Sing Your Dialect Causes Chaos On Twitter As Thousands Join Celebs For Live Karaoke
| Last updated
What links rap god Lethal Bizzle with former US President Barack Obama? Well, they both love a bit of karaoke.
The pair were just a couple of the many, many thousands who joined in with the lively 'Sing Your Dialect' session on Twitter Spaces yesterday (22 November). You can listen to Lethal Bizzle's performance, along with that of an enthusiastic non-celeb, below:
If you don't know what I'm talking about, I truly feel sorry for you. Truly.
The historic event saw some of the country's most famous famous - and not so famous - faces enjoy a bit of late night karaoke, with the likes of Mr Bizzle, who gave an incredible rendition of Oasis hit 'Wonderwall'.
Among the 40,000 listeners were also YouTuber KSI, ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage, West Ham footballer Declan Rice, Micah Richards, Manchester United and even pizza giant Domino's.
Eclectic to say the least.
I once joined a Twitter Space with the richest football club in the world, Paddy Power, Nigel Farage, Dominos and the Somali Embassy to listen to Shrewsbury Town sing ABBA #singyourdialect pic.twitter.com/e8ACXYH6qT- J (@thfcjxmie) November 23, 2021
The event was set up by Twitter user @jacobbmc2, from Manchester, who invited people to belt out a couple of verses of their favourite tunes for the masses.
All in all, it was one of the greatest nights of many people's lives.
One listener wrote: "This night will go down in twitter history... KSI, Obama, and Aaron Ramsdale in the same chat room, there is no way this is real."
Echoing the love, another commented: "#SingYourDialects This country is unrivalled."
A third wrote: "I've just heard a Shrewsbury Town FC admin sing on a show hosted by a random donny named Jacob from his bedroom in Manchester and Barack Obama, Zinedine Zidane, Declan Rice and Vikkstar123 were some of the listeners in there #singyourdialects."

While another added: "#SINGYOURDIALECTS has literally broken Twitter man, some guy from his bedroom in Manchester has got some of the most famous people on the planet to have a big karaoke session."
It was so successful that despite some technical issues, host Jacob has promised it will return this evening (23 November) and will be bigger and better than before.
Thanking people for tuning in, he wrote: "I am absolutely overwhelmed wtf, my twitter kept crashing and I couldn't accept anyone or do anything so I'll sort it tomorrow but 7PM tomorrow we are back and better then ever and we might have some special guests as judges !!! Keep tuned in #singyourdialect."

Incredible stuff, Jacob. Absolutely stellar.
