Fantastic Friday | International Soca Monarch Finals 2014

Tomorrow is the big day... Fantastic Friday is here once again - it is time to put up or just shut up. The artists will perform and attempt to unseat Machel Montano as Monarch in both (co-defends Power Soca Monarch title with Super Blue) the Groovy and Power Soca Categories.

Who will rise to the occasion and deliver a stellar performance to take it all? We all have favorites but is our 'horse in the race' good enough to take it all? It should be a grand show and hopefully Carnival TV will have the show live in High Definition for those of us who live overseas and depend on the Internet for a live feed. Some people have already picked the winner and those who will be runners up. I only hope that the judges penalize singers for shouting during their performances. We want to hear people sing their songs and not shout to the World. I also hope that they limit the use of pre-recorded music and that all the music comes from the band on stage. If the artists sing and the band on stage provides all the music I will be very pleased. However, if that is not the case then we may have the same scenario from last year and the person who sings the best, has good stage presence and support from the audience may end up watching a shouting artist win it all!

Regardless of what actually happens there will be loads to be happy about and an equal amount of complaints to balance the scale. I only hope that we are blessed with a video feed that streams well - everything else is just gravy on my plate!

The People's Event | Carib Breakout Artist Of The Year
Let us not forget that on this night the "Carib Breakout Artist" for 2014 will be determined when Mr. Killa and Erhaan Alves perform. These two artists made the final cut to determine the winner. The competition is co-sponsored by Carib, Ford Motors Trinidad limited and Slam 100.5 fm. The odds favor Grenada's "Mr. Killa" to win this competition with his hit song "Rolly Polly" that has steam rolled it way across Trinidad and Tobago.
