TAYLOR SWIFT TO RECEIVE FIRST EVER DICK CLARK AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE

TAYLOR SWIFT TO RECEIVE FIRST EVER
DICK CLARK AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE
AT THE 2014 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS®

New Award Will be the AMA’s Highest Honor

Swift Will Open the Show with the World Television Premiere of “Blank Space”

The Show Will Broadcast Live SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd
(8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC

dick clark productions and ABC announced today that Taylor Swift will be presented with the inaugural “Dick Clark Award for Excellence” at the 2014 American Music Awards.  Swift will be recognized for her historical album sales as the only artist in history to have three albums – “Speak Now, “Red” and “1989” — each debuting with more than 1 million sold in their first week. This year, in its first week, “1989” sold 1.287 million copies, making it the highest selling album released in 2014. Swift is the first recipient of the Dick Clark Award for Excellence, given to an artist who achieves a groundbreaking feat or creates a landmark work.  It is to be bestowed upon someone whose spirit and excellence capture the visionary passion that Dick Clark himself incorporated into everything he did.

Clark, the creator of the 42-year-old American Music Awards, influenced popular music in America for six decades. He was known for maintaining a standard of excellence both in the shows he produced and in the talent that he showcased. Simultaneously “America’s Oldest Teenager” and the most trusted name in music, Clark was responsible for the first TV appearances of many superstars including Michael Jackson, Madonna and Prince. Taylor Swift, who also made her debut on a Dick Clark Production show, will be honored with this prestigious award with Clark’s wife, Kari, in the audience, along with a theatre full of stars who grew up on Clark’s programs. This promises to be one of the most significant moments in the rich history of the AMA’s.

“The first time Dick saw Taylor perform, he knew she was something special,” said Kari Clark, wife of the late Dick Clark.  “He would be thrilled to know she is the first artist to receive the Dick Clark Award for Excellence.”

“The American Music Awards most closely reflects Dick Clark’s philosophy of popular music. It provides a platform for the biggest music artists of the day, with the winners voted on by the fans,” said American Music Awards producer Larry Klein.  “Clark always said, ‘Music is the soundtrack of our lives,’ and no one’s recent music has provided a more meaningful soundtrack for the lives of music fans than Taylor Swift.”

Swift will also take to the stage to open the show with the world television premiere performance of her new single “Blank Space”.  She joins a line-up of must-see artists including 5 Seconds of Summer, Mary J. Blige, Garth Brooks, Charli XCX, Fergie, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Imagine Dragons, Jessie J, Lil Wayne, Lorde, Magic!, Nicki Minaj, One Direction, Sam Smith, and the evening’s host, Pitbull.  Additional stars slated to present throughout the evening include Uzo Aduba, Jhene Aiko, Elizabeth Banks, Aloe Blacc, Lauren Cohan, Gavin DeGraw, Ansel Elgort, Jamie Foxx, Becky G, Brantley Gilbert, Danai Gurira, Lucy Hale, Ella Henderson, Julianne Hough, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Kira Kazantsev, Heidi Klum, Mary Lambert, Rose McGowan, Danica McKellar, Pat Monahan, Olivia Munn, Kevin O’Leary, Pentatonix, Tracee Ellis Ross, Taylor Schilling and Meghan Trainor. The 2014 American Music Awards will broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd (8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC.  Additional performers and presenters will be announced soon.

Taylor Swift is the only artist in history to have three million-selling weeks (2010’s Speak Now, 2012’s RED and 2014’s 1989) and the only artist to have two singles hit No. 1 on Billboards HOT 100 Chart this year. Taylor is a global superstar and seven-time GRAMMY winner, and the youngest winner in history of the music industry’s highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. She is the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 in the U.S. with three consecutive studio albums. Taylor has an album on Rolling Stone’s prestigious The 50 Greatest Albums of All Time (by women) list, Time magazine has named her one the of the 100 Most Influential People in the world, and she is Billboard’s youngest-ever Woman of the Year and the only artist to have been awarded this honor twice. Taylor has career record sales in excess of 30 million albums and more than 80 million song downloads worldwide, and has had singles top both the pop and country radio charts around the globe. Taylor’s album RED, released two years ago, sold more than 1.2 million copies in the U.S. in its first week. The only other album to sell more than RED was her critically acclaimed fifth studio album, 1989, the highest selling release since 2002 and the only album to go platinum in 2014. 1989 sold almost 1.3 million albums release week topping Billboard’s Top 200 charts and iTunes’ sales charts in 95 countries on its release. 1989 has sold almost three million copies globally and tops Billboard Top 200 for a third week.  “Shake It Off,” the first single from 1989, topped Billboard’s Pop, HotAC and Hot 100 charts and has earned double Platinum-status by the RIAA for exceeding sales of two million downloads in the U.S.  Her current single “Blank Space,” immediately skyrocketed to the top of the Hot 100 and iTunes chart on its debut.

NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd (8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC.  Additional performers and presenters will be announced soon.

The 2014 American Music Award nominations were announced last month, revealing six nominations for Iggy Azalea–the most of any artist.  Other top contenders include John Legend, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams, who each earned five nominations, and Lorde who earned four.

As always at the American Music Awards, artists will be honored in the genres of Pop/Rock, Country, Rap/Hip-Hop, Soul/R&B, Alternative Rock, Adult Contemporary, Latin, Contemporary Inspirational, Electronic Dance Music, as well as categories for Top Soundtrack, New Artist of the Year Presented by Kohl’s, Artist of the Year and Single of the Year.

Sightings: Justin Bieber, Kylie Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, French Montana, Kendrick Lamar, Puff Daddy and More at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, May 2-3

Entertainment icon Justin Bieber checked in to Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas with a group of friends on Friday, May 2. The singer and company relaxed in a poolside cabana, enjoyed a late lunch from the world-renowned restaurant Nobu Las Vegas in his suite and ate dinner at the property’s premier dining destination 35 Steaks + Martinis. Bieber took to his Twitter and Instagram accounts to post a photo of himself on his balcony overlooking the Las Vegas Strip saying “my view from @HardRockHotelLV.”

 

On Saturday, May 3, reality TV starlet of E!’s hit series “Keeping up with the Kardashians” Kylie Jenner checked in to the property and was spotted at Breathe Pool, a destination that boasts a 360-degree view of the property. Jenner posted a photo of herself on her Twitter account saying “good times at the @HardRockHotelLV getting ready to see @FloydMayweather tonight x” as well as a photo of her and Xavier “Lil Za” Smith at the pool on her Instagram account. Shortly after Jenner left, Bieber stopped by the poolside hangout with model Yovanna Ventura; actor Kyle Massey; rappers Khalil Sharief and Blake Kelly; internet personalities Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor and DeStorm Power; and more. The group took over the exclusive area for the day and enjoyed the luxury of having their own private acrylic-edged pool with three peek-a-boo cutouts in the floor that act as skylight windows to the lower level cafe.

 

Meanwhile at REHAB, chart-topping artist Kendrick Lamar took over the dayclub as he performed “Maad City,” “Backseat” and a few of his other biggest hits. Notable guests included rappers Ab Soul and Jay Rock; professional football players Tim Jennings, Lance Briggs, Jacoby Ford and Mark Ingram, Jr.; professional basketball player Ty Lawson; professional boxer Zabdiel “Zab” Judah; and comedians Katt Williams and Dave Chapelle.

 

That evening, Jenner joined her sister Khloé Kardashian for a late dinner with rappers KarimFrench Montana” Kharbouch and Robert “Meek Mill” Williams at 35 Steaks + Martinis. The group indulged in signature menu items before Kardashian, French Montana and Meek Mill headed over to The Joint for Sean “Puff Daddy” Comb’s fight after party. Both Kardashian and French Montana posted to their Twitter and Instagram accounts about attending the event.

 

Just after 2 a.m., Puff Daddy arrived at The Joint where he hopped on stage with actor Tom Lister, Jr., best known as “Deebo” from the movie Friday, rappers Durk “Lil Durk” Banks and Carlos “King Los” Coleman, and many others to hype up the partygoers. Fans ran over and took photos on their phones as they crowded around the artists. The party officially started when French Montana took center stage and performed his hit songs “Pop That” and “Ocho Cinco” before joining Kardashian back at their table. Additional performances included Puff Daddy singing his new single “Big Homie,” a remix to “Same Damn Time” and the ultimate throwback “It’s All About the Benjamins.” King Los also did an a cappella freestyle and Lil Durk rapped his hit song “Dis Ain’t What U Want.”
