Machel Montano and SuperBlue will to defend their crown onย “Fantastic Friday” against crowd favorites like boss Iwer George, 2014 artist to watch Erphaan Alves, Destra, Farmer Nappy and Ravi B, not to mention international upstarts Mr. Killa (Grenada) and Skinny Fabulous (St. Vincent and the Grenadines). Artists will be taking up their performances up a notch even from the already-raucous semi-finals last welk: With 2 million TTD up for grabs, we’re expecting their worst behavior.
