{VIDEOS} Machel Montano and Super Blue tie for 1st place in Trinidad's POWER SOCA MONARCH 2013 competition

It is a tie! Machel Montano HD and Austin 'Super Blue' Lyons finished in first place in the Power Soca category of the International Soca Monarch Competition last night at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Trinidad. The much anticipated battle of the Student and the Teacher came down to 'I told you so' result because the judges could not separate the two artists. As a result they will share bragging rights because of the title split!

This is one show that really came across well and the artists were the one who brought the energy that was missing for Groovy Soca category. The power Soca segment did not disappoint at all and it was amazing that the show that many said did not have the talent saved the night. In the end the stage was set for the man everyone waited to see Austin "Super Blue" Lyons. The stadium erupted went wild when Machel performed but the sea of humanity simply moved in unity when Super Blue performed. It was one of those performances that you would talk about for years for many different reasons. The people were fantastic and relished the moment however the performances, thought they captivated the audience and shook the stadium, were not stellar.

It was Cha-os after Swappi performed and Super Blue came on to perform - the stadium erupted with joy and celebration of and for the moment - their hero was on stage and they wanted him to do well! The people went crazy when the cow horn sounded. Super Blue  had the crowd behind him and his performance was electric; then came the results! Dead heat, the judges could not separate Machel Montano HD and Super Blue - it was not a split decision in terms of close finishes; it was simply a split result with both singers sharing bragging rights of Power Soca Monarch of Trinidad & Tobago!
The final places were as follows:

1.  Machel Montano - Float
1. Austin ‘Super Blue’ Lyons - Fantastic Friday

3. Rodney ‘Benjai’ Le Blanc - Engoma

4. Destra Garcia - Carry On

Machel Montano won the Groovy Soca Monarch competition!


READY TO SOCA: Defending triple crown winner Machel Montano had his young fans in their glee on the Brian Lara Promenade, in Port of Spain, yesterday during his appearance on the Carnival Promenade Countdown.

Machel Montano has thrown down the gauntlet to SuperBlue, saying he is ready for any "bouncer" the veteran has to bowl at him on the night of the Soca Monarch finals.

Montano, the defending Power and Groovy Monarch, believes it will be a night when the student will school the teacher.

"The tectonic plates are going to rock Soca Monarch on that night because the student coming up against the teacher and I coming to float. Everybody know this is a big year for me, so my idea is about getting off the ground and jetting into sonic air and floating with the people for Carnival."

Montano, who spoke to the Express on the Greens at the National Panorama semi-finals on Sunday at the Queen's Park Savannah, said it was a truly gratifying experience to come up against a man he considered an inspiration.

"SuperBlue story is a deep one and if you really know I remember back in the days in my house growing up I was introduced to Bob Marley and Lionel Richie; in my house calypso was not on the radar, but I saw SuperBlue one day throwing his mike and shifting his feet and that make me feel it have something for me and I can do something with that. He is always the mentor," said a smiling Montano.

SuperBlue, who won the Soca Monarch title on six previous occasions, is making his first appearance in over a decade in the competition on Fantastic Friday (February 8).

Respect aside, Montano said he had every intention to change the catchphrase Fantastic Friday. "It is now Float Friday, as a matter of fact, fogging, float Friday. We going to float, fog up the place and make it real nice."

Such was the juicy couture outlet idea juicy couture outlet she threw out on my forthwith going to michael kors her. “For north face outlet a nike blazer few minutes — presently.”She hesitated long enough montre pas cher for me to judge supra shoes her as a trifle surprised at ferragamo shoes my being so ready — as if pandora jewelry indeed she had ray ban sunglasses rather hoped karen millen I wouldn’t michael kors outlet be; nike roshe run which would have michael kors outlet been nike air max an easy pretext to hollister her true religion outlet to gain babyliss time. jordan shoes In fact, with a mulberry face not quite like the brave michael kors outlet face she had at each step hitherto shown me, yet unlike in a fashion vans pas cher I should certainly not ralph lauren have been able thomas sabo to define on the spot; with polo ralph lauren outlet an expression, in short, that pandora charms struck me as oakley sunglasses taking refuge in gucci outlet a general reminder that not my coach outlet convenience, but her nike free run uk own, was in question, she replied: “Oh, no north face outlet — but before it’s longchamp too late.
