Justin Timberlake was honoured with the first ever Decade award at last night’s Teen Choice Awards.
The award was presented to the singer during the ceremony at The Forum in Los Angeles, which saw the likes of Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber and Chloe Moretz in attendance.
Timberlake, 35, referenced boxing great Muhammad Ali in his speech and urged teenagers to “be part of the solution, not part of the problem”.
He said: “Muhammad Ali fought in the ring, but he fought for peace, too. And he became the heavyweight champion of the world because, as we all know, he could float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.”
The SexyBack star also said he hoped his one-year-old son, Silas, “watches this one day”, adding: “Go out, do the impossible and go on and become the greatest generation yet.”
Timberlake has won a total of 23 Teen Choice Awards during his career, and earlier this year presented Bryant with an Icon Award at a major sporting awards ceremony.
The award coincides with the 10-year anniversary of his 2006 album FutureSex/LoveSounds.
British boyband One Direction were also honoured with a few surfboards, the Teen Choice Awards trophy of choice, as they were named Choice Song Group winner for their hit Home, as well as taking the Choice Fandom and Choice Music Group awards
One Direction band member Harry Styles was also named Choice Male Hottie.

A recognisable British face in the celebrity crowd was Brooklyn Beckham, who attended the award show with his girlfriend, actress Chloe Grace Moretz, who was named the winner of the Choice Movie Actress Comedy category.
