    Thar show was ridged from the start. Number one how can costume designers send a contestant on stage with an incomplete costume. It was done on purpose so that jewel would get the edge over Jearnele on the night. Jewels costume was well done Even over done compared to Jearnele costume which was clearly incomplete and watered down. Mark you they were made by the same team. Jearnelle is the true winner and not Jewel. That’s why school participation is on the low and will continue to drop.

      rubbish you talking….number one costume was not made by the same team, it was done by her school and that was not a costume it was a spectacular wear. and i work with this costume house , so tell me where were you when the costume was being built, no one showed up for this child, the design was untidy. we had to make it look like something, none of you came in regards to her costume and state what you like or dont like…So stop your pointing fingers. sore loser….

    Her mother was a judge? If that is true, well that is just bias. I wouldn’t want to compete in a show where my competitor’s mother is a judge. On the other hand, I would love to compete in a show where my mother is a judge. Can you guess why???

And i said to myself that child is amazing. Crown well deserved…congrats…by the way that talent was best talent in my opinion and i came supporting atkinson primary.

      i really dont get some Dominicans like you and you all negativity. her mother wasnt any judge…the judges there could be her mother’s mother and grand mother and father so stop with all the negativity. the JUDGES DISCISION IS FINAL!!! Besides majority of the prizes she won was chosen by the crowd (facebookers)…and as her talent said thats her thing…she likes the stage so she did exceptionally well to deserve that crown. so stop hating because no one is gonna take off the crown on her head.
