Will Smith Graham Norton Show
The Graham Norton Show (which airs every Friday at 20:30 on BBC Entertainment in South Africa) is easily one of the most entertaining and raucous shows on TV, as comical host Graham Norton assembles a diverse line-up of guests to sit on his red couch and he subjects them to some irreverent subjects and games.

Will Smith may be grabbing headlines for all the wrong reasons after he slapped a male journalist who attempted to kiss him at the red carpet premiere of Men in Black 3 in Moscow, but before all that drama went down, Will was in London to appear on Graham's cheeky show.

On the most recent episode of the BBC chat show, Graham’s live studio audience were in for a rare treat when Will Smith, currently promoting his new movie Men in Black 3, broke out into perhaps his biggest, most recognisable hit: The catchy theme song from his 90s TV sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Will, 43, admitted that no matter where in the world he goes, he will always be recognised for his role on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, which ran from 1990-1996, despite a long and illustrious film career that spans 20 years.

Graham pointed out a known fact that practically everyone in the world knows the  lyrics to the catchy theme song by heart and prompted Will to perform it for the audience, with fellow guest, Take That singer and X Factor UK judge Gary Barlow playing the keyboards.

Without any hesitation, Will and Gary performed the song in its entirety. Needless to say, the whole audience joined it – and you will too!

Watch their amazing performance here:

* This full episode of The Graham Norton Show will air in South Africa on BBC Enertainment (DStv channel 120) of Friday 1 June at 20:30.
