Guitar Idol is an international online talent competition for unknown guitarists. The guitarists compete through 3 online heats and one online knock-out round, for a chance to fill 12 places to play at the London International Music Show.[1]

The competition has been running since 2008.[2] The competition was postponed in 2010 due to the London International Music Show not having sufficient funds to go ahead with it that year.
