Not sure what guess to give now because in a few pics he appears 6’+. On average, he looks to be a weak 6’.
DarkPower729 said on 28/Apr/19
Max he could pull off is 5’11”. I can’t believe he’d claim 6’1”. Claiming almost 6’0” is more honest and even then he barely hits 5’11”.
Mimi said on 9/Feb/19
If he's claiming "Six-one" now that means Mariah can claim she's almost "Five-ten"
said on 9/Feb/19Click Here
Now he's making an unsure claim of "Six-One".
Any hesitation and you know someone is trying to think 'should I lie about this' or not👺...😂
A quick and confident reply is what's needed when you are asked how tall you are.

Realise those bald head celebrities height got more accurate listing going here. Hair always deceived fraction or little more over estimated.

Looks the same or smaller than asap rocky in this vid Click Here
Adam2018 said on 19/Mar/18
Im surprised my this listing as he looks 180cm plus on Wild n Out.
sulu2018 said on 21/Feb/18
He's a little over 6 inches apart from Howard Stern
Greg said on 3/Jan/18
@Chase Michael B Jordan clearly has a footwear advantage over him, he has boots Nick seems to be wearing thinner dress shoes.
said on 20/Nov/17Click Here
Him with Michael B Jordan who is the same height on here. Shows that this is the most he can be. Probably 5'10 on the dot however considering that's a whole inch difference there and there isn't much footwear difference.

It's funny how Google adds 1 inch to almost everyone Cannon ain't taller than 180cm. I give him 180cm.
said on 24/Apr/17
You should watch this video. He is the same height as Mariah Carey and she is wearing TOWERS instead of high hells. There is NO WAY Mariah is here as 170 and he is just 9cm taller than her.
S.J.H said on 8/Apr/17
When standing straight, howard stern look near 6'6 next to cannon.
ok said on 3/Mar/17
I'm similar (but at evening in walking stance on stadiometre) can show show good matching with tall chicks like Serena Williams at times
Realist said on 2/Feb/17
I guess I am 5'9.5 max if he's only 5'10.5.
RXH said on 11/Jan/17
Aaron Zamora They look about the same height in that video. Less than an inch difference.
john said on 25/Dec/16
i met him. im 5'11.5. Believe i have just under 2 inches on him
said on 12/Nov/16
Jimmy dwarfs Nick cannon and is the first time that I see Jimmy without his big dressy shoes. Nick is 5'10 at most. Click Here
MD said on 30/Aug/16
We've GOT to get a more accurate listing on him. This is a 5'10" guys, tops.
John said on 28/Aug/16
Clearly Nick isn't 5'11", as 6'4"-ish guys like Snoop Dogg, Waka Flocka and Machine Gun Kelly all had at least 6 inches on him on Wild 'N Out. He is no more than 178cm, believe me.
Agent Silent said on 19/Aug/16
I recently watched an episode of Wild N Out, Nick had 6'0" Fabolous on as a guest and Nick looked no more than 5'10"-5'10".5. It's time for a downgrade.
Aaron Zamora said on 3/Aug/16
It's time for a downgrade for Nick He's 5'10.
said on 23/May/16
With 5'9" (max) John Legend:
I've been arguing forever that this is too much.
said on 2/Dec/15
Cannon at 5ft 11? I was shocked when i found out his official height, the guy always looked OVER 6 FEET in my opinion, he has a really lanky build, long limbs etc...
and there's people saying this man's between 5ft 7 and 5ft 9! Unless he has an extremely small head...i dont know...maybe its just camera angles
Harry said on 20/Jul/15
@winner91 Post shows cannon shorter than 5'11 levine.

