Major sports news alert! Actors have the Oscars, musical talents have the Grammy’s, but now it’s time for athletes to have their day. Ladies and gentlemen ESPN’s ESPYs for 2014 are almost upon us.
This year, hip hop artist Drake shall host the ever-entertaining ESPY’s Awards which is usually filled with side-splitting skits and great stand-up comedy. Drake happily broke the news on Twitter excited that he will be able to show off his “award show host” skills. It was Drake’s enormous success at hosting Saturday Night Live that locked up this major new gig for the multi-platinum artist. One of our favorite skits from Drake’s awesome SNL performance was his imitation of funny man, Katt Williams.
Drake said,”This is an incredible opportunity for me to combine two of my biggest passions — sports and performing.” We couldn’t agree more and we can’t wait to “thank Drake later” for making us crack up all night. If you want to see Drake do his thing at this year’s ESPY’s Awards be sure to tune in to ESPN Wednesday, July 16.
