World Championship: Official Stream Archive from Official Finland

OULU, FINLAND — We present for you the stream from tonight’s show, followed by a long list of spoilers.

 

 

It was cold and rainy here all day, and before the show observers of the morning run saw Salmo salar, or Atlantic Salmon – Oulu’s second biggest export after salmiakki — swimming upstream unseasonably late. Pallot tuoksuvat voimakkaasti (“this night will be Airistotle’s”), remarked one old-timer. Pallot tuoksuvat voimakkaasti, indeed.

 

From AGWC:

 

The 22nd Air Guitar World Championships were held in Oulu, Finland in freezingly cold weather. Despite the poor weather conditions, the performances from the 15 finalists were steaming. The reigning champion, Matt “Airistotle” Burns (USA) defended his title successfully with the score of 35,4, only the fourth time in the contest´s 22 years of history. The runner ups, Patrick “Ehrwolf” Culek from Germany and Alexander “The Jinja Assassin” Roberts from Australia were tied for the second place with the score of 34,6. Third place went to Japanese 15-year-old Show-Show, who competed for the first time outside Japanese soil.

 

15 air guitarists from around the world competed in this year’s world finals. Here are the results:

Airistotle Featured on Nationwide NPR Morning Edition

It’s striking how 2016 USAG Champion AIRISTOTLE (Matt Burns) found time to give this interview when later today he has to defend his title against 2017 USAG Champion MOM JEANS JEANNIE (Nicole Sevcik) and a couple dozen other countries.

The full article by Jacob Pinter and accompanying audio can be found here.

This piece aired today, coast-to-coast, during the 8 o’clock drive to work. Nationwide, we have reports that more commuter coffee was spilled than drunk. So already we’ve melted faces, melted thighs, and it ain’t even breakfast yet.
