If you're not familiar with how an air guitar competition works, it is broken into two rounds, round 1 is freestyle where each person plays a song of their choice, and round 2 is compulsory where the top competitors from round 1 perform a surprise song. Each performance is one minute long, and competitors can pick what 60 seconds of a song is used. According to the official rules, instruments must be invisible and must be a guitar, and "air roadies" are allowed, but must leave the stage before the performance.
