Not If I Tried...

I couldn't make this shit up.


Welcome to the officialUS Air Guitar Championships
www.airguitarusa.com


RULES OF COMPETITION - The US Air Guitar Championships obey the rules set forth by the Air Guitar World Championships:

-Each performance is played to one minute (60 seconds) of a song chosen by the performer or the event organizers
- The 60 seconds can start anywhere in the song
- The instrument must be invisible and must be a guitar, i.e. air drums are not permitted but air bass is permitted
- Personal air roadies are allowed, but they must leave the stage before the performance begins
- Back-up bands (air or real) are not allowed

The US regional heats will each consist of two rounds:

- Round 1: each competitor performs to a song of their own choosing
- Round 2: the top five from round 1 perform to a surprise obligatory song selected by the organizers. The obligatory song is the same for every contestant ­ contestants will all hear the song before going on stage

In each city, the jury is a panel of three independent judges. The results of the jury cannot be protested. To evaluate the contestants, the judges use the same evaluation system as international figure skating. Each judge scores the contestants from 4.0 to 6.0 points, based on: technical ability, stage presence and "airness."


(Who knew figure skaters were judged on "airness?")
