Calypsonians were judged using the Hi-Lo method for lyrics, music and performance.
This method discarded the highest and lowest scores in each category for each appearance. The sum of the remaining scores was used as the final total.
The other calypsonians were Calypso Craig, Lady Diva, Ace, King Godfrey and I Soursop.
MC for the night, Calypso Reggie, kept the crowd entertained while a side show was hosted by EK The Real Right. That featured first runner up in the Power Soca Monarch finals, Khyla Browne and recently crowned Junior Calypso King, De Conqueror Chris.
