UnFairness to the Max
by: Anonymous

This is one of the first times that I've seen such biased, unfair results. Iwer should have won - hands down! Machel always thought he was too good for Soca Monarch and now y'all gave him the crown. Really disappointed in Trini carnival this year! Bunji and Faye-Ann will always be my King and Queen!

KIng of SOCA
by: JByrd

MACHEL's performance was all round superb, he moved the crowd, he used props that added to the performance, his song was well composed, he finally responded to his "threatened competitors" and most of all he showed why he is KING OF SOCA. Fay Ann gave a disappointing performance and insulted her husband by agreeing hE was a girl. Bunji did his best which clearly was not good enough. Iwer lacked lyrics and still used 1998 beats. Doh know what happened to Destra? MACHEL deserves this!

Destra was the worst performer of the night. Machel intimidated her and her performance fell apart. It was a close race between iwer and machel but i think machel had better stage performance but iwer destroyed the crowd .

Machel deserved to win, he's a talent that's very special. Iwer George was good but he doesn't quite have that spark. Congratulation Mr. Montano you will take it again next year.

Corruption!!!
by: Anonymous

Corruption is the hallmark of the new PP government...imagine Machel get Boo and they call for Iwer throughout his performace but he still win....imagine, he use a backup track to do all the work for him in that performance and he still win...smh. Anyone think he "deserved" to win just as delusional as Iwer...and btw, I was there...the crowd was not happy at all with the results!

Destra third in Groovy?
by: Anonymous

Don't think so....I would have put Blaxx before her...she did not appear to have even finished her song and just walked off the stage..the dancers did not even know her song was over....!!

NOT SURPRISED...
by: Anonymous

We all knew that Machel could have just stood on that stage and he would have won...I agree he performed but when it came to engaging the crowd from beginning to end and keeping them so, Iwer, by far was the winner...
I think Machel was given the win because it was expected...Being there and seeing what went on, there were several moments where people were just standing still during Machel's performance but for Iwer it was everyone including those in the stands moving with every beat...It's unfortunate..the results....(but expected)

soca monarch
by: bdon

Iwer props were lame come on check out that old plane he arrived on -that's so eighties for an International event

However soca Monarch have changes from the 90s and 2000s from just based on crowd response liek when supa blue was around.


people remember judges award points for
crowd response-10
vocals-20
presentation-10
lyrics of song-10
stage use-10
choreography dancers-20

add the texters accounted for 20% of the total.
So even if MAchel did bad on the judges he won on the texting-
I know people texted ten times
Dont hate on the MAN

BRIBERY TO WIN $2M
by: Anonymous

I was front and center at the soca monarch for 2011 and by far Iwer deserved to come first NOT Machael. But we knew it was coming for him to win the crown bcause of Kamla and she partnership (waste of time partnership). That is why she get BOOED when they announced her presence. What de hell she was doing there in the first place and what she know about soca music.

Everybody who trying to disrespect Bunji Garlin and saying who deserve and who deserve take this in your pipe. Bunji hats off to you, imagine every top artist wants to be like you and decide to learn line and pretend that they could freestyle like you, you are a cut above the rest.

Unfair
by: Anonymous

i find that the results was s***, it wasn't judge fairly every one just rate machel so from the start he was declared the winner i still found that iwer deserved it and for the groovy benji got the most out of the crowd nevertheless the soca monarch this year wasnt the best at all i saw better over the years

HD IS BOSS
by: Anonymous

you know what i dont see what the big deal is and how the hell politics could have influence the judging compare to the other acts HD gave a wonder full performance his use of props and presentation overall made him win the title and thats that. sure iwer had the biggest crowd response but i am sure if HD was anti partnership no one would have complained, so give jack he jacket the man could perform and there is a reason he is the soca king of the world

Machel deserves to win
by: kpr

It is not only crowd response the soca songs are judged on. It is also presentation and lyrical content. Iwer definitely had a larger crowd response than Machel. On the other hand, Machel had better lyrical content and presentation by far.

The Finale take is.......
by: Anonymous

Bunji is my artist, but let's be fair, Machels' song is a better soca monarch song than Iwers',..and he had better choreography. Iwer killed him with the crowd and Bunji really was right there too.
My problem is,...vocal is 20 points and Machel's song was playing in the background,..too much use of the MPC man...Iwer capitalised there, he and Bunji, cause they did their entire songs with only back up vocals on the MPC. If Iwer win (in ones opinion) it should be there,..cause the crowd en have to jump whole time,...remember Shadow, 2001!
The show could be better if the foreign acts are given more forwards on radio though,..so the whole show could be exciting,..not just the 4 artist.

Get Real
by: rogee

why people blaming the politics, try and understand that the crowd support is only 10 points and texting was 20% of the final score. Lets suppose that the PNM was in power and decided that they were going to put the mas back in the Savannah and give two million and Machel come back and still win then what?

well done HD
by: Youndiva!!!!!!!

After reading all the comments all i can see is the results was about politics, some people find Machal to rich.....I think the man deserve to win he had a good song and his performance was excellant. My personal views is Iwer needs to go Grenada and sing that song seeing that he running we Trinbagonians when we coming to him and Bunji needs to go into extempo where he can free style all the time.
