Stevie Wonder is on deck to perform a tribute to late TV icon Dick Clark at Sunday's American Music Awards. And organizers are promising it will be a tribute that won't soon be forgotten. AMA producer Larry Klein said in a statement that Wonder's performance "is going to be talked about for years to come." Klein says our entire musical repertoire might still be classical in nature if it wasn't for Dick Clark. He says the American Music Awards creator and "American Bandstand" host "helped Beethoven roll over and tell Tchaikovsky the news." Ryan Seacrest will introduce the Wonder-led tribute to Clark who died in April at the age of 82.
Stevie Wonder joins Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Linkin Park, Psy, Carrie Underwood and others on the performance roster for the 40th Anniversary American Music Awards presentation. ABC will televise the ceremony live on Sunday, November 18th, starting at 8:00 pm Eastern.
