HERE’S a look back at some of the top personalities that have managed to leave a lasting impression at the MTV Asia Awards down the years. And the winners for Best Appearance at an MTV Asia Awards Ceremony are?

Best Celebrity Host: Alicia Keys may have been coolness personified when she hosted the 2005 edition of the MTV Awards, but Irish pop legend Ronan Keating (right) had everyone charmed to bits with his easy-going nature. Cohosting the inaugural MTV Asia Awards in 2002 along with Mandy Moore, Keating stole the show with his repertoire of dry wit, cheeky banter and the sort of boyish charm plenty of thirtysomething women must find irresistible. This year’s host, Jared Leto, has big shoes to fill.

Best Performance: Over the years, the MTV Asia Award has seen plenty of thrilling, elaborately choreographed performances from likes of Rain, Black Eye Peas, Korn, Robbie Williams, Avril Lavigne, Jay Chow, Sugababes, Simple Plan and Linkin Park among others. But Daniel Powter’s moving appearance on stage at the 2006 MTV Awards in Bangkok topped them all with subtle but persuasive power. Singing his hit song, Bad Day, with no props, no sexy dancers, props or pyrotechnics, it was just a moving one-man-and-hispiano performance with the music and the emotion of the song doing all the talking.

The Star Power Award: There can only be one winner for this award and that distinction goes to the divine Mariah Carey, who turned up at the 2004 MTV Awards in Singapore to pick up her Lifetime Achievement Award looking like she had just beamed down from Planet Superstar. It’s just a shame that the diva didn’t see fit to treat everybody to a song.

Best Collaboration: Malaysian songbird Siti Nurhaliza and Brit pop sensation Gareth Gates; duet on the latter’s smash hit ballad Say It Isn’t So at the 2004 MTV Asia Awards.East meets West = Pop Nirvana.