John said on 8/Apr/15
How can klum be 5-9 ?????? In her massive heels she is still an inch shorter than him.
oregon said on 6/Mar/15
look at his photos with Michael B. Jordan and Nelly! He is definitely 5'10" Rob!
Crypto139 said on 22/Jun/14
All I know is he looked around the same as my dad or probably shorter when me and my dad met him some years ago. Though back then I couldn't tell height as well as I can now. Also I don't know my dad's height exactly myself. He looks to be in the range of 5 feet 10 to 5 feet 11. So that is not much of a help I guess. Howie Mandel is shorter than my dad though.
Bernardo said on 15/Apr/14
lol he always looks like 6'0-6'1 to me.
MD said on 17/Feb/14
This sucks, I'm looking through the All-Star Weekend photos on Getty, and they don't have any photos of him with Burke or Paul. I've alwyas argued, though, that he's 5'10", tops. In fact, I had some photos on this page showing that before Rob accidentially deleted all of my comments during the fall.
D said on 16/Feb/14
No way he's over 5-10. I'm watching NBA All-Star Weekend and he looks 3 inches shorter than Trey Burke. I would guess 5-9.
brandonk said on 15/Feb/14
Was just on stage with Chris Paul at the All Star Game. CP3 was a solid two inches taller.
Ron said on 12/Dec/13
I still don't see how 5'11 is small. It's 2 inches above average...
Hes little said on 29/Jul/13
Was on a flight with him from LA to Newark. Im 6' he was at least 3" shorter and very thin. Even with hooded sweatshirt and sweatpants.
jtm said on 12/Jul/13
i don't understand how he could be 5'11 when he was 2 inches shorter than chris paul.
said on 11/Jul/13
rob don't you think is time for a downgrade?
[Editor Rob: not sure on a change yet]
ajcf1995 said on 9/Jul/13
He seemed tall on America's Got Talent. About the same height as Howie Mandel though so not that tall actually.
Penguinboy25 said on 10/Apr/13
Ya Chris Paul 5'11.75, Nick Cannon 5'9.75 to 5'10 max.
Triplescrew said on 22/Feb/13
This guy is a clear 5'9.5" Rob. Chris Paul had a good 2 inches on him and he's a strong 5'11".
D_Dave said on 18/Feb/13
CP3 is a weak 6'0 and Cannon was at least 2 inches shorter than him. He looked more like 7 inches shorter than the 6'4" Wade. There is no way Cannon is taller than 5'10.
// said on 17/Feb/13
shorter than chris paul at the all star game 2013...standing next to each other was no more than 2 inches shorter both with shoes...
Ryan said on 16/Feb/13
On NBA All-Star weekend, Nick Cannon was standing beside 6'0'' Chris Paul and Nick was at least 2 inches shorter than Chris.
allstar said on 16/Feb/13
Just watched him on TV talking to Chris Paul and D. Wade at the all star game, he is 2+ inches shorter than CP3 who is listed as 5'11.75" by the NBA
FTW said on 16/Feb/13
Just saw Cannon on the NBA All Star special standing next to 5'11 barefoot Chris Paul and 6' 3 barefoot D Wade. Cannon is 5'9 TOPS. Time for a downgrade. Cannon was wearing dress shoes which is at least as thick of a sole as basketball shoes.
observer said on 15/Jan/13
Yeah, but doesn't Cannon look taller in comparison to her than Faison? I think it's safe to say she is wearing the same footwear since it is the same event.
said on 13/Jan/13
So, Cannon and Donald Faison are the same height?! Rob, how tall (with possible heels) do you estimate the reporter to be? And what about Jason Kidd?
[Editor Rob: depends what she's wearing]
Frankie said on 10/Jan/13
Saw him at Universal Studios a few years back, I'm 5'9" and he looked tiny, almost petite, I would say 5'7" at best and probably only 130lbs.
Conti said on 25/Dec/12
I've actually met Nick Cannon 7 years ago in 2005 and he was at least 4 inches shorter than me.I'm 6'1 so I would say 5'9 when he was wearing shoes.
actor guy said on 30/Oct/12
Saw Nick.cannon yesterday stood right next to him and nelly. He's definitely 5'10.5-5'11 ...Nelly 5'08. The both look shorter, until you stand shoulder to shoulder.
Tim said on 26/Sep/12
I'd say 5'11 is right, I thought he was 6'0" but it makes sense now how short he was next to Howard Stern
Davey said on 5/Feb/12
Just saw Nick Cannon and Jimmy Fallon standing next to each other on the Superbowl pre-game show. He was standing straight as an arrow and was still at least 3-4 inches shorter than Jimmy who was slouched. Nick is maybe 5'8" or at a stretch 5'9".
said on 8/Dec/11Click Here
MC With FLAT shoes NO heel what so ever! She had to wear during the middle of her pregnancy! And nick, with shoes on.
Mariah is 5'8,, Nick is 5'11 or taller in shoes ofcourse!
MD said on 3/Dec/11
He is not anything under 5'10", but he's definitely not a full 5'11".
Angelo said on 2/Dec/11
Saw him at pachas night club djaying about a year ago, he is not tall at all. 5'9 max, possibly even shorter.
Titan said on 22/Nov/11
You have to keep in mind that not everyone stands up straight all the time. Some just slouch more than others.
Nick Cannon is no shorter than 6'0" because he's taller than Mariah and Mariah maxes out at around 6'0" in her highest of high heels so...
Dem Babies WILL be very tall people. I can see Moroccan being at least 6'2" and Monroe ranging somewhere around 5'9"...
Bobby said on 21/Nov/11
Mario Lopez is not 5'9". He's more like 5'7". That guy is short.
SpotOn said on 20/Aug/11
Hate to burst a lot of your bubbles, but Mariah is not even 5'9. I met her in person and I am 5'10 and had several inches on her, even with her heels on. So seeing Nick stand side by side with Nick with heels, I doubt he's a legitimate 5'11 or 6footer. Its probably the pants and the lifts that make him appear taller than he really is.
bob said on 9/Aug/11

