Defending Monarch Peter Ram places third.

Lil Rick swept the competition with an energetic, patriotic rendition of Iz A Bajan that earned him a score of 100 points.

In second place was Mr Blood with 62 points, defending monarch Peter Ram earned 58 points for third place and in fourth place was Mikey with 50 points.

Lil Rick brought the crowd to life in what was a generally low-key competition. Delivering the only picong on the night, he highlighted things Bajan and made a cheeky comment about the new songwriting trends in Crop Over when he reminded everyone that, “This song wasn’t written by any Trinidadian!”

After his performance, Rick said he wanted to write an upbeat, “cheerleader” song to celebrate Barbados in its 50th year of Independence.

He emphasised, “Barbados, I love you!”

Lil Rick last won the Party Monarch crown in 2007, and now has a total of five Party Monarch titles.
