HAS PANORAMA CHANGE FOR THE BETTER ?

AFTER MIGRATING TO THE USA IN THE LATE 60Ts AND BEING A PAN FANATIC. PANORAMA HAS BEEN MY FAVORITE LOVE IN CARNIVAL. I HAVE ONLY MISS 4 PANORAMA FINALS SINCE 1975. BEING IN GRAND STAND ON FINAL NIGHT GIVES ME GOOSE BUMPS AND A ERRATIC HEART RHYTHM, ESPECIALLY WHEN MY FAVORITE BAND IS COMING ON STAGE. EVERY YEAR I THINK THEY CAN NOT BEAT MY BAND AND THINK WE  WIN THE PANORAMA FOR SURE. SO IS EVERYBODY WHO HAVE THEIR FAVORITE BAND. FOR SOME YEARS NOW IT SEEMS THAT THE JUDGING OF PANORAMA HAS CHANGE TO A DIFFERENT LEVEL.LEAVING ME IN A BALL OF CONFUSION, AS TO WHAT SOME BANDS ARE PLAYING. AH HEAR THEY SAY THE JUDGES JUDGING MUSIC AND NOT NOISE OR EXCITEMENT. I AM INVITING ANYONE WHO COULD EXPLAIN TO ME  WHY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS OF PLAYING A CALYPSONIAN CALYPSO FOR PANORAMA, SO ALL MASQUERADERS,PANORAMA LOVERS AND SPECTATORS COULD UNDERSTAND THE TUNES AND KNOW WHAT THE BANDS PLAYING.THAT PEOPLE  COULD JUMP UP TO, ON THE ROAD FOR CARNIVAL.. SOME WELL KNOWN BANDS ARE PLAYING TUNES THAT IS FITTED FOR PAN FESTIVAL OR CARNEGIE HALL CLASSIC (NO CARNIVAL SPRITE) IN THE TUNE. SEEMS EVERYBODY IS A CALYPSONIAN NOW AND WE ONLY HAVE ONE GENIUS ARRANGER THAT COULD TAKE ANY TUNE OR SOCIAL COMMENTARY AND MAKE IT A WINNING PANORAMA SELECTION. WILL WE GET BACK  PANORAMA AS IT WAS INTENDED FOR ?NEED HELP TO UNDERSTAND.
