Hundreds of patrons booed the announcement that Machel Montano had won the 2011 International Power Soca Monarch competition, making off with the TT$2 million first prize.

There were reports that while many patrons expressed delight over Montano's victory as they exited the stadium, even more were crying foul, saying Iwer George, who placed second, was the true winner.

During Montano's performance a large portion of the audience kept chanting "Iwer, Iwer, Iwer" every time Montano instructed the band to lower the music for him to speak to the patrons.
