'Shake It Up' finale clip: Can Rocky jog amnesiac CeCe's memory? EXCLUSIVE

After three seasons, 75 episodes, and more choreography than you can shake your spirit fingers at, the cast of Shake It Up will hang up their dancing shoes for the last time this Sunday.

The show’s finale, titled “Remember Me,” finds the gang fighting a tricky new foe: amnesia, which claims CeCe (Bella Thorne) as a victim after a “fashion mishap.” Can Rocky (Zendaya Coleman) find a way to help her BFF regain her memory — perhaps by reminding her about all the great times they’ve shared over the past few years? Watch her try in the clip below, which is chock full of flashbacks to some of Shake‘s most memorable moments.

'Good Luck Charlie' grows up: Sneak peek at flash-forward episode

'Community' star Yvette Nicole Brown guest stars on 'Shake It Up': EXCLUSIVE

She’s been sweet as sugar on Community but on this Sunday’s Shake it Up, Yvette Nicole Brown seems just a little bit shady. Brown plays Madame Tiffany, psychic to Cece (Bella Thorne), whose best friend Rocky (Zendaya) tries to prove that the psychic is a fake by showing everyone that it’s all about the power of observation and suggestion, but then all of the kids at school begin to think Rocky is actually clairvoyant. And it looks like Madame Tiffany is playing along.

Check out the exclusive clip below.


It's a Freaky Freekend on the Disney Channel: Jaime Pressley on 'Phineas & Ferb' and more: Exclusive VIDEO

Get ready for a topsy turvy time on the Disney Channel this weekend (Friday, April 5 – Sunday, April 7), with body-swapping episodes of A.N.T. Farm, Jessie, Gravity Falls, Phineas & Ferb, Dog With A BlogShake It Up, and the newly renewed Austin & Ally.

Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro's reunion on 'Shake It Up'

We told you a few months ago about a behind-the-scenes Fresh Prince of Bel Air reunion of sorts on the set of Shake it Up but here’s a first look at Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro on screen together for the first time on the Disney show in the Feb. 24 episode (9pm ET/PT). In the episode, CeCe (Bella Thorne) and Rocky (Zendaya) help Miss Burke (Banks) win over her crush, Mr. Zigfeld (Ribeiro). This is a recurring character for Banks, and Ribeiro has directed a couple of episodes of the show.

Take a look below for a trip down memory lane at the two together 20 years ago, when Banks played Will Smith’s girlfriend.

In the episode, CeCe (Thorne) and Rocky (Zendaya) help Miss Burke (Tyra Banks) win over the heart of her crush, Mr. Zigfeld (Alfonso Ribeiro), while Logan, Ty and Deuce help Flynn build a soapbox car.

A 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air' moment on 'Shake it Up'

Eric McCandless/Disney Channel

So this happened last week when Alfonso Ribeiro and Tyra Banks were on the set of Disney’s Shake it Up to film guest starring turns for an upcoming episode that Ribeiro directed. But the reason it makes me smile is because it mostly makes me remember Tyra’s arc on Fresh Prince of Bel Air as Will’s love interest, which was (gulp) 19 years ago. See the photo below!
