The person who pulled No. 1 is hoping he ends up in that position and the one drawn last is hoping his name is the final one called when the results are read for the MQI/Banks/LIME Pic-O-De-Crop Finals on August 1 at Kensington Oval.
There was a lot of clowning around at the National Cultural Foundation when the ten finalists and/or their representatives met with officials and then drew for the order of appearance yesterday evening, but things will get even more serious now that positions are known.
De Big Show contender Classic will be first out on stage, followed by tent-mate Mikey. The others will be Miguel of Cave Shepherd All Stars; Headliners’ three of Chrystal Cummins-Beckles, defending Calypso Monarch Ian Webster and Blood; Biggie Irie of De Big Show; All Stars’ De Announcer and Kid Site; and Headliners’ Adrian Clarke in anchor position. There was no switching of numbers.
The two reserves are John King of De Big Show and Sammy G from House of Soca. (YB)
