It seems like Justin Timberlake has officially joined Taylor Swift's all-star squad. JT got the crowd laughing on Sunday night when he lobbed a few jokes about Swift's runaway success while presenting her with the best tour award presentation at the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards.

"I am very happy to be back with all of you in this arena to help honor a great young woman who has accomplished extraordinary things in arenas and stadiums all around our world," Timberlake said. "This extraordinary singer, songwriter and performer, has been elevating the place of music in our lives, bringing all types of people together in big and powerful ways as a touring sensation."

Swift appreciated JT's kind words and the lovefest continued after the show, with Timberlake posting a picture from the stage of Taylor giving her acceptance speech, addressed to "my good friend, Taylor… Congrats, dear!!!"
