Jimmy Fallon & The Roots Take 'The Tonight Show' To Los Angeles With 'The Fresh Host Of Tonight'


The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is seriously on a roll this week. After the special post-Super Bowl episode on Sunday night featuring an epic lip sync battle, Jimmy Fallon decided to extend his stay on the westside and take his show on the road to Los Angeles, where the show relocated from when Fallon started his stint. To commemorate this occasion, Jimmy had to do something special and the show kicked off with a spot-on recreation of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's opening sequence for "The Fresh Host of Tonight."

Dressed up like Will Smith in the iconic sitcom opener, Jimmy Fallon sat on a gold throne and rapped along to the theme song's revamped lyrics. The Roots and his sidekick Steve Higgins joined in on the shenanigans as well as actual Fresh Prince of Bel-Air stars Alphonso Ribeiro and DJ Jazzy Jeff. From the costuming to the sets, this updated take on a nostalgic favorite was quite authentic and very entertaining.
