  1. Can't understand how he won his songs were alright but not at all up to par with some of the other contestants. Interesting that ashanti didn't place in the top 4 both of his songs were good in my opinion.

  2. MINELL's song makes more sense than all the performers and as a young individual i saw that her song was nothing but the truth. She should have won.

  6. Agreed, furthermore am really disappointed with Naham Jn. Baptiste, cause for all the hits he has produced, there is no reason why he had to give Menell the weakest song of her career (Back pains) to defend her crown. It begs the question for his motives, especially after she experimented with a new writer on (Power of the Words). DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!

  7. Congratulations King Walleigh, well done. Bask in your glory.

    Congratulations also to Nintus.

    The educators represented. Continue being role models to our young people in particular. Keep the art form alive.

    Acknowledgment to all participants.

  8. Congrats to Walleigh, but I find it indigestible that he was a clear 17 points better than Menell. Power of the Words alone was a far more constructed and delivered than both of Walleigh's songs. But the judges decisions are final.
