Dick Clark at the 32nd AMAs: 'There's Nothing Like Live Television'

In 2004, "Extra" interviewed the late TV host Dick Clark as he was preparing for the 32nd Annual "American Music Awards."
When asked about his emotions surrounding the evening, he said, "Every year is exciting because the musical ingredients change and you never know what's going to happen… it's like going through a fight and coming out alive, you emerge. There is nothing like live television.”  

When asked about the first "American Music Awards" of 1973, the TV icon said, "We had a 90-minute show and I was scared to death because we had never done an awards show, but we put things in that award show that have been copied by everybody ever since."
