While Irish-American actress Saoirse Ronan held the title as this week's host on Saturday Night Live, fellow Irishmen, U2, rocked the stage as the musical guest on the December 2 episode of the late night sketch comedy show.

Currently promoting their new studio album, Songs of Experience, the rock band performed a live rendition of "American Soul" and the lead single, "Get Out of Your Own Way."

Songs of Experience released on Friday (Dec. 1) and is the 14th studio album from the Irish band.
