Soca Monarch Semi-Finals At The Arima Velodrome | 2019

Live Video Coutesy CCN TV6: Trinidad and Tobago
The Semi-Finals round of competition is scheduled for Sunday, February 10th at 3:00 pm at the Arima Velodrome. The Finals (Groovy & Power) are scheduled to take place on Friday March 1st at the Queen's Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain in Trinidad.

Today the judges will pick the singers who will go to the finals. We are jumping ahead today to pick the  winners of the Groovy and Power Soca categories for the finals . In the case of the Groovy Category our pick is V'Ghn (Jevaughn John) from Grenada singing "Trouble In The Morning". His live vocals are the same as the recording... The Morning After Riddim is boss! We predict Vaughn to take it. We love Blaxx but keep an eye on the Grenadians. There is a good chance that both winners will come from the Spice Isle and not from Trinidad and Tobago!

The Power Soca competition should be fun this year but we feel the same about the songs in teh competition. The best Power Soca songs are not in the competition and based on that we made our choice for winnor of the Power Soca competition. It should come down to Iwer George vs Lil Natty & Thunda. Iwer will have the home advantage and better crowd support but we think that Lil Natty and Thunda will surprise everyone with a very spirited performance to prevail. The predicted winner is Lil Natty & Thunda with "Get In Your Section".

Take a deep breath and let is sing in; wait for it now! Yes, we are predicting that Grenada wins it all for ISM 2019!
  • Groovy Soca Monarch - V'ghn singing "Trouble In The Morning" (watch Blaxx & Teddyson John)
  • Power Soca Monarch  - Lil Natty & Thunda singing "Get In Your Section" (watch Mr. Killa with "Run With It")
Let's face it, the Groovy Soca Monarch competition has so much good music but the best songs by artistes from Trinidad and Tobago are not in the competition. They chose not to compete this year and that, dear friends, leaves the door open for talent to rise above hype. Our predictions are based on talent and how our choices perform live for competition.  The Power Soca category cannot compete with the Groovy category for quality of music and quality songs but it brings all the hype for such a show. On the night of the finals hype will create a dust storm while the Groove Soca songs will bring our some special precious moments for those in attendance.

Today/tonight at the Arima velodrome artistes performing will be nervous. There will be an overflow of adrenaline but it is the artistes that take control of the moment, control the energy of the crowd and sing instead of screaming out the lyrics who will make it to the finals. We wish them well... hopefully the judges will not disappoint.We have included YouTube music players with the songs for both categories. Listen to the recorded versions of the songs and base your decisions on the performances heard today.
