Dick Clark – yeah…I cried, too.
Last night, I watched the Daytime Emmy Awards on CBS. Hey, I’ve been a fan of The Young And The Restless since 1980…and proud! Everyone needs a little drama in their lives – as long as it’s not OUR drama. Right?
They honored Dick Clark with live performances from many of the artists who appeared on American Bandstand over the years. Let’s face it- Dick helped launch SO many careers! Finally, Ryan Seacrest (yeah, he was THERE, too) handed the microphone to Dick. I swear, since his stroke, it has been SO inspiring for me to watch Dick Clark speak. He was so overwhelmed by the tribute, he started to cry. I cried, too! I thought you’d enjoy seeing some of this tribute. Grab a Kleenex…
Here’s a montage of clips from American Bandstand:
And, here are the celebrity tributes…along with Dick’s emotional response:
