The sweet soca finalists are looking to be perfect on the big day.
One by one they gathered at Lester Vaughn School yesterday for rehearsals with the backing band and vocalists.
After Blood rehearsed his song Dah Fah Lick Yah for about an hour, he said he was ready for the competition.
“I am as ready as I will ever be. Things are going good so far; the two-week break between the competitions is good. We would have time to prepare properly,” he said.
He added that his chances in the competition were as good as anyone else’s.
Last Thursday, at the launch of Soca Royale, event producer Adisa Andwele said that for the first time the finalists for the competitions at Soca Royale would have a technical and grand rehearsal for the artistes, band and the media, namely the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).
“CBC will be there to get their camera angles right and to see where they will set up. This way we would have no issues at all on the day,” he said.
Tomorrow will be the Party Monarch rehearsal at the same location, and Soca Royale comes off this Sunday at Bushy Park, St Philip. (DB)
