The meteoric success of 2CELLOS started when former cello rivals Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser decided to join forces. In January 2011, they uploaded a unique cello version of “Smooth Criminal” by Michael Jackson onto YouTube. Within just a few weeks, their video became a huge viral sensation, receiving over 5 million views. This led to a record deal with SONY MASTERWORKS and an invitation to join Elton John on his worldwide tour. Luka and Stjepan’s success extends way beyond YouTube and their fanbase continues to grow around the world. The duo has appeared on National TV shows like The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show (twice in 6 months!) and Stefan Raab’s TV total in Germany. On January 31st they appeared as the special musical guests on Fox’s hit TV series GLEE where they performed “Smooth Criminal” in the Michael Jackson tribute episode. This was the first time that an instrumental duo had performed on the show in this coveted guest spot. The 2CELLOS’ arrangement of the song, which featured actors Grant Gustin and Naya Rivera, sold incredibly well debuting at #10 on the Billboard Digital Songs Chart and landing the 2CELLOS in the Top 200. Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser have played the cello since childhood. They completed their studies in 2011 – Luka graduated from the acclaimed Royal Academy of Music in London, and Stjepan at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
