Something Special From 1991

I found this bit of archival footage on D-Listed over the weekend, posted to celebrate the birthday of Vegas-cheester Clint Holmes.  It's the opening number of the Miss America pageant from September, 1991.  It's sorta fabulous and sorta freaky and sorta gay...but then again, the gays were probably the only ones watching at this point.  Correction: gays and grandmas.  I missed out on it that year as it was in the middle of my college/grad school TV Blackout (1987-1994).  But thank the Internet gods at YouTube for keeping the shoulder pads and baggy tuxedos alive!
