Barbados will not be represented in this year's International Power Soca Monarch competition in Trinidad. With $2 million up for grabs, Barbadian entertainers Mikey and Li’l Rick who performed in the semifinals held on Sunday night at the Arima Velodrome, did not make it through to the finals, slated for February 8.  Biggie Irie won the competition in 2007 with his song We Nah Goin' Home. He was the first non-Trinidadian to capture the title.
