Hosted by basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal and the multi-talented executive producer of Cartoon Network’s Incredible Crew Nick Cannon, the Hall of Game Awards was a high-energy evening that included a performance by the U.K.’s hottest pop band, The Wanted (“All Time Low” and “Glad You Came”) to an all-star audience including: Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion, NFL stars Colin Kaepernick (San Francisco 49ers), Jacoby Jones (Baltimore Ravens), Bryant McKinnie (Baltimore Ravens), Jimmy Smith (Baltimore Ravens), JJ Watt (Houston Texans), Victor Cruz (New York Giants), David Price (Tampa Bay Rays), Swin Cash (Chicago Sky), Tamika Catchings (Indiana Fever) and Chris Johnson (Tennessee Titans), actors Dominic Monaghan (The Lord of The Rings trilogy), Rico Rodriguez (Modern Family), Raini Rodriguez (Austin & Ally), Jeff Probst (Survivor), Laura Marano (Austin & Ally), Bridgit Mendler (Good Luck Charlie) Lucas Cruikshank (Fred); the casts of Big Time Rush (James Maslow, Carlos Pena, Jr. & Kendall Schmidt), Incredible Crew (Shauna Case, Shameik Moore, Tristan Pasterick, Chanelle Peloso, Jeremy Shada, and Brandon Soo Hoo) and Level Up (Gaelan Connell, Connor del Rio, Jessie T. Usher, Aimee Carrero), Toby Turner (Annoying Orange) and Olympic superstars, Kerri Walsh Jennings, Allyson Felix, Ryan Lochte, Conor Dwyer, Nathan Adrian, Carmelita Jeter, Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber.

The top GAME awards of the night went to “HE’S GOT GAME” winner LeBron James (Miami Heat) and “SHE’S GOT GAME” winner Gabby Douglas (Olympic gold medalist).

Victor Cruz (New York Giants) and hosts Shaquille O’Neal and Nick Cannon had a “Gangnam Style” dance off with “MOST AWESOME MASCOT” nominees before awarding Rocky (Denver Nuggets Mascot) for his smooth moves. The Olympic gold medal-winning U.S. women’s gymnastics team proved to be golden again taking home the coveted “WE GOT GAME” team award.