If he's shorter than 5'10 1/2" P.Diddy, then he IS 5'10" Like I thought.
Sergio said on 15/Jun/11
He is 5,11..took a picture with him about 4 months ago..same height as me
Larry said on 22/May/11
Common, a full 5 11 barefoot for Cannon? Get real
said on 26/Feb/11
What do you think of this picture of Nick and 5'9" Mario Lopez?
With 5'9.5" Russell Simmons:
With 5'10.5" P. Diddy:
With 5'11"ish Jimmy Fallon:
I've been saying it for awhile, but this guy has always looked and been just 5'10". He certainly isn't a full 5'11".
[Editor Rob: there's a chance he could be 179cm, that mario one he looks a little further away, I'm sure it's making him shorter than he is.]
joewhite31 said on 12/Jan/11
She's either 5'5" or 5'6", her 5'9" claim doesn't mean you have to believe her. Nick is 5'10" flat, easily 5'11"-6' in his timbs.
Nick cannon fan. said on 16/Nov/10
If Mariah is reportedly 5'9 and wears 5 inch heels then she'd be 6'2 with them on. Nick Cannon has to at least be 6'2 or 6'3. If he's not that tall and he is 5'11 then Mariah Carey is not 5'9 she's either 5'5 or 5'6.
Yelmer said on 30/Oct/10
LOL - he is no shorter than 5'11" I don't know about his footwear but he is taller than Mariah in her platforms and in her platforms she is at least 6 feet tall, this is correct he could even he taller
orginal said on 11/Apr/09
ive seen this dude and it was lil far away but he aint anywhere close to 6 foot without his timbs
Anonymous said on 23/Nov/08
i just saw a picture with him, mariah carey, steffi graf and andre agassi. mariah was in heels and he was about as tall as she was which im guessing is about 5'9 with heels. steffi graf is 5'9 but was also wearing heels and in the picture he was shorter than her. andre agassi is listed at 5'11 and he and steffi were the same height in the picture. nick is about 5'9
Chuck said on 11/Nov/08
Well, this once and for all proves that Mariah Carey isn't 5'9" WITHOUT shoes. She's definitely shorter than he is, heels and all.
Tony said on 21/Aug/08
Saw serena williams on whylen out out on mtv inch taller than nick cannon
Viper said on 12/May/08
Beckford is 5-11 tops. Thats interesting how Cannon looked 2 inches shorter than him. I wonder If Cannon wears lifts? He does look shorter in a ton of photos.
leonari said on 11/May/08
at least 5'11 if not a tad taller-
AM said on 8/May/08
I think he is about 5ft 11 because next to his new wife Mariah carey, who is 5ft 7 and ALWAYS in heels, he looks about 2 inches taller.
someone said on 24/Apr/08
glenn is not standing straight so i think he's 5ft 10in
BERTA said on 8/Apr/08
look at the movie day of dead he locks like 184 in it
Edd said on 6/Mar/08
Ok, i just found out Beckford is 6'0, so i guess cannon is 5-10 or 5-11, 5-10 1/2 is more like it.
Anonymous said on 6/Mar/08
I saw him on some auto show on MTV2 where he stood next to Tyson Beckford who is 6-2. Nick Cannon only looked 1.5 or 2 inches shorter than Beckford. I would say Nick Cannon is 6'0, Unless Tyson Beckford is not 6-2.
Brooke said on 20/Oct/07
I am 5'11, I just took a picture with him yesterday, he is probably 6'0 or 6'1 on a good day
Bob said on 4/Aug/07
Steve-O is 5'10ish of course.
Bob said on 3/Aug/07
