"Can't Stop the Feeling" won Song of the year' award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday and Justin took the opportunity to share a few words of wisdom with his admirers.

"Can't Stop the Feeling!" beat Sia and Sean Paul's "Cheap Thrills", The Chainsmokers and Halsey's "Closer", Drake, Wizkid and Kyla's "One Dance" and Twenty One Pilots' "Stressed Out" to win Song of the Year. Upon taking the stage, he sent a powerful message directed at minority youth, saying that this song - from the animated film "Trolls" - is about "inclusion" and "being together".

Timberlake's voice was soon drowned out by cheers and applause. Justin Timberlake also added that victimized people's difference signifies the difference they make.

While introducing Ed Sheeran's medley performance of "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill", DJ Khaled had an adorable little sidekick to enhance his iHeartRadio Music Awards appearance: His 4-month-old son, Asahd. At least, I think she's still singing shit.

Later, Timberlake took to Twitter to thank his fans once again.

"Oh, you sweet soul", he fired back in a now-deleted tweet. "You wouldn't believe it, but we are in our late 30s".

The Cry Me A River star spoke out at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday.


"I feel misunderstood", he wrote.

To see a list of all the nominees - which basically means all the people you can expect to see - you can head over to iHeartRadio's nominations page. "I shouldn't have responded anyway..."

Zayn Malik's Pillowtalk has won the Best Music Video accolade and 5 Seconds of Summer's Girls Talk Boys from Ghostbusters is the Best Song from a Movie.
