Oh Gosh...your video is so funny!
about the soca Monarch results - what do you mean by unofficial results? Would they change?

Thanks Shaka! We had a great time.
To answer your question - You know, like when they announce lotto numbers on TV? "Unofficial" means, the final list is the property of the organizers of the event: The Caribbean prestige Foundation. The results posted on this page were put up before they were made public, so I want to prepare readers for the possibility that they've made last minute changes. shed by the official source. But no worries...Today, the word is out. You'll see the list of semi-finalists in all the Trini papers today. These are the right names. However, the order of performances could be completely different. I believe, in the past that has been decided by lottery.

Hope that's clear now!
