Forgive me if I’m late to the viral video party with this one, but apparently the Romanian classic musical group 2Cellos went viral a little while back with a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal,” and now they’re signed to a real label, and have a real album out. And that album has that cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” and the group performed that cover on Jay Leno’s show last night.
What does that all add up to? About the most random and weird late night musical performance I’ve ever seen. It’s pretty cool for its technical virtuousity, but still, it’s two goofy cellists rocking the shit out of cellos to a Michael Jackson song. This is real life. 2Cellos, a million dollars, feel me? Holler.
