"As a relatively new dad and a former teen, I am here to say you will make mistakes along the way," Timberlake told the teens. "You will fall down. I have many times â€” even [Muhammad] Ali did."
Meanwhile Alba and singer Ne-Yo, who performed Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On," asked the teenagers to stand united in the peaceful fight against violence. They were joined on stage by a group of teens who were all affected by the recent shootings in places like California and Florida. "Tonight, we stand together with these teens united in a call for peace and an end to this violence... Now, more than ever, we need to stop, feel and ask, 'What's going on?'" Alba said in a powerful speech.
