Snoop Dogg controversy[edit]

Snoop Dogg was due to attend the ceremony, but the Department of Immigration and Citizenship cancelled his visa on the basis of "character" issues. Minister for Immigration, Kevin Andrews cited numerous drug and assault offences to back up his decision.[2] The decision has been highly controversial, especially amongst MTV and Snoop Dogg fans.

In protest, MTV Australia had created a website[3] to gather interest and to help Dogg attain Australian Citizenship.

Award moments[edit]

  • Darren McMullen lifted his kilt exposing himself.[4]
  • While Nicole Richie was announcing the winner of the award for Best Male Artist, she miss pronounced the winners name saying Sha-NON Noll instead of the correct Shannon Noll.
  • During a broadcast backstage interview, The Veronicas told viewers that they had a so-called "crush" on the 2006 winner of Australian Idol, Damien Leith. When the girls were interviewed again they stated that Leith's wife had confronted them shortly after they made that remark.
  • Also in The Veronica's backstage interview, Andrew Hansen from The Chaser's War on Everything did something for the show, he acted as a journalist about to ask a question but broke out into a song.
