“Dancing with the Stars” is a popular show and one that is filled with tension and competition. Alfonso Ribeiro has officially confirmed that he plans to do “The Carlton” on the show this week. He’ll be dancing to the song, “It’s Not Unusual” when it does it, so it should be interesting.
The dance was made famous when he was on the TV show, “The Fresh Prince.” Unfortunately for Ribeiro, his career is still stuck in the 1990s. So, while the rest of us may love it, it may actually make him feel pretty bad.
Don’t you feel sorry for the guy? You once worked with Will Smith every day, and he went on to become one of the biggest stars in the world. He started off as a big shot in a Michael Jackson commercial in the 1980s, had a great role on the show, “Silver Spoons,” took off on “The Fresh Prince,” and then his career died a slow death. Carlton, I mean Alfonso, deserves better than that, doesn’t he?
But the dance is what helps people to remember him, so maybe this will jumpstart his career all over again. We wish him the best.
Following the announcement, Ribeiro assured HuffPost that the dance he made famous as Carlton Banks on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” is definitely going to be on the show this Monday.
“It is actually happening. We are doing it this week. My feeling was, you know, I’ve continuously gotten asked, ‘When am I doing it? When am I doing it? When am I doing it? When am I doing it?’ Literally, every interview I get that question. This will be great because I’ll no longer get to be asked that question in the interview. [Laughs] They’ll have to come up with something different. Yeah, so getting it out of the way, we felt like this would be the right time to do it,” said Ribeiro.
