The Road March will be evaluated on J’ouvert morning exclusively, with the competition being assessed in three distinct locations: The Circus, Bay Road (Pelican Mall), and Church Street.
Each contender’s 5 minute performance will be meticulously scored by three judges at each point, with a comprehensive 100-point system that appraises performance, music, lyrics, and crowd response.
The contenders will have a single round to impress the judges and the crowd, which will take place between the prime Carnival hours of 6-10am. To maintain the integrity of the competition, independent DJs will not be permitted to influence the scoring in any way, ensuring that the points are awarded strictly based on the contenders’ performances.
In the vibrant spirit of Carnival, the SKNNCC seeks to celebrate a clear victor. Should a tie occur, the contender with the highest points in performance will be declared the winner.
