The Dress: Joel Was Man Enough To Wear It ... And Has Tara's Crown To Prove It.
|Tara Banks and Joel Davis at the Calypso Monarch contest in Toronto|
Last night's Calypso Monarch competition had an ending that made one cross dresser happy and had the competition's most winning singer losing to her imitator!
The Dress had the standing-room-only crowd of 300+ singing along, dancing in the aisles and whooping their support for Macomere CeeCee!
Earlier in the evening the real Macomere Fifi, had received a similar reception with many giving her a standing ovation for her song Soca Quest. Her performance was strong, her voice pure and her message loud and clear. In any other year it was a winning routine.
The judges spent almost an hour looking over the results while MC Dick Lochan and the Ossie Gurley And The Truth kept adding verses to every song they knew to keep the audience in the hall!

Tara Woods was not shut out. She placed second in the Monarch and won Best Lyrics. She was also the first on stage to cheer, hug and congratulate Mr Macromere CeeCee.
Both Macomere CeeCee and Macomere FiFi will perform their songs Monday afternoon at Harbourfront along with many of the other Monarch contestants. Calypso Stars Monday, August 1, 2016
