Justin Timberlake had an absolute ball last night at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. The ex N-Sync star picked up the Top 200 Album award for his album 20/20 Experience as well as 6 other awards. It marks a stunning comeback for Timberlake after his self imposed hiatus since his 2006 album FutureSex/LoveSounds.

He beat out stiff competition for the Top 200 Album award as Drake and Beyonce were also in the running. Justin's other wins came in the Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Male, Top Radio Song, Top R&B Artist and Top R&B Album as well as overall Top Artist.

Justin was not at the awards ceremony in person but offered his appreciation for the award from his tour saying "I'm shocked. I'm stunned. I'm really surprised. We don't even wanna say thank you. We wanna sing thank you!". He then proceeded to sing with an entourage of backup singers much to his fans delight.

There was also a special performance via hologram by Michael Jackson which had the crowd on their feet in appreciation. The hologram even did the famous Moonwalk dance as part of its performance and Jackson sang Slave to the Rhythm form his post humous album Xscape.
