Great show at the Burj Khalifa combining water, light and music. Every time very crowded but it's not really a problem. There are plenty of restaurants around on different levels where you will have a perfect view.

Don't be impressed by the first show, every single show it's unique. Try daytime as well as night time shows. It's a nice surrounding all over the place. Take a walk around the lake.
