(End of International Soca Awards 2013 Results)

What do you think of these results or this entire awards show? Does it have any credibility?

Seems to be all about Trinidad to me so why call it an International Soca Awards? Why is there a category for Japan but big soca producing nations like Saint Lucia are left out? How does Machel Montano win the best band category? Machel performs with a band but he's an artist. He performs with the HD family but is not marketed as a band.

In all fairness this should be called a Trinidad and Tobago awards show.
