Help Nick at Nite program The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air 15th Anniversary All Nite Celebrity Jam! Airing September 10 from 10:30 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., the Fresh Prince marathon will showcase fan-selected episodes featuring the show's impressive list of celebrity guest stars. Oprah Winfrey, Queen Latifah, Jay Leno, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Chris Rock, and plenty of other high-profile names dropped by the Banks mansion during the series' six hilarious seasons, and now is your chance to visit Nick at Nite and choose your very favorite Fresh Prince celebrity moment.

After squandering the fortune he'd earned from his teenage rap career, an 18-year-old Will Smith was broke and in debt to the IRS. Luck hadn't given up on him yet, however, and he soon found himself starring in a series based on the early life of Warner Bros. executive Benny Medina. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was an instant hit, and in addition to paying Smith's bills, it propelled him to a new level of fame.

One of the most well-loved television shows of the 1990s, The Fresh Prince told the story of a poor kid from Philadelphia who is sent to live with his wealthy aunt and uncle in Bel-Air, California. The young fish out of water wreaked a bit of havoc on the straight-laced Phillip Banks and his pampered brood, but ultimately won their affection by adding a much-needed dose of laughter to their home.

Voting began on August 16 and won't close until 10:29 p.m. on September 10--that's just one minute before the first celebrity episode airs! The number-one pick will air at the stroke of midnight, and Will Smith will team up with Dick Clark to host a half-hour introduction segment featuring cast interviews and uproarious outtakes. Don't forget to tune in for one Fresh party!
