Irish Music legends Sinéad O’Connor and Shane MacGowan were both honoured at the annual Grammy Awards.

The Grammys are presented by the Recording Academy of the United States to recognise outstanding achievements in the music industry.

Scottish singer Annie Lennox performed a powerful rendition of Nothing Compares 2 U in memory of her friend Sinead O’Connor.

She wore an all-black outfit with a red sacred heart on her sleeve, and she also had a gold tear painted under her eye.

As Annie performed, the faces of stars who had passed away in the last year appeared on screen behind her including Sinéad and Shane MacGowan.

Sinead passed away last July, aged 56, while Shane passed away in November, aged 65.

After she had finished singing, Annie raised her fist in the air and shouted for an end to the war in Gaza.

“Artists for ceasefire, peace in the world,” she proclaimed.

Meanwhile, U2 performed live from a high-tech new immersive venue in Las Vegas during the Grammy Awards ceremony.

Well, that’s not something you see every day!

They sang their track Atomic City live from the Sphere, with Bono briefly interrupting to say: “Hello Los Angeles.”

Hello Bono!
