The music legend, 55, sported a sheer, embroidered top over a white gown. She was nominated for Best New Age Album for her eighth studio album, Dark Sky Island. However, she lost out on the award — which was announced prior to the televised Grammy ceremony — to White Sun for their album White Sun II.
The “Sailaway” singer (real name: Enya Patricia Brennan) hasn’t been nominated for a Grammy in 10 years. She has previously won Best New Age Album four times for 2007’s Amarantine, 2002’s A Day Without Rain, 1997’s The Memory of Trees and 1993’s Shepherd Moons.
The Grammys marks a rare appearance for the usually reclusive musician, who rarely performs in public. Enya – who debuted her first, self-titled album in 1986 — made headlines last April when a report from The Sun offered new details about her private life. According to the newspaper, she lives in a castle near Dublin with her cats and a few staff members, rarely visits relatives and even bans herself from listening to music to avoid outside influences on her work.
