Ten Calypsonians selected to challenge reigning Calypso Monarch

Ten Calypsonians and one standby have been selected from a cast of twenty, at the Melody Papitette Semifinals held at the Grenville bus terminus last Sunday night.

They will challenge reigning calypso Queen Ketura George, come August 10 at the National Stadium Di Marche Gras night.

The ten finalists including the standby are:

Germaine Simon or “Superstar” from the sister isle of Carriacou; a first timer to the big stage who gave a good account of herself with her two renditions “Live by Example” and Calypso”.

Randy Isaac, an artiste who has been consistent to the art form, he has never tasted victory in that category but did perform impressively with two renditions “The World Needs a Makeover and “We Could Do Better”.

Edson Mitchell the Ajamu has tasted victory seven times and has returned to make a difference with the hope of making this his eighth victory, his renditions was “When Calypso Was Calypso” and “Take Your Chances”.

Jason Joseph, Big J is a first timer to the big stage but has made it to the semis on more than one occasions, he earned his place in the finals with “The Composer” and “Holding a Slack End Tight”.

Sean Niles - Sour Serpent, an artist who has been consistent to the big stage impressed the judges with “Pan Issue” and “Complexion of Calypso.”

Lloyd Panchoo Mr. X, another artist who always survives the ordeal to make it to the big stage with his biting commentaries, his two renditions were “One Mathematician” and “Legalize”.

Black Wizard is an artiste who has already tasted victory and no stranger to the big stage; his two renditions were “Going Nowhere Fast” and “NNPISM”

Findley Jeffery – Scholar, who has tasted victory seven times, has the hope of making this eight; he rendered “The Promise Land and “Asphalt”.

Janis Augustine another first timer to the big stage, was not daunted by the competition, confidently delivering “Don’t Deliver Me” and “No Political Commentary”.

Sheldon Douglas, another regular on the big stage, has never won in that category but justified his presence with “Bad Man” and “Horn Child”, while Kelly Clyne and Rootsman Kelly is the standby, his two pieces being “Gamblers Shall Groan” and “The Same Song”.
