10:00 Christina Aguilera is performing on the AMAs and it's terrifying. Absolutely terrifying. And my TV's on mute.
10:01Breaking Amish, how I've missed you. It's been a while, you lying fakers. Also, hello host of the reunion special, Michelle Beadle. I have a feeling this is going to get ugly. I hope you're ready, Beadle.
Grantland's Rembert Browne is 25 years old and did not experience the '80s. To educate him from time to time, Bill Simmons shows him clips from YouTube in a series oddly titled "Rembert Explains." Sometimes the clips aren't even from the '80s, they're just insane. The clip they are watching here is of Prince’s domination of the 1985 American Music Awards. Price and The Revolution’s outfits, acceptance speeches, and gigantic Santa Claus bodyguard are not to be missed.
Welcome back to our series Rembert Explains the '80s. Every so often, we'll e-mail 25-year-old Rembert Browne a video from the 1980s that he hasn't seen. Rembert will write down his thoughts as he's watching it, then we'll post those thoughts here. This week's installment was selected by Grantland editor-in-chief Bill Simmons: a portion of the 1985 American Music Awards. If you have an idea for a future episode of Rembert Explains the '80s, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Simmons's note: I'm demanding a breakdown of this clip please
Rembert's note: I've got no choice, he followed "demand" with "please." So kind.
