I listened and viewed on C TV the full Panorama Semis, and found that Renegades were a bit tired in their playing and Fonclaire song was not exciting and played well. They were both not deserving of Final Places, and that Exodus and Tropical Angel Harps were. I can only say that choice of music was the down fall of Birdsong and Deltones. Our Boys and Pamberi's arrangements were not creative. I am a fan of Starlift, The music was good and sweat but found that we played too slow. Therefore we did not deserve to be in the final. Silver Stars played too too fast, and the inside music was lost. Phase II was flawless in thier performance, and that ending was simply great. Despers played as though they either did not master the piece as yet or did not like their piece. All Stars were All Stars, with more to come. Skiffle Bunch were very polished and measured. Invaders were exciting with their jamming music and stops. Redemption were good enough to be there. I have played pan in finals, and am an avid listener over the past forty years, I give everyone a fair hearing, so that people should not let their biases cloud their judgement. All the bands go out there to give an interpretation of their music. Its hard work for six to eight weeks of late nights, so give the pan men and women their just due, people. Love up the pan, its ours.
RADICA by steelxplosion what a shame for the medium bands
great performance by tobago's steel xplosion
food for thought. how can the members of the steelband fraternity sit by and say nothing. Allowing a band to play a chutney song and is at this stage looking poise to win the panorama medium section. Aren't the bands supposed to play a calypso?I think so.Has the rules been changed.Can we speak about this.Forget about Xodus.
After closely reviewing all comments both positive an negative i must commend on all parties who said there piece...but we at Exodus has moved on in a positive way we picked ourselves up an "DUS" ourselves out and are currently preparing for carnival Monday & Tuesday...under all what has been said bout us ill love for any and everyone to visit our luxurious panyard and look on the faces of each player and see if the results (semi) has fazed any of us...I strongly believe when i say this on behalf of everyone at Sagicor Exodus that we have moved on and looking at Panorama 2011....an i leave all of u with this....Sagicor Exodus is hated by many...loved by a few but respected by all!!!!.....X.O 4 LYFE!!!!!!!....
You have a point there - before this, there was the perception that five bands had a "lock" on five positions in the finals, and for many years it was so. Exodus had always been one of those five bands. I would dearly love to see all those score sheets, and read all the comments from each judge. That being said, the judges have spoken, and everything moves on. Never mind, chin up, and come again for 2011. Kudos to all the members.
Yes MakeItPlain the judges have spoken and we must move on, but in the interest of producing a better product in the future a full review of how the judges came to their decisions should be undertaken by both the PanTrinbago and the TnT government. After all, this is a government sponsored event. And all the prize monies do come directly from the Trinidad and Tobago government.
yeah yeah i was hoping not to get in to this but remember if you want a good carnival u must have little baccahnal
Once again politics has taken the Stage!!!!
My opinion is that some of these results will always stand - the reason behind it is to find a balance of keeping PANORAMA alive, whilst allowing a economically and political balance across TnT.
We all know certain bands have to make the final (No matter What). Although change is apparent small steps have to be made i.e Exodus!!!.

In my opinion Renegades should have also been out. Tropical Angel Harps deserved to be in, they hit real hard- real jam. This year I believe all South bands should have been in the finals- well all except Deltones.
WELL DONE TO ALL BANDS and all the best for the Final!!!!!!!
