2Cellos will make their debut on Fox' hit TV series Glee at 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT on FOX. They will perform their signature version of "Smooth Criminal" with Santana (Naya Rivera) and Sebastian (Grant Gustin) in the show's special tribute episode to the "King of Pop" Michael Jackson.
The performance will emulate their self-made music video of "Smooth Criminal" that went viral on YouTube, getting millions of views, and subsequently lead to a record deal with Sony and a slot on tour with Elton John. This is the first time that the show has featured an instrumental group as their guest artist. Congrats to 2Cellos on this big TV spot.
"It is such an honor to participate in one of TV's biggest shows!" says Luka Sulic, "And performing a song by our idol Michael Jackson makes it that much more special," adds Stjepan Hauser.
Their self-titled debut album was released this Summer and features Sulic & Hauser's unique spin on hits by Michael Jackson, Guns N' Roses, U2, Coldplay and Kings of Leon among others. They are currently on a worldwide tour with Sir Elton John.
