Roots Man Kelly Tops Calypso Semifinals

The ten calypsonians to join Calypso King Scholar at this year’s Dimanche Gras show were selected from a cast of twenty, at the Melody/Pipette Calypso Semifinals, held at the progress park in Grenville last Sunday night. The finalists will individually challenge the reigning calypso monarch, Findley Jeffery- the scholar, holder of eight titles with the hope of dethroning him.

Topping the list emerging from the semis is Roots Man Kelly, who has never won a crown but graced the big stage many times to impress the judges. He put down a thrilling performance on Sunday night, impressing the judges who awarded him the highest score of 480 points. 

Sheldon Douglas, a calpsonian who made it to the big stage on numerous occasions, and has held the Soca title on more than one occasion as well as the road march title, took second place at the semis, with a total of 456 points while 3rd place went to Jason Joseph (Big J) another regular presence on the big stage. His renditions were No Sense and Ah Start to Bark. He tied with Baraka and Sour serpent, both veterans of the calypso finals.

The other finalists are Killer B, Stanley Matthew The Campus, Laura Lisa, Teacher Eddie, and Super Star.
