Music, movies and TV get celebrated throughout the year at many different award shows, but tonight sports are front and center. The 2018 ESPYS air live Wednesday night from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Here’s everything you need to know about The 2018 ESPYS.

The award show will air live on ABC on Wednesday at 8 p.m. EDT and is expected to end at 11 p.m. EDT. Fans will also be able to watch the show online with a live stream on Watch ESPN and on the Watch ESPN app.

I am excited to be able to help celebrate, laugh and cry about the past year in sports with everyone. It’s going to be a great night and one full of more than a few surprises.”
