You’ve heard of ‘America’s Got Talent’, ‘The Masked Singer’ and a few other shows that showcase people doing something amazing. Well, looks like Twitch wants to get in on the action with a brand new competition called “Twitch Sings: Stream Star”.
This is for all you current streamers who take to the stage every day and put on their best performance. Twitch wants you to put on a show, with some very nice prizes in store. A great idea and one that makes me wonder why we haven’t seen anything like this before.
Introducing Twitch Sings: Stream Star, our first EVER singing competition. Win a trip to TwitchCon Europe to compete, live on-stage, for $20,000.

Good luck to everyone that signs up and competes. I don’t know why, but I’m excited about this. I’ve watched my fair share of amazing performers on Twitch and this contest should intense many of those to get out and strut their stuff. If anything, this is going to make for some great performances, some laughs and a good time for all. I’m down with that.
