It's the segment on CNN International's "Connect the World" where you get the chance to ask the tough questions to some of the biggest newsmakers and celebrities on the planet.

The year is only a little more than half way done and you, the viewer, have already asked some amazing questions to some of the most controversial and powerful people on earth.

You asked Oscar winner Morgan Freeman how his unique voice has impacted his career and if he thought it was more a positive or a negative.

Ringo Starr was quizzed on how he felt about the Vatican forgiving the Beatles for their 'satanic' messages back when the group first started - he simply replied by tell you that the Vatican had more important things to worry about.

Famed cricketer Imran Khan told Becky Anderson that Pakistan was "finally ready for change."

You even asked Playboy founder Hugh Hefner how he was going to celebrate his birthday.

Some of our other highlights include Nigella Lawson, Tony Blair and Shakira.

Now, we're giving you a chance to relive some of your favorite moments.

    I love to see Fatima Bhutto. She is the only one in the Bhutto clan who i admire due to her polished background and no nonsense politics. I hope and pray that in future we get leaders like her instead of the crap we are dealing with right now.....!!
