January 26, 1980: Prince made his television debut on American Bandstand, where he performed "I Wanna Be Your Lover” and “Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?” When he was interviewed by Dick Clark after his performance, the notoriously shy singer froze and struggled to reply to the questions he was being asked.
