This is too tall. Here he is with 5'7.5" Darren Criss in what has to be nearly identical footwear and even ground.
He's like 5'9.5" at the most.

He seems little bit taller than 5ft 10 guys and girls I do know....
Zack. said on 30/May/19
5'10.5 is more legit. He always looks a bit taller than 5'10.

@billionaireslayer: I’m from VA too. Northern VA though
billionaireslayer said on 24/Mar/19
I know for a fact he is not over 5'9 maybe a strong 5'9, I met this guy in a friends church in VA right before he got famous for Raise you up, early 2000's stood right next to him at a bbq, I also met jason mraz, he is from mechanicsville VA, who is weak 5'7

Strong 5'9, I met this guy in the early 2000's at a church in VA.

He claimed 5'11 yet you give him 5'10 lmfao then whats the point of listing the reference
To document their claim, so anybody is free to believe it, or not.

Josh Groban seemed exactly the same height as Ben Platt who admits to being 5'9 1/4" tall.

taller than "5ft10" michael buble
berta said on 11/Oct/16
was on swedish show couple years ago and the guy who leads the show is said to be 178 but i think he is shorter. They looked the same height. i think he i s177

This is a photo of him next to Kat Dennings, who is 5'3". Both of them wearing sneakers (and highly unlikely to be wearing lifts). She appears to be very slightly downhill from him, but that is WAY more than a 6" height difference. There is no way he is only 5'9, as some have claimed. 5'11 is at least close. Click Here

