It should be a very entertaining day when some of the best singers will endeavor to provide performances that would hopefully be 'good enough' to get them to the finals to compete for the $1M first prize. On Saturday the supporting music will be provided by 'Errol Ince & The Music Makers'.
It should be noted that after the calypso semi final competition is finished that the party will continue with a lime/fete that is billed as "The Big Fiesta Jam".

There are six former monarchs – Chalkdust (Dr Hollis Liverpool); Sugar Aloes (Michael Osouna); Singing Sandra (Sandra Des Vignes-Millington); Kurt Allen, Pink Panther (Eric Taylor) and 2011 monarch Karen Asche.
Last year’s monarch Duane O’Connor will defend his crown and said earlier he was confident of retaining his crown. “I feel great this year and I am sure that I will hold on to my title.” He said his competitors would have to fight “very hard” to dethrone him. The monarch’s two offerings this year are “Seeking Sparrow’s Advice” and “Building the Wall”.
