When it was announced that Drake would be hosting the ESPY’s it was a no brainer that he would kill it, simply because if he can’t do anything else, he can act. Even though his opening bit fell short, his skits were what made the show. Getting a kiss from Skylar Diggins, creating an ode to “side pieces”, and finally reuniting with Chris Brown during his Blake vs. Drake sketch, Drizzy provided one of the most memorable ESPY’s in years! Check out some of the skits below, along with touching speeches from the NFL’s first openly gay player, Michael Sam and ESPN commentator Stuart Scott, who is battling cancer.
