Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon Perform “Evolution of Hip Hop Dancing” On The Tonight Show

Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon

Popular late night comedian Jimmy Fallon is the new host of The Tonight Show. Fallon took over the reigns of The Tonight Show following NBC’s announcement last Spring that Leno would leave The Tonight Show. Fallon has a healthy respect for Hip Hop, as evidenced by his hilarious “Evolution of Hip Hop Dance” skit with Will Smith on Monday.

Smith and Fallon performed many of the familiar dance moves that have (thankfully) come and gone, such as my personal favorite “The Carlton Dance,” named after Carlton, from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

After famously reuniting the casts of Saved by the Bell and Full House on Late Night, the 39-year-old comedian gave a nod The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air during his first-ever time hosting The Tonight Show Monday. Of course, he couldn’t have done it without a little help from his first guest, Will Smith.

Dressed in overalls and printed tees, the duo performed the “Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing,” showing off moves ranging from the “Cabbage Patch” and the “Running Man” to the “Robot” and the “Pop and Lock.” Other signatures included “Crank That (Soulja Boy),” “Kid ‘N Play,” “MC Hammer” and “The Carlton.” Unfortunately, Smith’s Fresh Prince of Bel-Air costar Alfonso Ribeiro didn’t make a cameo.

    I like J Fallon, but he was already good on HIS show. I still say Leno messed up the rotation by not leaving when he said he would. then Conan ended up leaving the network and giving up his chance to replace Leno. Did Fallon take The Roots :love: with him to the new gig?

    Gigi, it goes back and forth for me. I appreciate the wit of both. Jon Stewart has the gift of breaking down and tearing political issues to shreds all while making you laugh.
