Will Smith took to Facebook on Monday to ask fans to vote for his former “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” co-star Alfonso Ribeiro before the season finale of “Dancing With the Stars.” Smith wrote, “If y’all show Alfonso Ribeiro & Witney Carson enough love, they can WIN the Dancing with the Stars final tomorrow. So vote TONIGHT.”

Earlier in the season, Ribeiro honored Smith by performing a routine to the latter’s hit song “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It.” The actor, who has been considered a frontrunner throughout the competition, also paid tribute to his “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” character by doing his infamous “Carleton” dance. As Gossip Cop previously reported, Ribeiro has been fighting one painful injury after another. The actor first injured his groin while doing “The Carleton,” and he later ended up hurting his back. While it was initially uncertain whether or not Ribeiro would be able to continue with the show, the star danced through the pain on last week’s episode and received a nearly perfect score.

For the two-part season finale starting on Monday, Ribeiro will be competing against Sadie Robertson, Bethany Mota and Janel Parrish, with one of the four remaining dancers being sent home at the end of the night. The final three contestants will then hit the dance floor again on Tuesday in hopes of winning the show’s coveted Mirror Ball Trophy. Who do you think should win season 19 of “Dancing With the Stars?”
