Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is one of the world’s most popular streamers, and he rounded out his year by surpassing 20 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ninja is most famous for playing Fortnite on Twitch, where he regularly attracts over 100,000 viewers to his stream – and is widely considered to be the most popular Fortnite streamers on Earth.

Earlier in 2018, Ninja was joined by Rapper Drake on stream, and roughly 628,000 concurrent viewers watched the two play, which was at the time a new record.

On YouTube, videos of his Fortnite gameplay on Twitch regularly surpass 1 million views within a day of being uploaded.

Ninja announced the milestone on Twitter on Tuesday, November 27, with a gif of his YouTube subscriber count rolling past 20 million.

20 million subscribers on YouTube is no small feat, but for Ninja, it’s just another accomplishment in a year most could only dream about.

With little over a month left in 2018, there’s still plenty of time for Ninja to knock out some other achievement before looking ahead to 2019.

Is Dixie D’Amelio performing at the Grammys? Twitter reignites wild nominee rumor

Twitter has reignited the wild rumors that Dixie D’Amelio could be performing at the Grammys, and might even win an award. However, that isn’t the case, and here’s why.

A few of the biggest social media stars will, ultimately, crossover into the mainstream and appear on TV, get roles in movies, and some will even go into music.

With the rise of TikTok, there have been a few creators who’ve done all three – with the biggest of which being the D’Amelio’s, Charli, and Dixie. The former appeared in a Super Bowl commercial while Dixie has dropped a few songs, and even had features from One Direction’s Liam Payne.

Now, with awards season on the horizon, Twitter has reignited a rumor about her potentially being up for a Grammy and even performing at the annual show. However, that’s not likely to be the case.

Will Dixie D’Amelio sing at the Grammys?

Back in late December, Dixie responded to a wild set of rumors that she, alongside controversial rapper 6ix9ine, would be opening the Grammys with a performance of one of her songs.

“LMAOOO STOP,” she tweeted, on her now-deleted account. “I’m being set up at this point oh my god,” Dixie added in a follow-up post, before joking that a few fans had been a bit too gullible in eating up the rumor.

Ultimately, to perform at the show, you have to be nominated and Dixie hasn’t made the cut. So, despite Twitter bring the rumor back up, we’ll see probably see someone like Dua Lipa, or Coldplay, or even Beyonce strut their stuff instead.

Is Dixie D’Amelio nominated for a Grammy?

As above, no, Dixie has not been nominated for a Grammy for either of her songs that would be eligible – One Whole Day or Naughty List.

Even though it’s gotten some incredible buzz, her song Roommates is not eligible for this year’s Grammys show because it was released way after the cutoff date for voting. Maybe next year, though?

So, if you’re expecting to see Dixie at the Grammys, the only hope you’ve got is if she’s there as part of the crowd or on the red carpet. Someone might even use TikTok dances in their performance and slip one of her videos in, who knows.

However, she won’t be performing any of her own songs, so, sorry to disappoint anyone who may have been expecting it.
