We’re not sure if the members of U2 are Team Lauren Alaina or Team Scotty McCreery, but either way, the Irish rockers will be sharing the stage with the pair of American Idol finalists during the Season 10 finale on Wednesday (May 25) night. “[We’ve got] Idol rehearsal tomorrow,” the Billboard Music Award-winning band’s manager Paul McGuinness let slip to Billboard last night. “Maybe that’s supposed to be a secret.” Oops! UPDATE: Billboard now reports that only half of the band — Bono and The Edge — will will appear alongside cast members of the Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

U2 are currently traveling around the States making up for 360° Tour dates they had to cancel last year, due to Bono’s back injury. The band hits up Salt Lake City’s Rice-Eccles Stadium tomorrow night before jetting to L.A. for the Idol finale.
