The Jackson 5 auditioned for Motown founder Berry Gordy in 1968 with a filmed performance of "I Got the Feelin'", with the ten-year-old Michael Jackson closely mimicking Brown's vocal style and dance moves.
In 1986, the song was prominently featured in the third-season episode of The Cosby Show entitled "Golden Anniversary", with most of the cast performing a lip-synch routine led by a 16-year-old Malcolm-Jamal Warner.
A version of the song is featured in the musical Fela!.
