Justin Timberlake telling haters what’s up

After winning the first — and one of the biggest — awards of the night for song of the year (“Can’t Stop the Feeling!”), Timberlake gave a rather comical speech that closed with a heartfelt message to fans who may be dealing with haters. “Anyone that is treating you unkindly and it’s only because they are afraid or they were taught to be afraid of how important you are,” he said. “Because being different means you make the difference, so f— ’em.”

Best acceptance speech 

John Legend presented Coldplay with one of Sunday evening’s most buzzed about awards. Three cute kids, who first performed alongside Katy Perry during her opening number were enlisted by Coldplay frontman Chris Martin to thank the music biz for honoring the band with Best Tour. Legend even grabbed a chair for the backup dancer to stand on in order to reach the mic!

DJ Khaled​ showing off his boy 

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. Although there was some concern for the boy’s little ears it was pretty hard not to gush over what a precious son he has.
