The iHeart Radio Music Awards took place in Inglewood, California last night and saw Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake and The Chaimsmokers all accepting awards.

Ed won Best Lyrics for Justin Bieber's smash hit Love Yourself (did you know he wrote it?! There you go now!) He and co-writer Benny Blanco made a short but sweet acceptance speech.

Justin Timberlake took home the Song of the Year gong for Can't Stop The Feeling. He said he loved the song Closer by The Chainsmokers and "may have" sung it while driving in his car. He went on to make an empowering speech and equality, saying “If you are black or you are brown or you are gay or you are lesbian or you are trans, or maybe you’re just a sissy singing boy from Tennessee...anyone that is treating you unkindly ― it’s only because they are afraid, or they have been taught to be afraid of how important you are.”

Coldplay won the award for Best Tour and had 3 children to the honours on stage...

Adorable!

The Chainsmokers and Halsey won Best Dance Song for Closer. Halsey talked about what it's like to hear the song played on the radio...we can only imagine!

The Innovator Award rightfully went to Bruno Mars who thanked the guys who've been with him since day one.
