Congratulations to Dominica's Tarina Simon on being crowned the Digicel Rising Star, 2007. Tough luck Antigua for being the runners up once again but Tarina was simply the best. Maybe, the third time would be the charm but I suspect the other islands would have something to say about that. For sure Dominica would love to repeat(which I think they can) while the Vincies would be keen to get back to their winning ways. I enjoyed Kyron Baptiste and Peter Ram's performance of "Woman by my Side" towards the end of the show. As an aside am still confused as to why Kyron didn't see it appropriate to perform his single "love at first wine". However, the rendition was really spirited with the two finalists dancing along on stage with them. Then there was Tarina singing, what else but "Simply the best" after she was announced as the winner. I will miss my regular Sunday night dose of Rising stars but before I blink Season 4 will be right at my door.
Good luck with more hard work ahead and God's speed Empress Tarina!
