Digicel Rising Stars has announced that Craigy T will no longer be able to fulfil his responsibilities as judge due to his hectic summer schedule with TOK.

Though he was able to start Season 11 with the five islandwide auditions through May-June, Craigy T's summer obligations with his internationally acclaimed group now requires him to travel more than he originally expected.

"Yeah, I'm kinda bummed about not being able to finish the season, I love working with new talent. However, it just couldn't be avoided. With my schedule, coupled with TOK's calendar, I would miss about 10 of the 12 live performance shows. That wouldn't make sense. So it go. All things considered, I'm looking forward to seeing you all again next year," Craigy T said.

DRS producer Sharon Schroeter says the team is disappointed but understands: "We will definitely miss Craig this season, but we understand completely."

The Digicel Rising Stars producers have decided to invite weekly guest judges to replace Craigy T for Season 11. Live shows for Season 11 began yesterday on TVJ with the first seven of the top 14 chosen from auditions.
