U.S. Air Guitar Nationals
The 16 top-placing monsters of mock-rock from the semi-finals take on the reigning champ, and the winner leaves immediately for the world championship match in Oulu, Finland. Each contestant plays one song they’ve selected beforehand and one surprise tune chosen by the judges. Challengers are judged on three things: Technical Merit, Stage Presence, and the most elusive quality, Airness. Take a look at some of the star players from this year’s roster:<p>
