The Carnival Planning and Management Committee (CPMC) this week updated its list of qualifiers for the Calypso Monarch Competition after former multiple monarch, Minelle, withdrew from competition to cater to unforeseen challenges.  As a result of the withdrawal, two artistes whose points were tied, will now participate in this year’s competition. These artistes are J’Urgen and Dycer Fontellio.

The updated list of artistes and songs selected to advance to the next stage of competition are listed in alphabetical order, and not indicative of scores or judging preferences.
