For the first time in the region, the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards took place in Abu Dhabi on Friday night, raising the roof of the capital's National Exhibition Centre. The internationally renowned ceremony possessed a distinctive local flavour, as host and Mamacita hit maker Jason Derulo was joined by YouTube personality Haifa Beseisso who received the infamous 'slime' treatment later in the night. The Middle Eastern quotient only increased as performances from Maritta and al-Waleed Hallani, Nora Fatehi and Fnaire, Dyler and Egyptian star Mohamed Hamaki rounded off the evening, with Maritta's live rendition of Ana and Hamaki's performance of Ya Sattar closing out the show producing some of the biggest cheers. Britain's Conor Maynard was also a highlight while kids' favourite artists were crowned across 16 entertainment categories.
