Sweden's prestigious Polar Music Prize was presented Monday to B.B. King for his contribution to the blues, and to Gyoergy Ligeti for his innovations in classical music.

King, being honored for his role in spreading the blues, the forerunner of modern popular music, and his significant contribution to the genre, accepted his prize from Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf at the Stockholm Concert Hall, which is also where the Nobel Prize ceremony took place.

Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page was in attendance to introduce B.B. King.
