Watch: Mayo Clinic doctors appear on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'

The orthopedic surgery residents became viral hits after their musical performance.

After going viral for their performance of Mike Yung's "Alright," two Mayo Clinic residents joined Ellen DeGeneres on her CBS show.

Orthopedic surgery residents Dr. Elvis Francois and Dr. William Robinson were welcomed onto Ellen's couch to talk about how they seek to heal with medicine and with music at the Rochester hospital.

The pair humbled Ellen by paying her some major compliments, mainly about how much their patients love her show.

They then recreated the video that made them famous, performing "Alright" before the studio audience in Burbank, California, with Robinson on piano and Francois on vocals.

"Beautiful voice, beautiful," Ellen said, before presenting them with some Ellen-branded white coats for when they're making their rounds.

The show goes out at 4 p.m. on Tuesday on WCCO.