On Wild n Out, Steve O was barefoot and Nick had athletic shoes on and Nick looked 1-2 inches taller.
glenn said on 22/Mar/07
cannon has the dmx effect going.appears 5-9 and then extends to 5-11.
Viper said on 21/Mar/07
Its crazy. Hes looked 5-9 standing next to measured athletes with decent posture.
glenn said on 20/Mar/07
i just got big boi tonight.he was 5-6.
said on 19/Mar/07
Some more for reference (make sure to take into account the slouches):
With 5'8" Kanye West:
With Randy Jackson given a full 5'8.5", here
With 5'7" Big Boi:
With 5'9.25" Serena Williams (most likely in heels), and 5'7.75" Ludacris:
Anonymous said on 18/Mar/07
Wow, shocked about the pic of Glenn and Nick. I posted before about Tyra and Wild N' Out. Tyra was easily taller than him by an inch and she is 5'10 . Again she had on very flat sneakers and he had on running shoes. He must have lifts on with Glenn because next to Tyra, he couldn't be more than 5'9.
6'2.5'' JK said on 15/Mar/07
He looks like a solid 5'11'' with Glenn, maybe he is a shapeshifter
dmeyer said on 15/Mar/07
he towers over glenn
[Editor Rob: its true, he can go from as others say looking short to 5ft 11 with glenn.]
Viper said on 2/Mar/07
Hell, Cannon doesnt look that far off from 6-0 there.
Editor Rob said on 1/Mar/07
It might not make much sense, but its hard to argue unless there is a pavement advantage to the cannon's favour.
said on 26/Feb/07
An even better comparison are those closer to his height. They guy has got a pretty regular slouch, which I always take into account. I've seen him look pretty tall, but I've seen him looking around 5'10" even more often even taking into account the slouch.
With 5'7.5" DJ Clue, who's more likely even 5'7":
With Cuba Gooding, Jr. given 5'10", here:
Viper said on 26/Feb/07
It just doesnt make sense. How in the world does he look 5-9, with decent posture next to 6-4 Dwayne Wade?
MD said on 25/Feb/07
I agree with Viper. This is whacky!
Derek said on 25/Feb/07
If Cannon isn't wearing lifts, then he is 5'11" minimum, maybe even 5'11 1/2".
Viper said on 25/Feb/07
That is the tallest Ive ever seen Nick Cannon look.
glenn said on 22/Feb/07
at least 5-11.maybe a hair more.
Kora said on 21/Feb/07
I met Nick Cannon at a concert. I think he's a little taller than 5'11 because thats how tall I am. And he was a bit taller than me.
Glenn said on 13/Feb/07
Timbs.like I said many times,I have 5-11friends that look 5-9.Cannon is that type then.
Viper said on 12/Feb/07
Glenn, do you remember Cannon's footwear? This guy looks as short as 5-9 in many pics.
Glenn said on 10/Feb/07
No way is Cannon 5-10.I was with Cannon and Cuba.Cannon is 5-11.
said on 9/Feb/07
With Cuba Gooding, Jr. who's listed at 5'10", here (perhaps shorter):
1. Click Here
In this one, take into account that Nick has on some regular sneakers from other similar pictures showing his footwear. Unfortunately, they don't show Cuba's footwear. All this in account, 5'10" is the top of the scale, here.
Also, please take a look at the photos I posted of Nick with 5'8" Sean Paul and 5'8" Cedric the Entertainer.
said on 8/Feb/07
Also, with 5'9" Nick Lachey who I'd assume is in his normal bootwear, here, but I think it shows 5'10" is the very top of the scale for Nick, and generous:

