The 10th edition of the AGWC was held on August 26, 2005 in Club Teatria. A Dutchman, Michael "The Destroyer" Heffels, conquered the hearts of both the jury and the audience with his robotic performance on the background of which he had collaged Daft Punk's music. Heffels' show exuded a creative force that made history in the Air Guitar. The newly declared champion received a handmade Flying Finn guitar and an amp designed and donated to the contest by Queen guitarist Brian May.
