Face-melting faux guitar and a pair of furry red legwarmers led Matt “Romeo DanceCheetah” Cornelison to victory at the National Finals of the U.S. Air Guitar Championships at Irving Plaza Thursday night.

DanceCheetah, from Milwaukee, will go on to represent the United States at the World Championships in Oulu, Finland. He played Daft Punk’s “Robot Rock” on his way to the title.

The champion came dressed in cheetah-print leggings, a flare-collared top and a massive belt buckle emblazoned with his initials.

“My mom helped me out with this belt,” he said.

Cornelison beat out Ryan “Dreamcatcher” Laman, who played The Eagles’ “Witchy Woman” in the final air-off.

The event’s judges were comedian Myk Kaplan, talk-show host Rachel Maddow and her on-air contributor Kent Jones, and “Daily Show” correspondent Jason Jones. [DNA Info]
