Fresh Prince cast reunite as Alfonso takes the trophy

Alfonso Riberio - or more famously known as Carlton from the hit TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel Air - took the coveted mirrorball last night in the American Dancing with the Stars.

From throwing it back to ‘The Carlton’ to producing his own tap solo he truly deserved the prize.

Although we are not embarrassed to say that seeing some old familiar faces at last night’s final made us ‘eek’ with joy.

The Fresh Prince's Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Joe Marcell (Geoffrey) and Tatyanna Ali (Ashley Banks) were all in attendance to witness Alfonso’s “dream come true”.

The stars even got in on the action and took part in different segments throughout the series and captioned their social media posts with ‘fam’ to show their continued closeness.

In January of this year fellow cast member James Avery aka Uncle Phil passed away suffereing from severe heart and liver disease. During this time the cast rallied together and support each other during the tough time.

Although the Fresh Prince himeself couldn’t make the DWTS final he supported Alfonso by urging fans to vote for the star.


Take a look at Alfonso’s final tip tapping performance here:

And just because it never gets old.
