Will Smith's Fresh Prince reunion

The last time Will Smith swung by the BBC's Graham Norton Show, he led the studio audience in an impromptu performance of the titular theme song from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

For his encore, Smith senior had a little help.

When Norton asked Smith (who was on the show with his 14-year-old son Jaden on Friday) if the father-and-son duo ever perform music together, the pair grabbed a couple of microphones and once again resurrected the classic track.

"Last time I was here I did my Fresh Prince rap," chimed Smith. "Eight million YouTube hits was on that."

When he appeared on the show in May 2012, Smith, accompanied by Take That's Gary Barlow, led the entire audience in a rendition of the theme song.

"I can see your face, you're like, 'What has he left?'" Smith added, at which point he introduced his original sidekick, DJ Jazzy Jeff, who hopped on the turntables.

Smith and his son then launched into a remixed rendition of the Fresh Prince track, as fellow episode guests Bradley Cooper and Heather Graham bopped along in the background.

"You liked that," said Smith. "Well hold up Graham my man, I'm not through, one more little surprise just for you."

The actor then introduced a very special guest - Fresh Prince co-star Alfonso Ribeiro (better known as Smith's onscreen cousin Carlton Banks in the classic sitcom) - who proceeded to bust out his alter ego's signature cheesy dance moves to a cover of Tom Jones's It's Not Unusual.

Norton later got in on the action, and joined the trio as they grooved to The Sugar Hill Gang's Apache (Jump On It).
