Popular Overwatch pro Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is more than a top gamer – he even showed off his singing prowess during a karaoke stream on June 14, a decision that fellow streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys found “hilarious.”

Rather than hopping into a game of Overwatch, xQc broke it down during a ‘Twitch Sings’ stream, jamming out to such tunes as Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance’ and Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’

While xQc gave quite the performance, Pokimane couldn’t help but laugh at his efforts, poking fun at how seriously he seemed to be taking the stream despite his less-than-savory singing skills.

“I love how xQc does this,” Pokimane laughed, holding up her hand to mimic the Canadian streamer. “Like he’s really gonna try. Like, this is where I hit my high note. Then he just goes, ‘HEYYYY, I JUST MET YOU.’ But you can really see the effort with the hand motion.”

Despite his off-key singing, Pokimane congratulated xQc on giving the song hist best shot, finding his rendition of Carly Rae Jepsen’s viral single, “freakin’ hilarious.”

“He’s freakin’ hilarious,” Pokimane continued. “He’s giving it, like, a legitimate effort, and that’s all that you can really ask of people, you know?”

xQc’s Karaoke stream was nothing short of gut-busting, with the Canadian gaming pro appearing to have never heard Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance,’ as evidenced by his grating rendition of the opening lyrics to the song.

However, xQc’s take on John Denver’s ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ was actually quite pleasant, with the streamer seeming to take the song quite seriously, as per Pokimane’s comments on the subject.

His singing of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ was less than stellar, though, with xQc appearing to poke fun at his own limited register when belting out the tune’s high notes.

While xQc made the right decision moving into an esports career, his karaoke stream was nothing short of “freakin’ hilarious,” providing a slew of laugh-worthy moments.

Both Pokimane and xQc are some of Twitch’s top talent, boasting over 3 million and 1 million followers on the platform, respectively.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
