    The Excellence in Music and Entertainment (EME) Awards Announced

    A successful evening, despite a late start.

    The Excellence in Music and Entertainment (EME) Awards have been announced. It would appear the evening was a great success, despite a late start to the proceedings just as last year, with many artists and guests still lining up to have pictures taken on the red carpet at the scheduled 8pm start time.

    Many of the recipients were there to collect their awards and those that could not make it sent representatives to collect their awards and/or thanked the audience via video clips.

    There were many performances as well from artistes like Romain Virgo, Wasp, Hezron, Jodian Pantry, Nicky B, Cherine Anderson, Nadine Sutherland, Tami Chynn, Wayne Marshall and Gramps Morgan who also performed a duet with India Arie who jointly won the International Friend of Reggae award, with Melanie Fiona.
    All these performances coupled with a late start and it meant the party went on late into the night.
