When Alfonso Ribeiro (you know, Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel Air) busted out his famous Carlton Dance on ABC's Dancing With The Stars last night, he might as well have done a touchdown dance after that.

Ribeiro and his partner Witney Carson won Season 19's competition during the show's season finale on Tuesday night. This was a big comeback for the actor as he pulled his groin and hurt his back earlier in the season. His buddy, Will Smith, gave Ribeiro a boost when he asked his followers on Facebook to vote for him earlier this week, according to Uproxx .

"I cannot believe this,” Ribeiro said with tears in his eyes after his winning was announced. “I’ve wanted it forever…I don’t even know what to say."
