Pharrel awarded for musical innovation at the inaugural iHeartRadio US

The star, whose single Happy has become an international sensation, was lost for words for over a minute as Gwen Stefani presented him with the trophy.
"I never dreamt in a million, million, million years... that I would be standing here," he eventually said.
Williams performed a 10-minute medley of his songs at the show, including Happy, Come Get It Bae and his best selling-collaboration with Daft Punk, Get Lucky.
The 41-year-old, who began his career producing songs for the likes of Justin Timberlake, Jay Z and Kelis, said he had never expected to become an artist in his own right.
"All I did was write the songs and you guys did all the heavy lifting, all the hard work," he told the audience at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
His emotional speech came shortly after a clip of him crying on Oprah Winfrey's talk show became a viral hit.
During the interview, Winfrey showed the singer a montage of fans from Africa, the Philippines, Iceland and many more, all singing Happy, his Oscar-nominated, gospel-tinged, feel-good anthem.
Brushing away tears, the singer said the response to the song had been "overwhelming".
Winfrey was among the stars praising Williams' contributions to music at Thursday's ceremony, alongside Lady Gaga, Usher and Shakira.
"He was the person who made it cool to just be you," said Beyonce.
