Coldplay and Jay-Z
Definitely one of the best performances of the night: "Lost" and "Viva La Vida." I love both songs, but like "Lost" a bit more.
"If you succeed prepare to be crucified" ("Lost"). The song reminds us that even when we win ultimately we loose. We all have our scars, and there's no denying that there will be more to come. In this world there will always be pleasure and pain.
And, I love the blending of the two genres. It's been a long time since Run DMC and Aerosmith performed together. If music keeps evolving and blending genres there's no telling what history can be created.
