Ciara and Russell Wilson Recreated the Espys Red Carpet—In Their Backyard
Ciara and her NFL superstar husband Russell Wilson could not be prevented from holding that the ESPY 2020 award ceremony could not take place as planned.
The couple even went so far as to set up a red carpet - in their own back yard. "I've been coming to this show for seven years and one of my favorite parts of the night has always been the red carpet," said Wilson, who acted as one of the evening's virtual supporters. "I thought, why should this year be different? So I put one in my garden. "

“RED CARPET LIFE! #ESPYS 2020 Covid can't stop us! "The Seattle Seahawks quarterback tweeted. The video clip shows a full step-and-repeat setup with Ciara and Wilson posing in bathrobes. They talk to a life-size excerpt from NBA star LeBron James and even ask a question from a "reporter" who asks if Wilson is a better quarterback than Tom Brady. "Girl, look at you now and try to make trouble," Ciara replies.
But it was like a normal ESPY experience. "It really felt like we were on the ESPY red carpet - until the sprinklers lit up," Wilson said in the video.
Wilson, Megan Rapinoe and WNBA star Sue Bird (who is with Rapinoe) started the night as Cohosts with a strong tribute to George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. “The work in our country is far from over. We need justice. We need real leadership. We need a change and we need it now, ”said Wilson. “I look at my children and pray for a better future. The only thing that has to die is racism. Black lives count. Where are we going from here? ... I see a world full of injuries, pain and despair. But I also see a new generation, a generation that urgently requires permanent change. "
