It's amazing that 32 voters think she is 5'7.5" when you consider the fact that she claimed to be 5'7"!

5ft7 1/2 is the maximum she could be, a big chance for 5ft7 1/4 too.

I just found her picture on the page of French producer David Guetta, who's around 5ft9.5, and not only did I think "What a knockout of a girl..." but I took in for the first time how very tall Kelly is! With her towering heels, she could make 6ft easily!
What a gorgeously toned figure she has as well, and I would have estimated at that instance that she could have been 5ft8+ - definitely model-girl material in more ways than just height alone.
Kelly was a one-time judge on Simon Cowell's 'X' Factor, but it was that picture just now with David that made the singer's tall height hit home!
I agree with the average vote, but I have decided to draw a compromise because Kelly's reed-slim figure DOES make her look taller.

Think Hudson is a bit taller still but Kelly gives impression of more 5'8
Wonder if she measured at 5'7.75 & just says 5'7 lol

@Rob, is it possible that Kelly is 5’9? If you look at the top of their heads Kelly is 3 inches taller than 5’8”5 Jaime King while Kelly’s wearing only 2 inches heels. Click Here
So 5’9 for Kelly? Or has Jaime shrinked?
Editor Rob: a solid enough 5ft 7 women, as she claimed...I'm not sure if she's like Ciara, a 5ft 7.5 who just goes with 5ft 7...
said on 18/Dec/17
@Rob how can it be possible
you have Jennifer Hudson 5'9 and Kelly Rowland 5'7. Could you explain the pictures together?
Editor Rob: Hudson can look about 5ft 8.5 with Kelly, that may well be nearer for Jennifer.

Recently posed with Rihanna and surprisingly was a little taller.

I believe she's five seven I'm around 5'8 and very slim myself an people always mark me as 5'9-10, with most people adding a couple inches to their height when talking about it not many people now what a true 5'9 is especially when a slender frame , which Kelly could be considered to have, can make you appear taller . She also tends to weak platformed shoes.

kiki said on 29/Sep/13
ive met kelly a numerous amount pf times from her destiny's child days to her solo career and seeing I was a kid just entering double digits I of course thought she was tall but now as a 21 year old and having just seen her in 2012 whilst she wore flat combat boots and myself in flat combat boots as well I can say that she either didnt know how tall she really was or she grew lol I'm 5'9 andwere about an inch or a bit less away from eye level so I'd say shes anywhere from 5'8" to 5'8" 1/2
Chaz said on 4/Jul/13
every inch of the 5'7'' is gorgeous
nona said on 11/Jun/13
What a smoking hot body. Perfectly proportioned with curves at the right places and very well toned arms and legs. If she is 5'7" as she claims she should weigh about 135 lbs
Hot Steppa said on 10/Jun/13
Heels or not Kelly is just plain gorgeous, what does it matter 5'7" or 5'6" she is the BOMB. Move over young ladies Kelly is number 1.
slopedog said on 1/Jun/13
Just beautiful either heels no heels...
Silent d said on 22/Jan/13
She was a little shorter than nelly in the dilemma video clip. She always looked tall but when she didn't tower rove by a lot, I knew she wasn't taller than 5 foot 7. I think she was wearing heels too. 5 foot 7.
Editor Rob said on 26/Sep/12
Finally seen a quote from her: "I'm 5'7. But give me a large heel and I'm real happy then"
Anne said on 22/Jan/12
I've seen here next to Gary Barlow (5 ft 7.5)
and she was on massive heels, she was only
a bit taller then him... seems to me like 5 ft 6
or a bit less...

