    Posting this again here for those interested that won't check the other thread:

    The performance was fun!! They also played Bleed It Out and New Divide on a whim. Everyone wanted to here Crawling but Mike said he didn't have his guitar with him so they couldn't play it. He started to play Wretches and Kings and said "can't play that either". He also started playing the beat to When They Come For Me and he said "Not that one either." All in all it was a fun show!

    I actually like that version of the Catalyst better for some reason? I kinda like how they took the long minute of instruments out of the last half. I think thats how they should have made the radio edit

    You know, for being cut to shreds like it was, I was actually really impressed with the crafting of that performance. They really looked larger than life and I don't think I've ever heard Chester and Mike sound better on stage. Mike's vocals really took me by storm. I also have to hand it to Rob's drumming. I become more and more impressed with him by the album.

    It does suck that the song was reduced to barely four minutes, but the first live attempt at a new song sounded a lightyears better than their early AOL sessions for Minutes to Midnight.

    If Warner got what they wanted and made Linkin Park have a 3 minute single, that would would be the catalyst's studio version.

    Posting this here because it seems this has replaced the other thread. Again if this is NOT ALLOWED please delete it mods. This is the STANDARD video, the HD is not done processing. This is a 25.7 MB .mp4 video rip processed in Sony Vegas. Hosted on RapidShare. I've sent this to Joe and Derek. Feel free to share this and re-host unless the mods decide otherwise.

    Dunno, the wife and her friend are still replaying other stuff on the HD DVR so I'm trying to work with the first cut I got in Vegas and I'm thinking I may need to re-convert it. I had an HD version up on YouTube, but Viacom took it down twice, trying to find another host and see what I can pull off, the size is much bigger. LPA will be the first to have it if I can pull it off.

    Lol I don't think it's too sad considering MTV's general audience and the fact that Justin Bieber has a shelf life of about 2 years. What've you heard from the Jonas Brothers lately?

    Quite sad I had to sit out through Justin Bieber but it was worth it. Great performance.

    Also is it just me or the double effect of mike singing whole time is joe is backing mike? Cause from shots I didn't see Brad and Phoenix but I saw Joe singing at same time.

    Am I the only one to notice that Mike sang God save us everyone..... instead of God bless us everyone....... at the end of the song :p
    Not a really big thing but still. All in all, Great performance! I didn't think it would sound this good live :D
    After a bit of practice, I'm sure it will only get better.

    I'm not surprised Joe did the main back up vocals since his voice is the closest to Mike's.

    Shit. Never mind.

    I have no idea why, but I loved Mike's singing in the song - even though it was not perfect. I also like his haircut.
    Chester....what the fuck was he doing. Not a fan of his wardrobe at the current time, :lol:

    I might've commented on his wardrobe if I hadn't sat through an hour of some of the worst fashion I've seen since Bjork at the Academy Awards. Chester looked normal in comparison.
