Not even a bit of rain and wild weather could dampen spirits at Taste of Dubai over the weekend as former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger surprised crowds with a star appearance.

Making her way through the hundreds in attendance at Dubai Media City’s Amphitheatre, the 35-year-old singer and TV personality, who was hosted by British Airways, posed with pilots and fans including a man in a watermelon costume.

Scherzinger managed to turn heads as she arrived clad in a tight white dress and at one point, an employee from Pinkberry - nearly in tears - desperately tried to give her a yoghurt concoction but the starlet politely refused, reciprocating with a hug instead.

The air was filled with the aroma of countless food outlets as the former X-Factor judge walked through the grounds to interact with fans. She confirmed that she was just in town for the day and would be soon jetting back off to London, presumably to meet up with on-again off-again boyfriend and Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton.

“Dubai is one of my favorite cities, as it has everything a girl could want,” the multi-platinum selling solo artist said in a statement. “I thoroughly enjoyed sampling the incredible choice of culinary delights on offer.”
