Choose contestants that you know will really “ham it up” on stage. Find some music that has a lot of guitar solos. Tell the contestants each will be judged (by the audience’s applause) on how well each can play the “air guitar”. Send each contestant in one at a time, so that “ideas” won’t be stolen! It is hilarious to see what these kids can come up with!
By the way, there really is a World Air Guitar Contest each year. Check out this story: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4547805.stm
