    Spanish opera singer Plácido Domingo will be performing before the World Cup final for a sixth time. Six times? Wow!

    He will sing at Rio de Janeiro's HSBC Arena on July 11, two days before the soccer final at Maracana Stadium.

    The event will also feature pianist Lang Lang, soprano Ana Maria Martinez and the Orquestra Sinfonica Brasileira.

    Before knowing Spain (and Italy) were knocked out of the tournament, Domingo said, "I think they have as many chances as anybody else. There's Italy or Germany – they always smell the success. They are the other two teams that have been so many times champions, and they are ready." We hope he sings in good spirits despite the Spain's inability to advance.

    Will you be watching the World Cup festivities and games? Or do you not care?
