Well that was easy to predict – JW and Blaze’s huuugely popular Palance secured the Power Soca Monarch title last night in Trinidad. Click here for the video of the winning performance.
The smart money is on them to take Road March as well since they not only won, but won convincingly – by a full 17 points over defending monarch Fay-Ann Lyons’ True Lies – 81 to her 64.
It was much, much tighter in the Groovy Soca Monarch contest, with Shurwayne Winchester’s Murdah prevailing over defending monarch Fay-Ann’s Start Wining by just one point – 58 to 57. In fact, the whole top four was tight as Rikki Jai’s Barman placed third with 56 points and Patrice Roberts Wuk It (she like de wukking ting yes?) placed fourth with 55 points.
