Justin Takes Stage as ESPYs Host

Asset 270 Justin took the stage last night as host for the 16th Annual ESPY Awards at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. Each year, the ESPYs celebrate and honor the year’s best athletes and sports performances. Justin got a little silly during the show, donning a blond wig to impersonate Jessica Simpson in her famous daisy-duke shorts and poking fun at her relationship with the Dallas Cowboys’ star-quarterback Tony Romo. In the style of the gossip magazines, he named the celebrity twosome “Tessica” and “JoRo.” A video with several back-to-back sports-inspired skits kept the audience of athletes laughing. Justin posed as an irritating sports reporter whose hard-hitting questions included, “Were you or were you not a fan of N’Sync?” He kidded with both celebrities and athletes and laughed about his contribution to Janet Jackson’s infamous Superbowl “wardrobe malfunction” saying “I wanted to be the only guy at a football game to get to second base.” Justin also performed a sports-themed rock opera.

The self-proclaimed sports fanatic got favorable reviews for his hosting skills. Monday Night Football host Stuart Scott commented on Justin’s performance, “After what he's putting down tonight ... Justin can come hang out on the set anytime." Photo Credit: Jeff Kravitz
