The night's other winners included DJ Skrillex, Adele, Zac Brown Band, Miguel and Kelly Clarkson.

One of the night's most anticipated performers, Justin Timberlake, made his long-awaited return to the spotlight with his first televised performance since he released "Suit & Tie" in January, his first new song in five years.

Timberlake also debuted a smooth R&B song called "Pusher Love Girl," from his upcoming album "The 20/20 Experience."
