While FaZe Clan‘s Nate Hill is usually known most for his Fortnite skills, he recently stunned fans with his amazing singing voice in a cover song from the popular 2018 movie A Star is Born.

The 2018 remake of A Star is Born starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper was a hit success with musical fans, with the popstar even winning the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Actress for her performance.

FaZe Clan’s Nate Hill recently teamed up with American singer Madilyn Hill to perform a cover of ‘Shallow’ from the movie, and fans were in total shock over how good his singing voice is.

Warner Bros. Pictures‘Shallow’ is performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in the movie.

His voice is amazing

‘Shallow’ is one of the movie’s top songs, so it’s no surprise that the pair chose that song to cover. Nate also showed that he’s a talented guitar player too, as he strummed the acoustic guitar perfectly while they sang together.

At one point, the two singers harmonize, and this is where their voices shine, and really capture the spirit of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. It’s almost difficult to think of Nate as a pro Fortnite player when he sings that well – did he choose the wrong career?

“Thanks so much to Madilyn Bailey for doing this with me, shes insanely talented. Thanks to her husband James for filming And to Asivrs for putting it together.” he said in a caption under the video.

The esports star then addressed his longtime fans, saying, ” I know its not Fortnite related, but a few people were here on my YouTube before Fortnite so its nice to remember the original subs too!”

He’s not the only pro to sing a Gaga song

Overwatch star Félix ‘xQc‘ Lengyel decided to giving singing a go during his June 14 stream, playing popular karaoke game Twitch Sings for his audience. 

While he was nowhere as good as Nate Hill, his performances were still absolutely hilarious, and provided viewers with some top notch entertainment. 

The Canadian streamer decided to cover Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance’, where he struggled to keep up with the song’s fast paced beat. You have to watch the clip to truly see how funny it is – words don’t do it justice.

In xQc’s case, he is no Nate Hill when it comes to his singing skills. But at least he could have fun with it, which is what Twitch is all about.

Joe Rogan has been forced to cancel the next week of guests lined up for his podcast, including superstar Kanye West, after one of the host’s staff member returned a positive test result meaning the team must now isolate.

The Joe Rogan Experience is one of the most popular podcasts in the world listened to by millions of people each week, but the next slate of episodes has hit a major snag.

On Oct. 19, Rogan announced on Instagram that the show would be cancelling all the podcasts for the upcoming week after Jamie Vernon, the producer of the show, tested positive forcing the rest of the cast to self-isolate.

“Young Jamie Vernon tested positive today. I tested negative, the rest of the staff tested negative, but Jamie tested positive,” Rogan revealed in the video. “He thought he had a sinus infection or allergies. The episodes that aired last week we had previously recorded so I hadn’t seen Jamie in about nine days.”

Despite testing positive the former Fear-Factor host assured everyone his tech wizard was on the mend, but added he and the rest of his staff would be cancelling shows for safety reasons for the next week.

“So, we cancelled all the shows. We’re happy he has a mild case, but we cancelled all the shows. I’m keeping away from everybody and testing myself and the staff everyday until we’re in the clear, there’s nothing we can do,” the podcaster added. “I won’t know when we’ll do them [podcasts] again until we get a clear from the doctor. I think it’s ten days and three negative test results in a row.”

Sadly, this means fans will miss out on the highly-anticipated show featuring Kanye West, who was scheduled as a guest for the Friday, October 23 program.

Rogan didn’t completely rule out having the podcast in some form or another though, adding that he was looking into doing shows remotely or some shows with a substitute producer (which he wasn’t too keen on).

After offering apologies to all of the guests and fans affected by the news, the host summed it up as a “f***ed up situation,” but it will be interesting to see how they actually go about producing the show, and if they can still get Yeezy on.
