Twitch star Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo was floored when he found out one of his subscribers was a famous classically-trained singer on Britain’s Got Talent.

Mizkif has one of the most popular channels on Twitch, pulling in thousands of viewers a broadcast. However during his April 30 stream, he was shocked to find out that someone in his chat was famous.

The personality was talking to his friend RajjPatel, who revealed that contestant Jonathan Antoine on Britain’s Got Talent was a fan. The streamer was then floored by the singer’s incredible abilities.

Mizkif stunned by singer being subbed

Antoine went on the talent show in 2012, and was one half of the singing duo ‘Charlotte & Jonathan.’ However during his April 30 stream, Mizkif discovered that the singer was not only in his chat, but had been subbed to him for months.

The streamer cracked a smile while watching a viral clip of the singer performing that had over 126 million views. He then pulled up a log of the artist’s Twitch messages and began to laugh.

“This guy spammed Destiny lost this debate OMEGALUL,” he exclaimed, to which Rajj jokingly replied, “Don’t expose his logs, let him live peacefully!” Mizkif couldn’t contain himself and broke into laughter.

The popular streamer then watched the Britain’s Got Talent contestant sing ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ by John Denver, and exclaimed, “Dude, imagine if he did the Twitch Emote song!”

Turning towards his audience, he said, “He probably knows it!” Hilariously, the singer was in his chat and replied, “THAT WAS IN MY HEAD WHILE RECORDING,” to which Mizkif replied, “Dude, 100%, that’s so funny.”

He then asked the famous artist if he would collaborate with musicians ‘Sordiway’ & ‘Koaster Music’ known for their Twitch-based songs. “Dude, Jonathan, crazy question. I know you are super busy. Would you ever do a song with Sordiway and Koaster music?” to which he responded, “Yeah gladly, I love those guys!”

As streamers continue to be one of the top forms of entertainment in the world, it’s not too surprising to find out they might have famous viewers. If nothing else, this is an example of you never know who could be in your chat.

Mizkif continues to be one of the most watched personalities on the Amazon-owned platform. At the time of writing, he’s amassed over 400k followers to his channel, and consistently pulls in a large audience each broadcast.

Twitter erupts as Tommyinnit leaks Addison Rae in Dream SMP Minecraft server

Worlds collide and Twitter explodes as Twitch streamer Tommyinnit surprisingly leaked that TikTok superstar Addison Rae is in the Dream SMP (survival multiplayer) Minecraft Discord server.

Founded by the Dream Team, the private, whitelisted Dream SMP Minecraft server is a world of roleplay, drama and, above all else, entertainment. Familiar with their fair share of intriguing characters, fans are now pushing the limits of curiosity and excitement at the possibility that a mainstream, TikTok icon could be stepping into the Minecraft players, Twitch streamers and YouTubers’ arena.

Dream, the faceless persona behind the server, has a hefty 16 million subscribers on YouTube. Tommyinnit, the teenage Englishman and one of the world’s fastest-growing streamers, has 3 million followers on Twitch. Rae, who jumped into fame for clean dance moves, has 34 million followers on Instagram and 75 million on TikTok.

During a Twitch stream, Tommyinnit couldn’t contain himself as he noticed Rae in the Dream SMP’s Discord general channel. Expressing serious surprise and confusion, the streamer discussed her presence and quickly lit social media ablaze as fans debate what said presence could entail.

While gaming once felt like a niche domain, internet celebs like Rae and James Charles, or even US politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have all dabbled in the streaming world at the height of Among Us popularity. 

Unfortunately, Rae’s specific crossover experience in the Twitch streaming world was less than ideal as she encountered serious backlash for her Among Us session with Pokimane, Corpse Husband and, in what could now be considered a sneak peek, Dream.

Undeterred by that hate, it appears that Rae’s interest in gaming is unfazed. And, to the delight of those who prefer positive energy over hate, the Dream SMP fans seem to be taking this leak in a much funnier, confusedly entertained light than Twitch chat had.

It remains unclear whether or not Rae will take an actual role within the Dream SMP or if she was simply testing the water by joining the Discord. When Tommyinnit later tried inviting the TikTok superstar to voice chat, she ignored the request, prompting him to jokingly call her a “d**khead.”

With this leaked quasi-involvement already thrusting social media into a frenzied state, one can only imagine the potential for content if “Draem SMP” becomes a reality.
