British Boy Band 911 covered "A Night to Remember" as part of their 1996 album, The Journey. British singer Maria Lawson covered the track in 1996 and was used by the Gala Bingo Advert, after the producers of the advert thought that her version was better than the original. DJ Magic Mike's Groove On is a rap over this song and even features Shalamar lead singer Howard Hewett. Mase's Get Ready is also in the same style and raps over this song. J-pop singer Sowelu sang a version called "Get Ready Nite 2 Remember" which featured BIG-O. The song was played at Toni and Todd's wedding reception on the sitcom Girlfriends, with the main cast dancing together down a "Soul Train" line. In the UK this song has also been used for a TV advert featuring the Harvester restaurant chain. In Gibraltar, this song is used at Gala Bingo before every main session.

A rendition of the song was featured on the reality television competition series American Idol, during the April 2, 2003 episode. It was performed by the Top 8 finalists from Season 2: Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken, Kimberley Locke, Josh Gracin, Trenyce, Carmen Rasmusen, Kimberly Caldwell and Rickey Smith.
