Jada Pinkett Smith and Will SmithWill Smith sang on stage for the first time in a decade at the Latin Grammy Awards.

The “Gettin’ Jiggy wit It” star showed off his rapping skills, performing with Colombian group Bomba Estéreo on their collaborative track “Fiesta.”

The actor-and-singer rapped the lyrics trying to ”find my Sofia Vergara” in both Spanish and English, and performed to the crowd at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith and eldest son Trey Smith, 23, in the audience.

The performance comes shortly after the 47-year-old star announced he’s planning a tour with DJ Jazzy Jeff and is also working on new music.

He previously said: ”[I want to] get out there and do it for real. I keep a stash. I have a couple new things.”

The Grammy-winning musician never got to tour his music last time round due to the success of his American sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, which he worked on from 1990.

Will – who is better known for his acting – has also been celebrated for his music and has had several hit songs, including the soundtrack to his sitcom show.
