Will Smith reunites Alfonso Ribeiro and DJ Jazzy Jeff for “Fresh Prince” throwback
The last time Will Smith was on the U.K. TV show “The Graham Norton Show” he was nice enough to perform his opening music from “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”. This time he took it a few steps farther and delighted the audience.
It was an announced reunion featuring former co-star Alfonso Ribeiro and former collaborator DJ Jazzy Jeff. Smith was on the show with his son Jaden Smith promoting their new film “After Earth” which premiers on May 31, 2013. “Last time I was here I did my ‘Fresh Prince’ rap, eight million YouTube hits was on that. This time I brought my DJ Jazzy Jeff.”
It was then Smith performed the song with his son and Jazzy Jeff and when it was over Smith stated, “You like that? Well hold up Graham my man I’m not through, one more little surprise just for you.” Then the audience exploded in cheers as Smith’s former onscreen cousin Carlton Banks, appeared onstage as they danced “The Carlton” to Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual”. Norton himself danced to “Apache (Jump On It)” by The Sugarhill Gang.
