Will Smith’s cameo at Coachella was surely a treat for the audience. 

During his Coachella set on Sunday night, Columbian singer J Balvin surprised the gathering by introducing 4 time Grammy winner Will Smith on the stage, who donned his Agent J costume from the 1997 hit film Men in Black and performed his rendition of the title track of the film. Smith joined Balvin on stage amidst the later’s extra terrestrial-themed performance, with UFOs and alien heads on stage.

Balvin introduced the 55-year-old actor on stage and Smith took the Coachella stage at Indio, California, evoking waves of nostalgia for the audiences. “Coachella,” he yelled as he processed to begin his rap performance, aided by background dancers all wearing alien gear. As his performance came to an end, Balvin was dragged off the stage by the dancers, and Smith pulled out the Neuralyzer- a device used in his hit film MIB, to wipe out the memory of the audience. Balvin returned to the stage soon after, continuing his set with a performance of his hit song In Da Ghetto, with his dancers, as per Variety.
