WATCH: Two songs commanding 2019 Grand Kadooment presentations

With artistes competing today for yet another title during the 2019 Crop Over season in Barbados, two singers are ahead of the pack already and it's not midday yet.

Vying for the Tune of the Crop crown, familiarly called the Road March, are all local artistes - power and groovy soca singers.


So how is anyone leading the competition already?

It is a known fact that the judging stage for costumes at the National Stadium, this year the Botanical Gardens, is also one of the judging points for this musical competition.

The other points are not public knowledge to increase fairness in this particular competition.

However, as Loop observed, many band leaders have opted to present to Lil Rick's 'Jam Down' and Walkes' 'Champions of Colour'.

Laughingly, when one spectator heard 'Champions of Colour' she was up in arms that "Trini music playing" for the stage crossing until Loop quickly corrected her. Walkes is truly 100-per cent Barbadian.

No one knows what the result will be tonight when Grand Kadooment culminates but those results will be posted once tabulated and revealed by the National Cultural Foundation (NCF).
