18 years after Fresh Prince, Alfonso Ribeiro finally performs 'The Carlton' again

From the moment Dancing with the Stars announced that Alfonso Ribeiro would appear on its 19th season, Fresh Prince fans have been clamoring for one thing: The Carlton. The distinctive dance routine, which Ribeiro performed repeatedly on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, has become a meme unto itself — and last night, Ribeiro finally brought it back, to a perfect 40 out of 40 score, on Dancing with the Stars.

"I love the Carlton dance now," said Ribeiro. "I love how it makes people feel. I certainly don't do it a lot, but I love the fact that people have this nostalgic look at that dance."

Indulge in your own nostalgia by watching the video below. The whole routine is worth watching, but the key moment comes at 2:23, when Ribeiro gets into position and the crowd goes wild. --Scott Meslow
