We're going to rewind back to some of our favorite Bandstand Performances of all-time. In September of 1952, ABC aired the first national broadcast of\u00a0American Bandstand\u00a0with the world\u2019s oldest teenager, Dick Clark, as its host. However, Dick didn't come onboard to the program until 1955 as a substitute host. In honor of the occasion, DYR looks back at 11 of our favorite Bandstand Performances in the show\u2019s 37-year history.\u00a0 Our Favorite American Bandstand Performances Jerry Lee Lewis (1957) The piano-playing singer had several appearances on the show, but his performance of \u201cGreat Balls of Fire\u201d really riled up the crowd.
