been expecting it. But it'll be out next year -- maybe March/April. That's the plan, but I'm not confirming it."

Adam was also no fan of Donald Trump when he said:

"He seems to be a very strange man."
