UN Photo/JC McIlwaineStevie Wonder will perform a tribute to Dick Clark on the 40th Anniversary American Music Awards, coming up Sunday, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.  Clark, who passed away in April, created the American Music Awards in 1973.

An 11-time American Music Awards winner, Stevie received his first two awards at the inaugural telecast of the AMA ceremony.  His song "Superstition" was named the Favorite Soul/R&B Single, and Stevie himself was named Favorite Soul/R&B Male Artist.  In 1982, Stevie went on to receive an Award of Merit, an honor that later was extended to icons including Michael Jackson, James Brown and Whitney Houston.

Previously announced performers at this year's American Music Awards show include Usher, Nicki Minaj and Swizz Beatz featuring Chris Brown and Ludacris.
