Trinidad Calypso & Extempo Results 2019 | Londons Rule

Kaisorama Dingolay was advertised as a night of Champions. The show, consisted of two major Calypso events for Trinidad and Tobago Carnival 2019, took place at the Queen's Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad last night.

The show was poorly attended but that did not prevent those in attendance and the Online 'bush judges' to have a say regarding the quality of the songs/performances and the results; one word, disappointing!
The results are always contentious but with regard to Calypso Monarch competition the winner was celebrated. A new monarch was crowned tonight, Ronaldo London (Young Kings Calypso Monarch) is the new Calypso Monarch of Trinidad and Tobago.

The online 'bush judges' were very critical of the quality of the songs and the fact that the show lacked excitement and was considered boring at times. Some were initially happy with the band playing music but then there were hiccups that caused concern. The uptempo songs were limited and the performances did not lead to the patrons in attendance to get up and celebrate with the performing/competing to win the title of Calypso Monarch. In other words the show was a bore even for those watching and chatting online. One can understand why Calypso is lacking support in Trinidad with the exception of the semi-final show that takes place in Skinner's Park in San Fernando. The need that show format and the show should remain in San Fernando to start! The semi-final show has everything that was lacking in the finals... that is the formula for success!

The new Calypso Monarch (Ronaldo London, dressed in Red) is held up/celebrated by the newly crowned Extempo Calypso Monarch, Brian London (uncle of Ronaldo) and the wife of the great one, Black Stalin. It is Celebration time!

The Extempo competition was boring exclaimed the bush judges but that was not the case for those in attendance! Eight competitors competed for the title with four melodies to choose from. The dominant melody selected was Santimanitay from the list of four: Big Bamboo, Miss Maryanne, Santimanitay and Rum & Coca Cola. The first round was cut to four competitors. Winston Peters went up against Myron Bruce (defending monarch) while Phillip Murray aka Black Sage went up against Brian London. The top two scores (singers) met in the finals. Surprisingly, the pair of Brian London and Black Sage went to the finals. One would have expected the winner of group one should go up against the winner or group two but that was not the case. In the end Brian London emerged winner. 

If you were paying attention you would have realized that the London family won it all tonight! Brian London and his nephew Ronaldo won it all! Congratulations to all those who participated tonight. It is a shame that this show was so poorly attended. Something has to be done to improve the quality of songs and make the show more appealing to the populace.

Today we celebrate the London Family, Ronaldo London, the Young King Calypso Monarch and newly crowned Calypso Monarch for Carnival 2019. Brian London the newly crowned Extempo Monarch and Rivaldo London, the Junior Calypso Monarch. Well done gentlemen and congratulations to the London family!
