Singing Mayo Clinic doctors will be on 'The Ellen Degeneres Show' this week

Their uplifting performance proved a viral hit.

Keep your eyes out for two familiar, Minnesota faces on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" this week.

Listings for the Tuesday episode of the wildly popular CBS talk show lists among its guests Dr. Elvis Francois and Dr. William Robinson.

You might remember them from this story last month, when they went viral after sharing a video of the orthopedic surgery residents performing a version of Mike Yung's "Alright" with Francois on vocals, and Robinson on piano.
