Justin Timberlake accepts the award for Song of the Year for 'Can't Stop the Feeling' onstage at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards which broadcast live on Turner's TBS, TNT, and truTV at The Forum on March 5, 2017 in Inglewood, Calif. 

UPDATE: While Zayn gave a Snapchat acceptance speech for winning best music video ("Pillowtalk") at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday night, it turns out Fifth Harmony's "Work From Home," featuring Ty Dolla $ign, actually won the fan-voted category. After the mix-up, Zayn was announced as the winner of the best solo breakout award instead. Read the full story at Stereogum.

Sunday night's iHeartRadio Music Awards brought the jams (March 5) as performers like Katy Perry rocked the stage on a hamster wheel for her performance of "Chained To The Rhythm" with Skip Marley while Ed Sheeran became a one-man band for live renditions of "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill."

The ceremony's big winners included Justin Timberlake who scored the song of the year honor for his Troll soundtrack hit "Can't Stop The Feeling" while The Chainsmokers grabbed two trophies: dance song of the year for "Closer" featuring Halsey and best new artist. Bruno Mars also accepted the innovator award and sprinkled some 24K magic around Inglewood's The Forum.
