Calypso Monarch Finalists | Trinidad Dimanche Gras 2014

It was not an easy show to judge with so many excellent performances. The show was so good that the toilet paper brigade had to return home with their 'tools of the trade' and put it to the use it was originally intended. No singer was booed - it was an excellent show.

Singer after singer, song after song... they were all excellent! Just about everyone at home, who attempted to pick the final eleven to compete in the finals against last year's defending monarch Mr. Eric Taylor, ended up with a listing of at least 25. Singing Sandra did not make it; another excellent performance, this time by Allan Welch (song: Soil Technician),  did not make it along with many other excellent calypsos/performances.

So who is going to the finals to attempt to dethrone last year's monarch, Eric "Pink Panther" Taylor? Here is the listing of the finalists who would perform on Dimanche Gras night (Yes, the Calypso finals returns to Carnival Sunday/TUCO organized show):
