Daly has been the host of many MTV shows and was involved in the birth of the channels flagship programme TOTAL REQUEST LIVE.

TONY DiSANTO a Senior Vice President of MTV says, "Carson Daly is synonymous with TRL. He was with us from the very beginning, and helped us define and shape it into MTV's flagship show.

"TRL wouldn't have happened without him, so when it came to decide who gets this year's Lifetime Achievement Award, the decision was clear."

Viewers can see the ceremony live on the network next Tuesday (13APF04).
