Dick Clark Productions announced Friday that Swift would receive the Dick Clark Award for Excellence at Sunday’s show. Swift is receiving the honor for her record-setting sales. Titled “1989,” her fifth album, released last month, became the singer’s third album to sell more than 1 million units in its debut week. Dick Clark’s widow, Kari Clark , said in a state- ment that “the first time Dick saw Taylor perform, he knew she was something special.” Swift will kick off the awards show with a performance of “Blank Space,” her new single which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart this week. The AMAs will air live on ABC. Iggy Azalea is the lead nominee with six. NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Bill Cosby took his comedy show on the road Thursday in the Bahamas as controversy surrounds him at home. The 77-year-old entertainer performed in a small theater at the Atlantis resort in a benefit for a women’s service organization, making no mention of the allegations of sexual assault by several women that have resurfaced in recent days. Cosby stuck to his familiar routine of anecdotes about his life, including stories about his childhood growing up in the proj- ects of Philadelphia and some observations about life in the Bahamas drawn from previous visits to the island chain. There were few empty seats for the 90-minute set. Several members of the audience, which included some prominent Bahamians who came to the fundraiser to support the Nassau chapter of The Links, had no trouble ignoring allegations that he drugged and sexually abused women. “I think everybody is entitled to the presumption of innocence until proven guilty,” said Alfred Sears , an official with the College of the Bahamas and a former attorney general.
