If there's a band best known for using their platform for the greater good, it's U2!
The Irish rock band have been changing lives with their music for the past three decades — but they've also changed millions of lives with their activism!
The Beautiful Day performers have started several world changing charities. Bono's ONE Campaign is fighting poverty in Africa and Product Red is aiming to eliminate HIV/AIDS!
So it's no surprise that the band took home the Innovator Award at the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards!
When Bono and The Edge took the stage to collect their trophy, the frontman hoped for a brighter future — and made sure to call out Donald Trump and his supporters for the ridiculous violence occurring at his rallies! Ouch!
Ch-ch-check out the shady moment in an otherwise inspiring speech (above)!
The country star gave her husband of six years a big smooch rink side as the 35-year-old was celebrated by the Nashville Predators with a silver hockey stick, a framed photo collage depicting his 16-year career, and a Tiffany crystal from the NHL.
But who really stole the show? The couple's one-year-old son Isaiah, of course!
The little cutie looked up at his gorgeous parents from his mom's arms — wearing his dad's jersey, no less — for a truly picture-perfect moment. So sweet!!!
Tons of musicians including Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, Bono, and more got together to film a congratulatory video montage for Mike — and in it, Carrie gushes about her husband's dedication to the sport:
"I'm so proud of you for so many reasons. Specifically tonight I'm proud of you because I know how hard you work at everything you do and how much dedication you have towards hockey and towards this team. And I just think you're the best."

What an emotional night for the Eagles of Death Metal.
On Monday night, U2 performed alongside EODM at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, the band's FIRST performance since the devastating terror attacks that occurred last month. Needless to say, the collaboration was incredibly moving and inspiring.
Lead singer Bono introduced the band with a simple yet sweet tribute, saying:
"They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago and we would like to offer them ours tonight."
So special. We're glad the rockers weren't alone for their first performance following the tragedy.
Check out EODM's post on the transformative experience (below):
Taking part in a star-studded event that celebrated the work of the ONE and (RED) organizations in pushing for more resources to fight AIDS, it seems as though Miley-bird was happy to be there.
In fact, she even told the audience:
"I just turned 23. And I know I will live in an AIDS-free world."
But the pop star might have been a bit too excited, because when she started singing with the U2 frontman and Jessie J, she kind of forgot the words to the rock band's pinnacle charity anthem One!
Bono brought out Jessie to sing the first verse of the song — but when Miley came out to sing the second verse, it was clear that she was a little rusty on the lyrics!
Barry Manilow is quite the catchy songwriter, but crafting such jingles requires a glamorous muse for inspiration!
Enter Scarlett Johansson!
The Hail, Caeser! actress and the Copacabana singer made a pitch perfect pair in a holiday jingle written in support of Bono's (RED) campaign!
At the request of Jimmy Kimmel, Manilow penned a song for a huge holiday shopathon where all the proceeds go towards eradicating AIDS!
Even though the music legend changes his mind on a few lyrics throughout the song, ScarJo sings the tune with peppy perfection!
Ch-ch-check out the festive jingle (below) and CLICK HERE to find out more about the (RED) Shopathon!
U2's tour is back on track!
After the tragic terror attacks in Paris earlier this month, the Irish rock band cancelled their performances scheduled for the following weekend.
Instead, the Beautiful Day chart-toppers paid tribute to the victims lost at the memorial outside the Bataclan theater.
But the show must go on — U2 has rescheduled their Paris shows on the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour for December 6 and 7 at the Accorhotels Arena in Bercy!
Frontman Bono released the following statement about the tour's continuation:
In the wake of tragic terrorist attacks that struck Paris on Friday night, the world of entertainment changed its plans.
From blockbuster movie premieres to TV show rescheduling to concert cancellations, here's how show business was affected.
On Sunday, Lionsgate announced it planned to scale back the El Lay premiere of the Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 on Monday night.
The studio said in a statement:
