UPDATE: As reported earlier, Chris Brown joined Drake on the ESPYs Wednesday (July 16) night. The "Loyal" singer co-starred in the hilarious "Drake vs. Blake" skit where the Toronto rapper and Clippers power forward jokingly try and one up each other.
In one scene, Brown is tapped to perform an appendectomy on Drizzy (instead of an actual surgeon), and yells "YOLO!" at his onetime rival before putting him under.
Breezy -- or "America's Sweetheart " -- as he introduced himself as, also popped up at the end of the comedy bit with Griffin, while Drake was "tied up" backstage.
Chris Brown's and Drake's newfound reconciliation extends past the music studio to the ESPYs. TMZ reports that Brown will appear in a skit with the Toronto rapper and Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin during tonight's (July 16) show.
The skit begins in a law office, and ends in a dentist chair, with Griffin holding pliers over Drizzy's open mouth. He reportedly asks Griffin, "Are you really going to do this?" then Brown pops up and says, "No, I am!" TMZ ran a photo from the skit rehearsal, minus Brown.
Drake hasn't confirmed whether or not Brown will be on the show with him, but he has Instagrammed a few ESPY photos to promote his hosting duties.
As far as the show goes, producers likely have other tricks and special guests on deck to make the night memorable. "Our goal for the night is for the ESPYs to completely take over the Internet and for everything we do to go viral," Drake said during a media conference call last week. "We've been working hard to make sure it lasts past the night, which I'm sure it will."
The ESPYs will air live from the Los Angeles Nokia Theater.
