Alvin Livingstone has left the country. The soca semifinalist had planned, and paid for, a Mediterranean cruise back in 2017.
Once qualifying for the semis, Livingstone had since tried, but was unsuccessful, in changing his travel plans to accommodate the Flow Party Monarch semifinals tomorrow evening at the Antigua Recreation Grounds. As such, semifinal fans will not get to see him perform Bout to Get Started (groovy) and YOLO (jumpy).
His slots in both sections go to Lyrical Reds in the groovy section and Dwight Frederick in the jumpy.

When asked as to the state of readiness for the upcoming show, Party monarch chairman Herbert “Burga” Joseph said, “Just about.”
“No one is ever fully ready, but we are still in a continuous process of being ready until show time.”
In recent weeks, the chairman and committee have been making various stops leading up to the semifinals to include Jam Corner on Nevis Street and the Dumbztree Lime in All Saints.
He said that he anticipates, “A great show. I’ve been getting very good feedback everywhere we’ve gone.”
Groovy contestants will receive an appearance fee of $1,000 while the jumpy contestants will receive $1,500.
All artists will be backed by the Flow Party Monarch band.
The entrance fee for semifinal night is $20.
