Chucky reigns supreme at Dimanche Gras

Roderick "Chucky" Gordon captured the 2014 Calypso Monarch title at Sunday's Dimanche Gras presentation at the Queen's Park Savannah in Port of Spain.

Singing in position eight, the reigning Independence Calypso Monarch delivered two well-received renditions of "Wey Yuh Think" and "Wedding Of De Century" to wrest the crown from Eric "Pink Panther" Taylor, who placed eleventh.

Kurt Allen, who sang "Sweet Sizzling Summer" and "The Lost Psalm Of King David", had to settle for the runner-up position for the third consecutive year.

Third place went to Selvon "Mistah Shak" Noel, who delivered "Bois" and "Crime Round De Clock."