Stood right next to him last week before Cardiff concert on 17th of May. I'm 5ft 4 and a half and had 2 and a half inch heeled boots on. He was wearing not thick soled shoes. In the pic taken, the top of my head doesn't quite reach the level of his eyes. Under 5ft 10 ? No way.
said on 25/Jan/16
With 5'8.75" (ish) Nick Kroll:
With 5'11"(ish) Jimmy Kimmel:
He's never been even a full 5'10" let alone 5'11". He often wears boots, but that's about the only way he gets up to 5'11".
Ryann said on 22/Jan/16
I was googling "kat dennings boob job" lol. Came across her height which is 5'3". I don't think josh groban is 5'11 bcoz my bf is 5'11 and I'm 5'3 also. Google them and see the pics with them together, u'll kno
joey1 said on 16/Jul/15
He is 5'9 as this website lists dennings as 5'3 and here is are pics with him next to her and she is wearing 2 inch heels.
Genny said on 20/Apr/15
Just took a screenshot of The One Show. Josh Groban, Alex Jones and Matt Baker, all standing straight. No way, is he only 5ft 9 or even less. No photographic evidence for that, is there. There's mass s of it, for 5ft 11.
Genny said on 20/Apr/15
He was on The One Show today and by this site's estimate of Alex Jones' height and Matt Baker's, Josh Groban is obviously, taller than Matt Baker and 2/3 inches taller than Alex in 3 inch heels. He's 5ft 11 - without, heels.
pablo77bar said on 5/Apr/15
Next to Armie Hammer this guy looks 1.60 MAX
Genny said on 20/Nov/13
Charlotte Church is 5ft 4 and a half by the way, as stated on this site. I'm Welsh and have met her.
Genny said on 20/Nov/13
He's never said that he's more than 5ft 11. If you look at photos of him with other stars whose height you know- 5ft 11 is likely to be correct. I'm the same height as Charlotte Church. She's wearing heels, in youtube video of, 'The Prayer'. No way, is he only 5ft 9 ie only 3 inches taller than her when she's in heels, even allowing for his, shoes.
Miverita said on 3/Jul/13
He's said in numerous interviews that hes 6'1/2",
dingleberry said on 17/May/13
stood next to him at concert..................maybe 5ft 9 inches....in heels
Will said on 29/Apr/13
I stood next to him at Obama's first inauguration and he is NOT 5'11". He would be lucky to even be 5'9". Heck of a voice though!
Julie said on 15/Oct/12
He walked right in front of me at his Cleveland concert, I am 5'11 and he was shorter than me, I'd put him at 5'9 and boy was he CUTE!
SIlent d said on 24/Jan/12
I think he's more 179cm in crazy stupid love.
said on 4/Jan/12
Ooops. Sorry for the typo. I meant strong 5'11" to weak 6', provided he didn't wear lifts in the pics taken with Jones(I posted a sample below). How about an upgrade, Rob?
[Editor Rob: he does claim 5ft 11, but maybe 178 is nearer than 177.]
Tate said on 4/Jan/12
Groban should be taller than 5'9". You might want to check out his other pics with January Jones who's listed here as 5'6". He's at least one or two inch taller than her even in pics where she's wearing heels. I'm guessing he's a strong 5'10" to weak 5'11".
Anton said on 9/Dec/11
He was a guest host on Live with Kelly,and Charlize Theron was a guest.She was taller than him,although I think she was wearing heels.Either way,heels or not, there's no way he's over 6'0. I think 5'9 sounds about right.
MsKitty said on 9/Dec/11
Watching him on the Today show right now...same height as Charlize Theron. This seems about right...and yes, he is adorable. :)
Allison said on 29/Aug/11
I saw him in concert...he looks shorter in real life. I thought he would be about 6'2 but he looks like hes 5'9....still the cutest thing ever though!
Marius E said on 18/Aug/11
I just saw him at Staples Center and he walked right by me several times; I'm 5'9" and he was just about my height, or shorter! I was pretty shocked how short he was, although he doesn't look short on stage.
Sara said on 30/Jul/11
I went his concert in Chicago and one of the questions the fans asked him about his height. He said he is 5'11
sherry said on 16/Jul/11
I saw him last night and got close enough to shake his hand. I am 5'4" and he wasn't much taller then me. I was surprised how short he is
Francesco said on 5/Jul/11
5'9"? Are you sure? I've seen him a year ago and I think he is much taller. 6'2" or something like that... Weird.
Mel said on 23/Mar/11
5' 9''!? What?! No... He looks quite tall...I can't picture him being about my height. He has to be at least 6 ft.
said on 23/May/09
I certainly is 5'9. In this picture w/ Andrea Bocelli he is listed her at 6'1 if Josh were taller than 5'9 than the height gap wouldn't appear to be so great.Click Here
Shan said on 3/May/09
Yea, my dad's 5'10 and when I met Josh, he was about the same height as my dad.
Anon said on 19/Apr/09
Josh has really bad posture, surely that must affect how he looks in all his photos?
christian said on 11/Feb/09
kristen said on 30/Oct/08
before i saw him in person, i thought he looked a solid 6'2". he's really just a little guy. guess it never would have worked out between us.
glenn said on 27/Oct/08
5-10 tops it is.giving me the illusion of smaller.
Anonymous said on 27/Oct/08
Josh looks taller on TV than he is in person. I've met him a couple of times and I'd say he's 5'10" tops. My husband and brothers are all 6'0 and over and Josh is not nearly as tall as any of them. He also has a very small frame.
me said on 26/Oct/08
uhhhhm he looks exactly 2 inchs smaller than 6'0" tom hanks, and if he wears high heels all the time as people said he does, then 1.77 would be good for him.
Anonymous said on 22/Jul/08
Anyone out there who can now really tell how tall Josh Groban is? I'm really interested in in...But please do not forget: He normally wears quite high shoes in concert... ;))
Thanks a lot!!
Sid said on 14/May/08
Glenn, was with him last night and am suprised your estimations are just like mine, i thought 5-9, then studied more and 5-10, no more than 179, MARTI PELLOW (WET WET WET), weak 5-11, was 1cm taller.
glenn said on 24/Mar/08
looks 5-10 in those pics with hanks.close to what i pegged him at originally.see what i mean?
glenn said on 23/Mar/08
always seemed 5-9ish to me.but all these 5-11 claims had me wondering if i was wrong.cause bad posture can fool a man.
said on 23/Mar/08
He can't be near 5'11".
With 6'0" Tom Hanks:Click HereClick Here
Really, not the best of pictures, but picture after picture with stars of known height show him to be no taller than listed.
Ashley said on 21/Mar/08
I saw Josh in person and he was just a couple inches taller than me and I'm 5'9" so I would say he is about 5'11". Georgeous guy by the way, really funny.
glenn said on 29/Feb/08
5-11 it is then.5-9ish with bad posture.
said on 28/Feb/08
yea i really think he is taller than this height
rob people are telling the truth... he might be 5'11..
him singing with 5'11 lee meadClick Here
said on 15/Feb/08
I think he might be closer 5'11" becuase here is pics of him with Dion Click Here
(standing together) and this one where she is running away :%. Click Here
She is posted at 5'7"...her heels look about 3 1/2" are so...( I could be wrong I'm just guessing) Rob what do think?...
said on 15/Oct/07
Thought I might as well add Youtube clip to show. Click Here
See at approx 2.38, 2.53 and at end.
Annaconda said on 4/Oct/07
Josh Groban sang with Lee Mead a while back, when side by side and easy to compare. They looked exactly the same height. Lee Mead is 5' 11" according to resume. Interesting shot of feet, however, revealed Josh clearly wearing lifts! And they would have to be fairly big to be that noticeable. I don't know how deceptive they are, but they look about 2 inches.
Editor Rob said on 13/Sep/07
Claimed on a radio show in 2006 "5ft 11, 160lbs"
glenn said on 29/Apr/07
i have no idea where it is.i have 2.one is a bad photo,good for height.one is a good photo,bad for judgeing height.
MD said on 28/Apr/07
Glenn, do you have the photo ready, yet?
Polywog said on 1/Apr/07
I attended the Josh Groban concert last night [Saturday] at LA's Staples Center..... He sang a song walking thru the audience..... I was less than
12-feet away from him..... I would estimate 5'8"..... But he sings like

