It will be the first time the long-running show has ever been held in the Middle East, with Abu Dhabi taking the reigns from predecessors in Los Angeles, Berlin, London and Mexico City.

That’s not all either. As part of a deal between the Middle East’s Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT) and the owner of Nickelodeon, the awards are set to be held in Abu Dhabi for the next five years.

They are part of the Abu Dhabi Family Week, organised by DCT to bring more activities for kids and families to the UAE capital city.

Bring on that slime…
