Canadian contestant, Maude Francato who goes by the stage name Moo Moo was crown International Dance hall Queen 2007 at the finals held at the Montego Bay Pier One Complex on July 28, 2007. Angered by the judges' decisions many patrons displayed their disapproval by throwing bottles and other objects on stage.

The judges unrelentingly held fast to their decisions. This was Moo Moo's third year in a row, entering this contest. In winning the Red Label Wine sponsored International Dancehall Queen competition Francato collects $300,000 Jamaican Dollars plus the championship trophy. First Runner Up was Kadian Reid, she collects $200,000 while second runner up Lady Lynn collects $150,000.

The competition has outgrown the venue which saw over 10,000 patrons in attendance. Girls from Big Head Clothing also took part in a fashion show segment. Promoter and founder of the Dancehall Queen competition, Brian "Big Head" Martin, outdid himself again with the staging of another successful contest.
