Cello’s Performing Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” On Glee Was Amazing

Posted: February 2, 2012 in Television

I’ll admit it, I’m a Glee watcher.  Yep, I’ll park my ass on my couch on Tuesday’s at 8pm EST to watch a bunch of grown people play teenagers in a glee club, while singing favorite songs of mine.  So what?  Wanna fight about it?  However, this third season of the hit FOX television musical has been incredibly weak both from a story standpoint and a musical one.

For whatever reason the show has seemingly written Jane Lynch’s character “Coach Sue Sylvester” out of a main role and into a recurring cameo.  They’ve also taken most of the witty humor and done away with it.  The first season blew everyone away, the second season streamlined the show, and now the third season is pretty much garbage – save two or three episodes.  So, as you can tell, it’s pretty rare these days when a scene from Glee makes your draw drop.

Take Tuesday night’s episode (aired January 31, 2012) titled “Michael” where the entire show revolved around songs from the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.  I’ve grown pretty tired of most of the voices on Glee (except Brittany and Santana’s) but the scene where Santana’s character and the villain for this season, Sebastian (played by Grant Gustin), get into a “duel” or sorts singing MJ’s “Smooth Criminal”.  The singing wasn’t what was fantastic about the scene it was the cello’s that played that song that were amazing.

Trust me, if you’re into instrumental renditions of one of the most iconic songs of all time, pay attention.

The two cellist performing are musicians Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser who comprise to form the group “2 Cellos”.  Originally started as a YouTube sensation they were quickly signed by the Sony Music Group.
