Congats to All Stars , good performance ! Now lets watch the videos and listen to musical arrangements that's pleasing to the air even after all the fireworks. Unfortunately the champion band does not fall in that catergory but let's enjoy the musical arrangements of Phase 2 ,Exodus , Ivaders , Deltones and even Renegades from the semis . One thing we must remember is that the best music is not rewarded at all times in Panorama and after ' Woman on the bass ' and ' Curry Tabanca ' how many winning All Stars arrangements does anyone enjoy listening to . Most people in this forum that have even a little musical background will agree that it's very refreshing to hear some old arrangements from Holman , Bradley , Professor ,Rodney ,Jit and pellham to name a few but there are also some great arrangements that got lost and are much better to listen to after panorama than the eventual winners .
So even though we may not agree with the judging lets enjoy the good music provided by the 'MUSICAL CHAMPIONS ' of the competition !
Congrats to ALL the winners in 2011 panorama............All Stars haters, can kiss my difference!!
hmmmm.... im not sure where to start...
ok....first i would like to say a big CONGRATULATIONS to All Stars on their win. Wishing yall all the best.
good! now im not sure but someone can correct me....did they do this thing where the highest and lowest judge's score was taken off from the rest of marks? where they would use 6 judges (5 judges and an alternate, allowing the highest and lowest mark to be thrown out making the score still out of 300)....because i know at some part of the season it seems as if they would have done that...im just saying....maybe if that was done on final night, then that can play a part of why the results came out the way it did....if it was the normal 3 judges and an alternate then i cant say the reason for all the confusion 4 sure...
personally, it doesn't really bother me much who wins the competition because i believe that bands do put out a lot of time, energy and really good music into this every year after year...i don't see the reason for all the bashing around between members here and who thought who should have won...at d end of the day, all stars has already received their $2 mil and there isnt anything anyone can do now about it...i played with other large bands (silver stars and fonclaire), but i respected the judges decision...may the best band win next year.
Real All Stars people doh have to show off, it is what it is!
However, check me out in Boston for Carnival, Toronto for Caribana, and Brooklyn for Labor Day.
I'll be wearing my Trinidad All Stars colours :)
Some people just hate to admit it to themselves
