ESPYs 2016: Biggest Moments From the Show

There were poignant speeches, calls to action, and more.

The show, which featured poignant moments and laugh-out-loud jokes, was hosted by John Cena and was broadcast live on ABC.

For those who missed the ESPYS or simply want to relive the show, here were five of the top moments of the night:

Not long after, the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage was awarded to 15-year-old Zaevion Dobson, a high school athlete who was killed by stray bullets last year while protecting two young women. His mother, Zenobia Dobson, echoed the players' sentiments, and pressed for harsher gun laws. "All the athletes in this room -- you have a lot of power. People look up to you. I know Zaevion did, and I urge you to think tonight about why he died and what you can do tomorrow to prevent the next innocent young man or woman from being lost as well," she added.

5. Stars pay tribute to Muhammad Ali: At the end of the show, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar spoke lovingly of his friend, the late Muhammad Ali, before Chance the Rapper performed a song intermixed with the boxer's interviews. After telling a story about watching Ali perform magic tricks, Abdul-Jabbar marveled at his "ability to make the impossible seem real" in all aspects of his life. He also praised Ali for using his celebrity to enact change. "He spoke fearlessly about injustice and he sacrificed tremendously for his principles," he said. "In this day and age, at this moment in history, that's what I hope everyone remembers about Muhammad Ali. We're never going to see his likes again walking down the street, but I hope his death spurs his successors to remember what truly made him the greatest."
