Popular Twitch personality Félix ‘xQc‘ Lengyel sent his viewers into hysterics by showing them his amazing singing voice while playing Twitch Sings during his June 14 broadcast.

While the Canadian-born streamer is widely known for his amazing Overwatch skills, he livestreams a lot of other types of content on Twitch too.

His June 14 broadcast took a musical turn, as he decided to play a few rounds of karaoke in Twitch Sings – and the results were too funny.

He wants your love

The first song xQc decided to sing was Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance’ – an electropop ballad released in 2009. “Rah rah ah ah ah ro-mah ro-mah-mah!” he begins, almost speaking instead of singing, and completely out of time and beat with the song. “Gaga oh-la-la want your bad romance!”

He then continues to sing the lyrics too quickly, obviously unfamiliar with the song, before waiting for the music to catch up. “I want your love. Love, love, love, I want your love!”

He could shatter glass with his high notes

The streamer then decided to honor Freddie Mercury’s memory with a questionable rendition of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. 

After he smashed the first verse, he continued on into the chorus, shouting the iconic line “MAMAAAAA, OOOOOOH!” with the grandeur of a strangled cat.

“Y’all gotta turn your speakers down, bro!” he laughs, as viewers comment on how loud he was.

“Country roads, take me home”

xQc’s best performance was a cover of John Denver’s ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ – a song which blew up across the internet, and inspired many memes.

He actually sings the song quite well compared to the other songs he covered, and really got into the spirit. “Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge mountains, Shenandoah River,” he starts, before belting the chorus. “Country roads, take me home! To the place I belonggggg!”

His Twitch Sings session was absolutely hilarious – even if he did prove that his esports career was his best decision.

Who knows, maybe we’ll see xQc on Canadian Idol in the future.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

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.
