Justin Timberlake swept the music side at last night's 40th People's Choice Awards, taking home three prizes in the fan-voted honors. The singer's 20/20 Experience garnered the night's top music prize for Favorite Album, and Timberlake also won Favorite Male Artist and Favorite R&B Artist.

"I'd like to thank my parents for continuing to instill in me that no dream is too big. I'd like to thank my team that puts up with my ridiculous neuroses all the time – sorry, but not really, because look at this," Timberlake said as he accepted the favorite album award, according to Reuters.

"An actor can't do what they do without hundreds of amazing people working for them and alongside them," Bullock said. "I learned so much this year. I got to work with Melissa McCarthy on The Heat and on Gravity, the nicest people in the world would string me up and leave me there, and I still had an amazing time."

Over in TV land, Glee's Chris Colfer won Favorite Comedic TV Actor for the second year in a row for his role as Kurt Hummel. The Voice won Favorite Competition TV Show and The Walking Dead won Favorite Cable TV Drama, with Rick Grimes also nabbing the prize for Favorite TV Anti-Hero.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
