AS HAS BECOME A HABIT, the Cave Shepherd All Stars took the lion’s share, but this year they had to share with De Big Show, tying for six places when the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) announced the 18 semi-finalists for the MQI/Banks/LIME Pic-O-De-Crop Competition.
After the last tent, Tomorrow’s Children was judged last night at Waterford, the judges headed to the NCF headquarters to do their tabulations.
Before a small crowd, consisting mostly of people from the House of Soca tent, the NCF’s corporate communications specialist Simone Codrington announced the names.
They are: All Stars’ Aziza, Cher, De Announcer, Donella, Kid Site and Miguel; De Big Show’s Adonijah, Biggie Irie, Classic, John King, Mikey and Serenader as well as Headliners’ Blood, Adrian Clarke and Chrystal Cummins-Beckles.
Experience got two “pics” in Apache and Billboard and House of Soca had the one “pic” in the form of first timer Sammy G. The reserve is Colin Spencer of Headliners.
The semi-finals will be held on Friday, July 18, at the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium. (NS)
