We officially have our first Weekend 2 moment as Jaden Smith’s dad — who you might know as Will Smith or the Fresh Prince — joined his son to close out Jaden’s set.
While much of Jaden’s set was pretty much a carbon copy of his Weekend 1 performance, he surprised everyone when his father, actor Will Smith, joined him on stage with about 10 minutes left in his show.
The father-son duo performed the young star’s song “Icon” to a roaring crowd.
Appropriately, the song has a chorus with the line “I am just an icon living.” That line perfectly defines Will Smith, one of the most famous actor/musician hybrids of all time. Will was wearing a black t-shirt that said “Erys is Coming” on it, a reference to Jaden’s upcoming album called “Erys.”
“This is my first time ever on a Coachella stage and I love y’all,” Will Smith said.

When the song ended, Jaden said, “Thank you, Coachella!” and he and his dad walked off stage together.
Last week, Jaden and sister, Willow, walked off stage together. Willow again opened the Weekend 2 show with an aerial high-wire act, and backed her brother throughout the set.
Alas, they did not team up to sing any of dad’s songs. A hot day like Friday would have been a perfect setting for them to sing “Summertime” together. Ironically, Jaden also has a song called “Summertime,” which he sang with Willow.

In possibly the least subtle bit of brand placement at Coachella, for the second week in a row Jaden Smith performed while a Tesla Model X car hovered in the air. He then lowered it, stood on it, was raised up into the air and sang a song while elevated. Internet lore says there are only 208 of them out in the world, so it’s a pretty baller item for the 17-year-old to own. And he does own it (or one just like it) and has been seen driving it around Los Angeles. His is gun metal grey, while the one hovering in the Sahara Tent rafters was white.
