Just Put It Over There, Next To My Other Millions

Placido Domingo has been awarded the first Birgit Nilsson prize for his "unrivalled contributions to the world of opera". The prize, the largest one in the world of classical music, is $1 million.

Nilsson gave instructions before her death in 2005 for the creation of the award.
Prize officials had kept the name secret for almost a decade after Nilsson gave them a sealed envelope containing Domingo's name as her choice for the first award.

Congrats Maestro Domingo, your contributions are innumerable, including that appearance on The Simpsons.
An award ceremony will occur later this year.
