“It’s all in the hands of the public,” says Chief Executive Officer of Barbados TODAY Inc Kaymar Jordan, who is satisfied with the strong response to the inaugural competition.

Sixty two entrants have submitted their songs and according to Jordan, it’s shaping up to be a keen contest.

 “We really have a great mix of competitors and it’s good to see some of the popular faces from the entertainment scene and even more so the not so familiar faces who stepped out to share their creativity.

“The BT Crop Over Superstar Crop Over competition is our contribution to the national festival. We wanted to lure even more Barbadians at home and abroad to support and keep our creativity alive. Good music has always been a part of our rich cultural history and we want to ensure that doesn’t change.”

Big names including Soca Queen Alison Hinds, HypaSounds, Mikey, Blood and Mistah Dale are in the line-up.
