Stevie Wonder to perform Dick Clark tribute at American Music Awards -- EXCLUSIVE

This year’s American Music Awards will be the first without its founder Dick Clark. But America’s eternal teenager will still be there in spirit — and in song.

Stevie Wonder will be performing a special tribute to Clark at this Sunday’s live ceremony, Dick Clark Productions has announced. The tribute will be introduced by Ryan Seacrest.

“He was a mentor, friend and a wonderful advocate for popular music,” Seacrest said of Clark in a statement. “It’s only fitting that one of music’s legends, Stevie Wonder, will play at Sunday’s tribute.”

Clark, of course, formed the American Music Awards back in 1973 as a means of competing with the Grammys. Wonder himself has snagged 11 AMAs over the years.

“Without a Dick Clark,” AMA producer Larry Klein says, “our entire current musical repertoire might be classical in nature. Not that there’s anything wrong with classical music, but Clark helped Beethoven roll over and tell Tchaikovsky the news.”

Carly Rae Jepsen, Katy Perry win big at Much Music Awards

Oh, Canada. It’s sometimes easy to forget all the great things you’ve given us here south of your border. There’s Justin Bieber, of course, and also Ryan Gosling. And who could forget about poutine? Poutine!

Now, another great reminder: The MuchMusic Video Awards, generally considered Canada’s equivalent of the MTV Video Music Awards. It’s perhaps no big surprise that Carly Rae Jepsen came out the big winner at last night’s ceremony, nabbing three major awards.

(Fun fact: Josh Ramsay, the frontman of pop-punkers Marianas Trench, who took home several prizes as well, produced “Call Me Maybe.” Synergy!)

Katy Perry also won the “UR Fave” trophy for International Artist or Group and the International Video of the Year prize, beating out the likes of Adele, One Direction, Rihanna, and LMFAO.
