It's been a staple in the T&T Carnival for several years and has grown into the biggest show of each Carnival season.
And Machel Montano delivered once again in Machel Montano 2019 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium last Monday.

Soca star Machel Montano has come to the rescue of an unsponsored steelband which had been struggling to prepare for the Panorama competition.
After reading the Sunday Guardian’s article Diamonds in the rough highlighting the plight of George Street-based Blue Diamonds Steel Orchestra, Montano decided to help.
Yesterday Machel’s mother, Elizabeth “Lady” Montano, met with the band’s captain Wayne St Clair Babb and secretary Judith Chambers to determine exactly how the Machel Montano Foundation for Greatness will assist.
Soca artiste and reigning Road March champion Machel Montano launched his 2019 album and Road March contribution at The Residence lounge at One Woodbrook Place Thursday night.

The full album and song were released on the airwaves on Friday.
Road March winner Machel Montano has thrown his support behind the initiative for Tobago to have its own Carnival.
Since 2011, there have been calls for Tobago to have its own Carnival instead of having celebrations the same time as Trinidad.
Montano gave his take on the issue during his performance at the Call to Paradise premium all-inclusive event at the Magdalena Grand Beach Resort on Saturday.
Montano urged those in authority to be brave and grasp the opportunity for Trinidad and Tobago to have separate Carnivals on each island.
