Alicia Keys – ‘The Cosby Show’ 

Superstar singer Alicia Keys appeared in an episode of the hit television sitcom, The Cosby Show in 1985.  At 4 years old, Keys played the part of one of Rudy’s friends at a sleepover party.

In a 2009 interview, the artist mentioned the episode and recalled “riding rodeo” on the knee of actor Bill Cosby’s character, Heathcliff Huxtable.

“He always tried to knock us off of his knee with the bucking horse thing. Of course, my favorite part was winning the game, because I was the winner,” she said.
