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.

Jake Paul claims he’s hospitalized ahead of Mike Tyson undercard fight

YouTube star Jake Paul shook up the boxing world after being confirmed for the upcoming Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. exhibition match — but his statement from a recent press conference is sparking rumors that he may not be fit to compete.

The youngest Paul brother boasts a short, if successful, boxing history; after defeating fellow influencer Deji on the undercard of Logan Paul’s August 2018 bout, Jake took his talents to the professional level, taking out YouTuber AnEsonGib in a first round KO in January 2020.

Now, Jake has been confirmed to fight on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. against ex-NBA star Nate Robinson — but some are wondering if he’ll even appear in the ring.

An October 29 press conference saw an unexpected development from Jake’s side, with the YouTuber-turned-boxing pro appearing from what seemed to be a hospital room.

ESPN journalist Ariel Helwani was understandably taken aback by the scenery, and asked Jake where he was — which lead to a surprising, if a bit humorous, answer.

“Uh, I’m just chilling man, I came to the hospital to get a little check up,” he replied.

When asked why he was at the hospital, the YouTuber had an even more astonishing response: “We were having a little morning practice, and my team was afraid that I was turning into Iron Man. I punched a hole through a car.”

Needless to say, it seems like Robinson isn’t worried if his opponent will show up on fight night, claiming that Paul “has to show up” in spite of his purported injury.

However, some fans are claiming that they think Paul has a black eye, or even a broken nose, although his mask admittedly makes it a bit difficult to see if these alleged injuries are for real.

This isn’t the first time Jake has taken a trip to the hospital before a fight, and it may not be his last — but considering his ambition and near-constant training, fans can expect that he will turn up for the show (although whether he will “turn out” is still up in the air).
