Young Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, known as 2Cellos, achieved sensational success by breaking the boundaries between different genres of music and taking the cello to a new level. Their unique cello version of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" took the world by storm. Within only a week, this YouTube video became a huge viral sensation, leading to a record deal with Sony Masterworks and an invitation to join Elton John on his worldwide tour.
Since then, the duo has appeared on major TV shows such as The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show (multiple times),Lopez Tonight, and many others. This program showcases these classical superstars accompanied by the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra at an ecstatic "homecoming" show filmed at Croatia's Zagreb Arena in front of 15,000 enthusiastic fans.
