As we reported on our live stream this morning, the 19th Annual Air Guitar World Championships are underway in Oulo, Finland.

Organizers call the event, which runs from August 27-30, “a surprisingly entertaining show that offers dazzling performances with and without instruments.”

They’re not kidding!

The reigning World Air Guitar Champion is from the United States.
