Streamer Maya Higa give one of Twitch’s most famous clips new life when she broke into a beautiful rendition of Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s classic setup rant.

Maya is one of the breakout stars of 2019 on Twitch, skyrocketing to the top of the platform’s Just Chatting section thanks to her amazing animal-based live streams, and hilarious moments with her boyfriend Mizkif.

The streamer is also a good singer, and one of her first broadcasts saw her singing to her audience saw her make $900 in donations, something that lead to an awkward but hilarious conversation with her parents.

Maya still breaks out into song occasionally on her channel, and during her November 14 stream, debuted an amazing new version of one of Twitch’s iconic moments.

Mayahiga has blown up since joining Twitch in early 2019.

While singing memes suggested by her Twitch chat, her audience started posting the words to xQc’s rant about how elaborate some streaming setups are, comparing them to the kind of thing NASA uses to fly spaceships.

The 21-year-old broke into a beautiful version, but even she couldn’t make it the whole way through, breaking down into fits of laughter once she got to the part about using cameras to show their pets on stream.

The song was incredibly accurate though, and if you want to compare it to the original version screamed by the former Overwatch pro, you can watch it below.

Unsurprisingly, Maya’s viewers were delighted with the song, spamming her chat with praise and reactions as she laughed at the meme, with some suggesting that she slam the desk just like xQc does when games like Overwatch aren’t going this way.

The streamer has yet to react to his fellow streamer’s version of the song, but it’s very likely he’ll have something to say, although who knows what could come out of the mouth of xQc.
