Miss Universe UAE cancels coronation night

DUBAI: Miss Universe UAE announced on Sunday it was canceling its live coronation that was to take place that day.

The organization said the last-minute change was due to “time constraint.”

“Please watch this space for further news and updates,” read a statement posted on Miss Universe UAE’s Instagram stories.

The new date for the event is yet to be announced.

Last month, pageant organizers revealed that former Miss Lebanon Nadine Nassib Njeim would be on the jury panel for the event.

To join the pageant, participants had to be aged between 18 and 28 and live in the UAE.

The committee includes founder and chief executive of Dubai’s Yugen Events, Josh Yugen, Dubai-based fashion designer Furne Amato, former British-Filipino beauty queen Maggie Wilson, philanthropist Alaf Meky, humanitarian Zel Ali, and general manager of Emaar, Sharihan Al-Mashary.

Miss Universe, which began in 1952, is the world’s biggest pageant. It was previously owned by former US president, Donald Trump.