Brandon said on 4/Nov/11
i still think she's around 5'7" and change, 5'8" max.
SAK said on 17/Oct/11
How tall is Tulisa?
I am guessing 5ft5.
She looks a few inches shorter then Kelly Rowland and G.Barlow.
littlesue said on 28/Sep/11
She wears those big ugly shoes with 6 inch heels on the X Factor which would give her about 4 inches in height which would make her around 5ft 11.
Robby D. said on 25/Sep/11
I am amazed she is only 5'7", she seemed to tower over the X Factor judges. She also looked taller than Olly Murs and he claims to be 5'9".
SAK said on 21/Aug/11
On X factor she looks quite tall. But the male judges are quite short, G.Barlow @ 5ft7.5, So I suspect she looks taller then she is.
sandra said on 30/Jun/11
i think she must be taller tan that.her legs are definetly longer than beyonces.she must be 2-3inch taller than bey-
Jay said on 21/Jun/11
Need and up-grade for her.
lala said on 13/Jan/09
She's 5'8, not 5'7.
G-$ said on 15/Oct/08
I think she looks about 5'7" because she wheres heels a lot. I would guess her weight to be around 120.
Big T said on 11/Sep/08
Kelly does not look taller than Nelly in the Dilemma video, that's nonsense. They have very different proportions which might give you that impression (and is also why people so often overestimate the height of slim women), but at best she looks the same height as him in heels while he wears chunky sneaks. That video is actually great proof of the 1.5 inch difference in height that this site gives them.
Also, Kelly looked between 1-2 inches shorter than Serena Williams when they hugged on Punk'd (Serena Punk'd Kelly).
Good work again Rob.
britt said on 28/May/08
yeah she looks the same height as him, i think sha's 5'8"
sweetchari said on 7/Apr/08
She looks more like 5'8" to me...unless she has heels on, I do not see where she is any shorter, very pretty lady
mule said on 13/Mar/08
look at beyonces profile pic on this website and you can clearly see that she is at least 1" shorter than glen so 5'7" is right barefoot.
glenn said on 30/Dec/07
i see her what seems weekly.she wears big heels.5-7 most likely.but maybe your right.
Brittany said on 29/Dec/07
Glenn how tall did kelly appear to you? did she have on heels? i think she is 5'8
Sha said on 3/Oct/07
she looks tall as Glenn unless she has on heels and her hair also.. people look at the very top of the head which is your hair to measure height but no ones hair is completley flat on their head unless its a very low cut or they're bald
Alexandra said on 27/Jun/07
I think she's 5'8...She looks like she is that tall!
Tiko said on 16/Mar/07
On some special on VH1 about celebrity bodies it called her a 5'9'' beauty. So I'm thinking she's about 5'9''. Now whethers that's with 3 inch heels on I don't know. But, I think it's true, when she was on the Tyra Banks Show she was just as tall as Tyra and she is 5'10".
Brad said on 15/Mar/07
She can sing circles around Ms. Knowles.
me said on 7/Mar/07
she looks a bit taller than glenn.i would give her a definite 5'8.what type of shoes do you wear when you meet celebrities?she is more than an inch taller than beyonce.if beyonce is 5'6
Editor Rob said on 7/Mar/07
71 pounds is a lot to lose, hope you are putting a few more back on.
I didn't see any message, nor know your new email sorry.
glenn said on 7/Mar/07
thanks larry.coming from you thats one of the best compliments i ever heard.your a hero to me.
larry said on 6/Mar/07
Hmmm... We're now living with my cousin in Dallas (to be near the UT Cancer Research center. So, today, my even MORE eccentric cousin set an e-mail account up for me. Ron, I tried to contact you directly, but received an ambigous message. I'm sure it's the WAY we created my new account!!!!!!!!!!
Only, NOW there's TWO scientists convuluting it.
To make a short story into a novel: I wish to see if you can "retrieve" my new
e-mail address? I'll try something else later.
ON TOPIC: During my several months of treatment my height varied by ~ an inch!
Lost 71 pounds in weight & have gained some back.
Back to reading;
Hi Glenn! You ARE the "money where your mouth is guy!
Derek said on 6/Mar/07
Good to hear from you Larry. When you left, I had just joined the site. We definitely feared the worst. Glad to hear you are still with us.
glenn said on 6/Mar/07
yeah larry, i feared the worse.how are you holdin up? good to hear from you.
Derek said on 5/Mar/07
She was the same height as Nelly in the "Dilemma" video. That would put her at 5'8".
larry said on 5/Mar/07
Hi Rob; This is Larry Stewart. The cancer & cancer treatment pretty much took me down. I couldn't even type. During my "down time" one of my less bright nephews critically infected my entire PC system. He DESTROYED it! Bless is liitle cerbrium!@ So, we had to get an entirely NEW system & NOTHING survived "Little Richy". Who says "ignorance is bless??? This is the FIRST day I am able to even handle this. Anyway, I'm "back online", & will set up a new email account for me tomorrow. WOW: You really redesined the site! To keep in the spirit of things I will point out thay MY height has varied during this treatment!!!!!!!!!!!! And, of course, I had my beloved wife document EVERY detail. Hello friends... -)
[Editor Rob: hey Larry, very good to hear from you! I'm certain others here are glad your still fighting the fight.]
J. said on 5/Mar/07
She's looks gorgeous in the above pic. Only 5'7"? She always struck me as taller. If you look at some of Destiny's Child's promo pics when they first got signed, she always stood a fair amount taller than her other three bandmates.
LongKenny said on 5/Mar/07
I thought something like 5'10
Height Detective said on 17/Oct/06
del Mar , in that pic with Nolte he looks the same height as Nolte just because he is near the camera , just simple as that.
Height Detective said on 27/Aug/06
Chris penn is listed on imdb at 5.10 right now.
Del Mar , in that photo with Nolte he look the same height coz he is closer to the camera , he isnt at the same level as Nolte , he is smaller.
Height Detective said on 23/Aug/06
On IMDB he is listed at 5.10 right now.
Del Mar , Chris Penn isnt as tall as Nick Nolte , in that photo you posted he is closer to the camera and not in the same level as nolte , so that makes him look taller.
said on 23/Aug/06
6 ft 4? Click Here
What are this guys fooling with?
del Mar said on 8/Mar/06
I always think this guy looks taller. He looked about two inches taller than 5'10" Rooker in Deceiver, and looks the same height as Nolte and Madsen this picture :http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0117107/fcstil_0016.jpg?path=pgallery&path_key=Nolte,%20Nick&seq=59
tgri said on 1/Feb/06
i wonder if they will give a height after the artopsy .this height seemed about right.
dmeyer said on 1/Feb/06
i met him he looked about 2 cm shorter than me 182 cm do the math
Mario said on 25/Jan/06
Chris was probably 6 ft or 5 ft 11.5. I can't see him shorter than that.
Malina said on 22/Jan/06
Michael Madsen in a RD is a tallest guy.He looks by inch taller than Penn,but
he is taller 2-3 inch.Also in a Sin City looks much shorter than Benicio Del Toro but they are same height.Madsen is strong 6'2''.
JoJo said on 21/Jan/06
He was an inch shorter than Michael Madsen in Reservoir Dogs.Madsen is 188cm,which make Penn 185cm.But I think is not that tall,he also look shorter by inch or two than Chris Tucker(185cm) in Rush Hour.What are you think,Rob?
mcfan said on 14/Sep/05
He was also an inch taller than Kevin Bacon in "Footloose."
McFan said on 22/Jul/05
In "At Close Range", he was a few inches taller than Sean. 5'11-6'0 would be right.