Viper said on 3/Jan/07
I agree Anonymous. Kanye has always looked 5-7 to me and Cannon needs to be downgraded to 5-9.
ddu said on 2/Jan/07
wild n out again.. same height as 5'8 keenan thompson.... overstating this one boys
Anonymous said on 1/Jan/07
Just noticed MD put on here the pictures from the Wild N' Out I was talking about. Notice that Tyra's sneakers are lower and she has a greater difference in height over Sean Paul than Nick - meaning Nick is shorter than Tyra. I think it is a safe bet to at least downgrade him to 5'9. Kanye is more like 5'7".
Anonymous said on 31/Dec/06
5'9" max. On Wild N' Out, Tyra Banks (5'10) was taller than him maybe by an inch and he had on running sneakers(give like 1.5" of height) and she had on the flat more for style sneakers which definitely give less height than running sneakers.
ddu said on 28/Dec/06
on wild'n out hes same height as kanye west so 5'9 max
MD said on 27/Dec/06
And, Kanye's been actually reduced to 5'8" since my posting of these pictures. Nick is nothing over 5'10", nothing.
matthew said on 27/Dec/06
nick doesnt have much on Kanye west in a picture below! , 5'10 he is!!
MD said on 13/Sep/06
Hey, Editor Rob, you want to check this one out, again?
Anonymous said on 30/Aug/06
Yeah, I never believed that IMDb listing of 6' 0" for Nick, even before I learned of this site in June. I'm thinking he is 5' 10" at most.
MD said on 29/Aug/06
He is 6'0"...in massive Timberland boots WITH lifts! LOL!
Viper652 said on 28/Aug/06
I cant beleive Nick is billed at 6-0.

