This season of Dancing with the Stars has been quite a journey for Alfonso Ribeiro and his partner Witney Carson. While he may be Jimmy Kimmel’s pick to win the coveted Mirrorball Trophy, he has surprised and delighted the audience and the judges each and every week, performing some of the highest scoring routines of the season. While he came into the season known for “The Carlton”—the signature dance of his character from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air—there’s no doubt that he’s got much more than one trademark move. Here are some of the highlights from Alfonso’s journey.
Alfonso and Witney got things off to a great start, setting the high score for the night on the Dancing with the Stars Fall 2014 season premiere with this Jive.
It may have taken a few weeks, but Alfonso finally showed off The Carlton in this unforgettable Jazz routine.
Alfonso and Witney topped the leaderboard in Week 6: Latin Party Night with this “Booty-ful” Samba!
It may take two to Tango, but a third person can make one heck of a Paso Doble when troupe dancer Lindsay Arnold joined up for a trio dance and a perfect score on Week 9: America's Choice Night!
Alfonso has been dancing with a pretty serious back injury, but even with some serious pain, he and Witney created a beautiful Contemporary routine in the Dancing with the Stars Fall 2014 Semi-Finals.
