Before he was killing aliens or a master con man on the big screen, Will Smith was The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. 21 years ago this week he starred in an episode called “Six Degrees of Graduation.”

The premise? Smith needs to graduate a music course and his teacher agrees to give him a passing grade under one condition: he perform alongside a class of 12-year-olds. Despite the humiliation, Smith agrees and finds himself on stage in a sunflower green leotard and tutu in front of his family and closest friends.

Smith decides to spice up the classic tune of “You Are My Sunshine” with his own flavor. The results? Music magic.
