Alfonso Ribeiro doesn’t do the Carlton to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song

Even though Alfonso Ribeiro was known as The Tap Dance Kid before he moved to Hollywood, he is most known for his Carlton Dance from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

However, the host has sworn off doing it anymore.

So on Tuesday night, when he was reunited with Witney Carson, who was his pro-partner when he won Dancing with the Stars, they decided to do a dance to the theme song from Fresh Prince. And guess what? There was no Carlton involved.

Such a sacrilege. Even if their short routine was spectacular.

When you think of Ribeiro, which dance stage of his comes to your mind? Since we grew up in the same hometown, he will always be The Tap Dance Kid to me even though I have seen him do breakdancing before he danced with Michael Jackson.


Alfonso Ribeiro talks about yesterday’s shocking DWTS elimination

Yesterday was the semifinals of Dancing with the Stars. And we were expecting the five remaining contestants to go down to four at the end of the show. However, Alfonso Ribeiro revealed in the final moments of the episode that no one was going home and that Alyson Hannigan, Ariana Madix, Xochitl Gomez, Charity Lawson, and (my favorite) Jason Mraz will all be competing in the finals on Tuesday.

If you are a conspiracy theorist, then you would assume that they are doing this because Alyson Hannigan was not the one who was eliminated, and the show’s producers didn’t want to have the finale without the person who was.

You see, Hannigan was the only one who did not get a perfect score for at least one of her dances yesterday. She is also the weakest one of the five. So it would make sense that she would be the one that should have been sent home.

But our theory was wrong. Or at least that is what Ribeiro said on The Talk today. “I felt really bad for Xochitl [Gomez] and Ariana Madix because I knew this was happening for a full week.” He added, “We’re taking over all of primetime for ABC next Tuesday night. So, it’s going to be a super-filled show, and so having five couples is fantastic.”

So, who does the former winner think will win? “They are all so deserving. And I think this season is slightly different than a lot of seasons.” Then he explained in the past, “You’ve got people, and it’s like that’s your winner. Everyone else is playing to see where they finish. Right now, truly, I believe, for many different reasons, any one of them can win. Right, for different reasons. And so, it is really hard when you are seeing them, and you are like, well, who’s got this? Well, they all deserve the opportunity to be there.”

So why should we tune in because yesterday feels like a wash? Ribeiro said that this week’s votes and scores will be calculated with next week’s totals.

And at this point, Gomez is in first place, and Hannigan is in last, with just nine points separating them.

Who do you think will bring home the Len Goodman Mirrorball Trophy? Tell me in the comments.


What did Alfonso Ribeiro say Will Smith can’t do?

We know Will Smith can slap someone older and smaller than him. But there is something he can’t do, and Alfonso Ribeiro told E! News’ Adrienne Bailon what it is

When the Dancing with the Star host was asked who he wanted to compete on the dancing competition, he said Will Smith. So Bailon wanted to know why he wants his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to do it. “How much fun would it be that I get to watch Will Smith be bad at something,” he said. “Will can’t dance. I have seen Will, and he can’t dance.”

And that is a massive statement coming from the guy who gave us The Carlton.

Although, I won’t criticize the DWTS champ’s dance moves. Not because he won, but my JHS alum originated the role in The Tap Dance Kid on Broadway and danced with Michael Jackson in a Pepsi commercial.

Back to Smith’s lack of dancing skills. Now it looks like we know why Jada Pinkett Smith sought another lover. Too soon?


Tom Bergeron reacts to Julianne Hough and Alfonso Ribeiro hosting DWTS

Three years ago, Dancing with the Stars screwed up huge time when they fired Tom Bergeron and replaced him with Tyra Banks. Even he was not a fan of their decision

Well, Banks and the dancing show finally parted ways, and now Alfonso Ribeiro, who co-hosted last season, and Julianne Hough will be hosting this upcoming season.

So how does Tom Bergeron feel about the new hosting duo? He said, “Glad the show’s in good hands. Their feet ain’t bad, either 🪩😉👍🏼” Since both of them won the Mirrorball trophy at least once, he’s not lying.

When Hough saw his post, she responded with, “These feet could never fill your shoes, but I’ll bring my own and hope I do you proud! I absolutely learned from the best! I completely and utterly adore you @tombergeron ❤️❤️❤️”

I feel the love. Something that has been missing on DWTS since Tyra Banks entered the ballroom. I am so happy it is back. Not enough to watch again, but still, it is nice!


Tyra Banks says ‘It’s time’ for her to leave Dancing with the Stars

They say bad things come in threes. And we can say that about the number of years that Tyra Banks hosted Dancing with the Stars. It is strike three for the former model because she told TMZ she is leaving hosting to focus on her business.

“I feel it’s really time for me to focus on my business and my entrepreneurship, and also producing more TV — but behind the scenes,” Banks said. “I think it’s time to graduate from the dance floor to the stock market floor.”

Instead, she will focus on her ice cream company and producing shows behind the scenes, which includes an upcoming business show.

Talking business. I believe that Disney opted not to renew her contract because I have never seen a host be as hated as she was for doing this job. She was such a ratings killer the once-popular show went from ABC to Disney+. So I am sure Disney+ will keep her co-host Alfonso Ribeiro on as a host and maybe add Cheryl Burke to the show to help him out.

Are you going to miss seeing Tyra’s face and awful fashion choices on our TVs? On that note, imagine how much DWTS is saving by not having to dress her every week.
