This might be one of the most up in the air soca monarchs i've seen or heard of...all the power tunes lack a little *pow* to me. At first listen only, Fireman Hooper kept my attn. The rest of them came in a little blah. Even Iwer's got boring to me. As for groovy, albeit to mention such fukry with the semis from what I saw, it's gonna be a good one and Kes might be in for a good competition that night but for some reason I see him doing it again.

If they din theif Lil' Rick at Monarch down here he would be there to mash up Trinidad instead of Mikey and that dead song.

machel does NOT have to perform first... the picking for order is not until the week of carnival.. where yall got that madness from???
Yep you're right there ... I think some people got that idea because the International Soca Monarch released a list that is in alphabetical order, except that the reigning monarchs who are defending their crowns, names were placed in front of everyone else ... this was the list to tell everyone the text codes for each competitor, but guaranteed, they will be picking places next week tuesday or wednesday ... then, even then, they may not perform in that position because if the competitors not happy with those positions or if, for example, one band backin up multiple competitors (for example Kes the Band has Kees, probably / maybe Michelle, maybe JW & Blaze, etc.) it will make more sense for them to perform one after the other, so the band can do what it has to do and then get off stage so the next band could perform for the other artistes.

If I am correct I believe they usually use one band to back all the artists at Soca Monarch Finals and that band is usually Roy Cape All Stars.

Please correct me if I am wrong for 2012 on this one!

Can anyone confirm the main band that will be used to back all (or most of) the artists at SMF on Fantastic Friday?!

This is why artists should never rely too much on the results of these Carnival competitions to make or boost their careers!!

If MM wins everything this year I would like to see him retire once again from all competitions (besides Road March the people’s choice) from next year!!

Soca Music is a cultural mission and not a competition!!

In this regard, good going to Bunji & Fay-Ann this year in sending out that crucial message as big artists in the business!!