No Way.5-10.photo Coming.
where's the foto?
Glenn said on 14/Oct/06
In the street he looks 5-9.strecthed out,5-9.75 or so.
MD said on 13/Oct/06
Glenn, I was thinking the same thing. He looks just shy of 5'10" to me.
Glenn said on 16/Mar/06
5-10 tops.can look 5-9.
Bridget said on 16/Mar/06
I have seen Josh 3 times in concert and met/hugged him. He really is about 5'10-5'11 range. No way does he hit 6'0. I am 5'8 myself,so he is definitely not 6'0. I would stick him at 5'10.
Glenn said on 11/Mar/06

Here he is with William Shatner and Joshua Bell (looking considerably shorter), but we still don't know Joshua Bell's height beyound what IMDb gives him, and they are often wrong. What we do know is Shatner is 5'8" tops, which calls into question even this 5'11.5" listing:

ron said on 28/Feb/06
i wouldnt say that hes the same height as matthew perry.
M.Jorgensen said on 25/Dec/05
I just saw a video where Josh stands next to Joshua Bell, given at 6 feet tall on imdb. Well, Josh did appear at least an inch shorter. I didn't get to see their footwear, but Josh was wearing 1/1.5-inch shoes throughout the video, so assuming J.Bell was wearing the same kind of shoes, Josh can't be more than 5'11.
grobaniac said on 18/Nov/05
No way josh is anything less than six feet tall.If you see the video of the song he did in concert alongside 6ft nick carter, u can clearly see that he's taller even with the slouch.I'd say 184 definately,no celebrity gets listed the same height everywhere unless its true.(also u can see that he is Enrique iglesias's height with enrique slouching.)
funnygirl said on 7/Jun/05
Josh is 6'0". However, he has a habit of slouching (which he admits to) so that makes him look like he is only 5'11". Yes, I have met him.....
J. said on 25/Apr/05
I find this listing to be a rather intresting one. I don't think I could even tell you the name of a Josh Groban song yet I always had the presumption that he was the 6'0"- 6'0.5" he was listed as since he's pretty lanky. In almost all of his press, he is described as being tall. Hmmm ....
(Looking at him next to Beyonce on the Oscar stage, he does look a solid 6 feet)
[Editor Rob: you know maybe this guy's height disparity - at least from what I'm seeing - is that on several occasions he wears his 8-year old converse shoes that he's probably worn down to being 0.5 inch soles...that could be the reason???]
Smoke said on 25/Apr/05
Wow this looks a little bit on the stingy side. I've never met Josh, but to me he has always looked this listing, has anyone out there met him who can confirm how tall he truely is? This guy is a curious one!
[Editor Rob: yeah, maybe I'm being a bit stingy...but in many photos he really does look all of 5ft 11. I'll give him the 1/2 till I have another look... ;)]
