Artistes and their representatives after they drew their positions in the Sweet Soca finals. (Picture by Natanga Smith.)
Bo Bo will lead and Lil Rick will end the Sweet Soca competition on July 29 at Soca Royale.
Bo Bo pulled first position when the Sweet Soca calypsonians met at the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation for a recording of Festival Stage.
The artistes were in a jovial mood and they gathered to pull. With no balls this time, they drew numbers.
Based on order of appearance, some were not comfortable with their positions so opted to switch with those willing.
Absent was Marvay, whose No. 6 was pulled by Ingrid Holder who then switched with Lil Rick who had No. 4. Lil Rick in turn switched with Biggie (pulled by Ruel Ward) who had No. 7.
Biggie now has No. 6 and Lil Rick has No. 7.
Celeste Marshall caused some confusion when she pulled for Imani who was to perform last at No. 9 and then switched with iWeb (pulled by Brian Corbin) who had No. 2 and wanted to switch back.
That did not happen.
In order of appearance are: Bo Bo, Imani, Mikey, Marvay, Adrian Clarke, Biggie, Lil Rick, Sanctuary and iWeb.
There are nine in the finals since RPB will not be defending his crown. (NS)
