Fresh Prince Cast Reunites on Graham Norton Show
When actor Will Smith, who skyrocketed to stardom in the 1990s with his TV sitcom “Fresh Prince of Bel Air”, recently visited the Graham Norton Show, he had a nice surprise for the audience.
The Men In Black star reminisced about a previous appearance on the program, when he performed his famous rap theme tune to the hit U.S. sitcom.
He told Norton, “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.”
His appearance turned into a Fresh Prince cast reunion when he was joined on stage with Alfonso Ribiero and rapping partner DJ Jazzy Jeff. Smith and Jeff delighted the fans by performing the theme song from “Fresh Prince” and inviting audience members to join in, just prior to having their co-star Ribiero join them onstage to do their rendition of the Carlton dance.
Host Graham Norton then quickly joined the trio to perform the “Jump On It” dance from the comedy show that made everyone feel nostalgic for the 1990s.
The talk show host exclaimed, “That is so cool! What a treat that was.”
It has been almost 17 years since “Fresh Prince” premiered on the airwaves and made an overnight sensation of the then teenage Smith. Smith has since created an entertainment dynasty himself, with both his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, as well as his son and daughter all involved in some aspect of the entertainment industry. Actress Heather Graham, also a guest on Norton’s show, was so inspired by the reunion that she perfomed some dance movements of her own from her position on the guest couch.
