Only it didn't come courtesy of J.T, who skipped the carpet and entered through the back of the Hyatt with Jess.

"I got to find out that Hollywood actually does have a heart," joked Justin, who even managed to slip in a reference to his "Dick in a Box" SNL skit.

None taken. Though after Andy's onstage flattery, may we suggest you incorporate some of Jess' body parts into your next hit?
