'Fresh Prince' reunion grooves across the pond

It wasn't quite a full house, but we'll settle for the mini-"Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" reunion the U.K.'s Graham Norton recently hosted on his show.

Will Smith, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro all appeared on the BBC One program Friday and indulged the audience in a '90s throwback performance.

Smith, 44, was on the show with his 14-year-old son, Jaden, to promote their new movie "After Earth." At the talk show host's request, the pair broke into a rap routine that led to the intro of Jazzy Jeff, who was both Smith's musical collaborator and a frequent guest on "Fresh Prince."

With his DJ backing him, Smith couldn't help but break out into the sitcom's theme song with an assist from his son (who wasn't even born until two years after the show ended in 1996).


But that wasn't all - Smith hinted that there was another surprise, and out walked Alfonso Ribeiro ready to hit his signature dance move, "The Carlton."

Norton, who'd been dancing along in the background with his other guests, "The Hangover III's" Bradley Cooper and Heather Graham, quickly found an opportunity to join in.

As the music switched from Tom Jones' "It's Not Unusual" to Sugarhill Gang's "Apache," Smith, his son, Ribeiro, and Norton "jumped on it" - just as Smith and Ribeiro's characters infamously once did on "The Fresh Prince."

"Just a little treat for you," a smiling Smith told Norton as the audience cheered.

    Eaten regularly, these foods will help you satisfy the recommendations of the U.S. government's 2005 Dietary Guideline, giving you nutrients that are typically missing from American diets. According to the Guidelines, Americans need to eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products.`;;^

    Sleepwalking most often occurs during the deeper sleep of stages 3 and 4. During these stages, it's more difficult to wake someone up, and when awakened, a person may feel groggy and disoriented for a few minutes.""..`

    It is thought skin tags grow where skin rubs against skin or clothing. This would explain why they tend to affect overweight people who have excess folds of skin and skin chafing..^:..

    With oily skin usually comes acne. So to help keep your face clear, be sure to give your skin a deep pore cleansing treatment with this skin wash from Glymed. It's formulated with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide and will go down deep into your pores to reduce acne-causing bacteria and wash away other impurities on the skin.:"^`

    With kind regards <
