Tomorrow Night Is The Regional US Air Guitar Championship Regional And Perhaps The Beginning Of A Journey To World Championship For One Talented Philadelhpian
We love how dry and serious this text is, but it’s really happening at Johnny Brenda’s tomorrow night and it shall be awesome, not only to perform but to observe the local air chops:
“Each US Regional will each consist of two rounds. In Round 1, each competitor performs to a song of their own choosing. In Round 2, the top competitors from Round 1 perform to a surprise compulsory song. In each round, contestants perform for one minute of a song and are judged on a combination of technical merit, stage presence, and “airness.” All guitars must be invisible. In each city, the jury is a panel of independent judges that is hand picked by US Air Guitar. The results of the jury cannot be protested.
One winner from each city will be flown to a TBA city on this summer to compete in the US Air Guitar Finals for the crown of US Air Guitar Champion. The 2012 US Champ will then be sent to Oulu, Finland to represent the USA in the World Championships, where he or she will compete against national champions from all around the world.”
It’s not too late to sign up! It’ll be hosted by Bjorn Turoque, the star of the movie Air Guitar Nation, and you’ll get judged by Hot Lixx Hulahan (!), the 2008 US and World Air Guitar CHAMP.
