Terri Lyons is the new 2020 Calypso Monarch, becoming only the fifth woman to win the prized Carnival crown. The so­ca princess se­cured the crown, be­com­ing on­ly the fifth woman to win the ti­tle, and walk away with the $700,000 first prize.

She joins Calypso Rose (McCartha Lewis), Singing Sandra (Sandra DesVignes-Millington), Denyse Plummer and Karene Asche in the history books of women monarchs.

Asche, a stronger contender, placed second, with Heather McIntosh in third position, and this too was record as it is the first time the top three placings were women. The competition took place at Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain.

In a show where eight of the 12 fi­nal­ists were for­mer Ca­lyp­so Mon­archs them­selves, Ly­on’s win is all the sweet­er. Last year’s de­fend­ing monarch Ronal­do Lon­don end­ed up at the bot­tom of the re­sults list.

But asked if yes­ter­day’s win means that she is say­ing good­bye to the genre, she said “I can’t choose.” Al­ready a much sought-af­ter back­ground singer, Lyons has been per­form­ing through­out the sea­son with Kes the Band. Their duet “Throw Back Ting” has been get­ting air­play.

she said more needs to be done to pro­mote ca­lyp­so since it birthed so­ca. She called for ca­lyp­so to be per­formed not just in con­certs, but on the streets of Port-of-Spain through­out the year. “We need to bring new minds with­in the mar­ket­ing. I know that Tu­co has a page and stuff, but it needs to be more in peo­ple’s face, es­pe­cial­ly the youths,” she said.
