Over the past few months, we've been giving you a chance to ask some of the biggest newsmakers on the planet, your questions in our segment called "Connector of the Day."

It is the part of the show where you get to send in questions to people like Naomi Campbell, Oliver Stone, Abhishek Bachchan and everyone in between.

Whether you've wanted to know if former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf was ever planning on returning to politics, how Ozzy Osbourne dealt with drugs and alcohol or if Boy George got along with Lady Gaga - no question was off-limits.

Now, we want you to help choose who should come on the show as your "Connector of the Day."

Who do you want to see next?

Whether you've always wanted to ask George Clooney a question or spark a debate with Anna Wintour, we want to know who you want to see on the show and why.

Just leave your suggestions below and we'll try our very best to get them on. Obviously, sometimes it might be a bit tricky getting your favorite celeb on-air, but we will listen to your suggestions and try our very best.

We want this to be your interview - where we ask your questions to the guests that you've asked for.

Tell us who you want to see and if they come on-air, we'll make sure to ask them your very own question first!

The 52-year-old manager of the American national soccer team took the U.S. side unbeaten through the group stage matches with a win against Algeria and draws against England and Slovenia.

In the second round, the American team played a tough Ghana side and the game went into extra time with the Ghana team eventually claiming victory with a 1-2 win.

"I thought at 1-1 we had a chance, but we didn't have enough freshness against all of Ghana's power," Bradley said.

"We have a great squad. We're proud but also disappointed not to have gone further."

Bradley took over managing the team in December 2006 and quickly took his team to a number of wins in friendly matches against teams like Mexico.

In his first year as manager, Bradley took the U.S. side to an impressive record of 12 wins, one draw and five losses.

One of the highlight's for the U.S. side came in 2009 when the team finished in second place in the Confederations Cup. The Americans even managed to beat the world's number one ranked team and European champions, Spain.

As part of the Tibetan royal family, the 17-year-old has spent all his life in exile.

In June 2004, Namgyal was coronated during a ceremony presided over by Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama.

He is celebrated for being the descendant of the great Kings of Tibet.

Namgyal has just finished his high-school education and is about to head for a university in the United States.

However, before he furthered his education, Namgyal wanted to tell the story of the Tibetan people through their eyes.

As a result he has been working alongside the BYkids non-profit organization – which aims to match the world’s youth with experienced filmmakers to cover globally relevant issues.

It has led to the production of "My Country Tibet,” a new documentary in which Namgyal, who conducted his own interviews, speaks with Tibetans about how they live their lives and balance their religion with their sense of identity.