said on 25/Jun/06
5'10.5"? Near Damien Fahey he looks taller than that
).There are another photos with Damien as well. You can check them on(Click Here
).How can it be? Can somebody explain this? Rob? May be he's 5'11".[Editor Rob: I might just leave him at that mark and say he just doesn't have great posture...]
MD said on 19/Jun/06
It's just a little difficult to tell by that pic, but I doubt anyone would want to slouch around basketball players, "rapper slouch" or not, and that's an understatement.
Viper652 said on 19/Jun/06
Nick looks shorter then 5-10 next to Dwayne Wade.
[Editor Rob: using the 2 guys to the right heights and difference between them, you might calculat cannon in that picture can *look* 5ft 9 1/2-3/4, but whether he has "rapper slouch" is question...
MD said on 16/Jun/06
What more proof do you need?

Now, Young Jeezy is NO MORE than 5'8"

I just don't see where you're finding him 6'0"/5'11". Nick is an average height guy with a thin build. He's 5'10".

Anonymous said on 22/Apr/06
I've always thought Orlando Jones was a legit 6' but when he appeared on Carson Daly's Show, he looked a good 2 inches shorter.
[Editor Rob: I'm thinking closer to 5ft 11...maybe I'll add this guy at the magic 181cm mark!]
xaoxio said on 16/Apr/06
I'm confused now. I don't know what to say. Nick Cannon is a tough guy to pinpoint his exact height. I'll wait for your listing of Orlando Jones...
[Editor Rob: I'll sneak orlando in when nobodies looking ;-) yeah, he could be in a range 5ft 11-6ft, cannon that is...these guys with dodgy postures at times are harder to find pictures when they stand tall...but with Jones looks standing better, not seen that film]
xaoxio said on 16/Apr/06
and by the way have you seen Tyra Banks standing with Nick Cannon face to face?
said on 16/Apr/06
well Rob, I can't agree with that listing for Nick Cannon now, cause even if I'd like him to be shorter than 6'0" I just can't see it. Look again at this photo(Click Here
)- Orlando Jones is 6'0"(in my opinion) and Nick does look his height(even taking into account camera angle) IMHO. No lifts I guess from Nick Cannon. And yeah, I do think that the posture may be the main reason for him to look 5'10" in a lot of pictures.
P.s. You've told us(visitors of this excellent site) numerous times:"Take a posture into account" and I do. 6'0" listing is more fair for this guy as for me. Your comments? [Editor Rob: yeah, maybe he should be given the full benefit of doubt, not many get that privelige ;-) He is standing much better with Jones as he does with 50 cent somewhere and there I guess can look near the 6ft...
as for Jones, hmm I've yet to add this geezer, but beside Duchovny could he be legit 6ft. If we give duchovny 184cm...]
yupyup said on 15/Apr/06
On Nick Cannons show WildNOut Tyra Banks was on there and they stood face to face. Models heights are always dead on. Tyra Banks is 5'11 and she was about a half inch taller. They both had on sneakers. That would make Nick Cannon about 5'10 and a half. Real close to 5'11. Unless Tyra is 6'0. Then that would make him 5'11 and a half.
[Editor Rob: this guy has been having a long-term 'benefit of doubt' with his posture...]
MD said on 11/Apr/06
He was also shorter than Tyra Banks, who was in heels on his shoe. Supposedly, she's 6'0" in her heels. Again, as many have already said, he's no taller than 5'10".
Anonymous said on 10/Apr/06
Hey did anyone see that show of his on mtv when he had rapper Paul Wall as a guest? Paul Wall is 5'9 at the most, and that's being very generous. Paul looks exactly the same height as Nelly when they stand together. Anyhow, Nick was maybe an inch taller than Paul. No way Nick's taller than 5'10.
MD said on 8/Apr/06
Nick was just on Carson Daly's late night show, and he was at least 3" shorter than Daly. He was nowhere near Carson's 6'1" Seriously, I'm sticking with 5'10" max, I can't believe he keeps being listed at 6'0"
smokeblower said on 3/Apr/06
orlando jones is 5'9"
said on 2/Apr/06
after thinking a lot I do think Nick is a legit 6'0"-footer but his posture is awful, that's why he looks about 5'10" very often. It seems to me that I've found a solid fact that Nick is 6'0"(Click Here
(I))- here he is eye to eye with Orlando Jones(6'0"-footer).
P.s.Another congratulations for Mr.Rob for his excellent job.
MD said on 25/Feb/06
BTW, I'm the anonymous that posted the pictures. I accidentially forgot to include my name. He's 5'10.5" at the very most.

i agree he did appear to be the same height as tyra

Yeah on his wild'n out show he stood next to Tyra Banks and was about the same height as her maybe a little taller...i'd say 5'10.5"
ok said on 4/Feb/06
on the clip of his show Wild N Out, he was about an inch taller than Tyra Banks. So either Tyra isnt 5'10, or Nick is really 6'0
Anonymous said on 2/Feb/06
Editor Rob, please bring this guy down. I really give him 5'10" at the VERY most barefoot.
Look at him with 5'8" Kanye. Even with the odd angle you could really only give him an inch or two on Kanye.
And 5'8" (varies with the boots he loves to wear) Randy Jackson:
And with 5'10.5" to 5'11" rapper Chingy...
Really, this guy looks almost exactly my weight and height. I'd guess him in barefeet to be 5'10" at the very most, and 160-165lbs at the most. I hope this helps. The 6'0" is ridiculous; even 5'11".

I don't think he is a 6 footer, becasue in a music video with r kelly, he is definitely quite a bit shorter. r kelly is 6 foot 1, and I saw a definite height difference in the music video gigalo. i'll say he's 5 foot 10.

5'10.5 the ppl have spoken. No way is this guy 6'0.
MD said on 10/Jan/06
Yeah, he needs to be brought down at least half-an-inch.

I was watching the BET Awards and Nick Cannon, Mario, and Amerie(I think it was her but can't remember) were presenting and Mario was taller than Nick. So either Nick is shorter than 6 feet or Mario is taller than 6 feet. BTW, Mario was wearing tennis shoes that looked liked Air Force Ones and Nick was wearing dress shoes.

ive looked at most of the photos and i think he is 5'10-5'11" , somewhere around there. his skinny build makes him look taller , but he doesnt tower over 5foot8 kanye west, he only looks about 2-3inches taller then kanye.

I have been to Nick Canon"s show WILD -N-OUT three times so far(its enteratining) and every time I have sat in the the front row, right next to the stage. I am 5'7 and there is no way he is 6 feet tall!! He has walked right by me, and the first thing I notice is he is not as tall or as defined as he is on TV. He is about 5'9-5'10, and he is skinny! I was with my friend who is 5'10 and they were identical... no way he is 6 feet .. most of my frieds are 6 feet and above and I stood next to him...there is now way! 5'10 sounds rite
[Editor Rob: you might be onto something here...a few folk think he might not be 6ft]

Ok so Im sure nobody is going to believe me but here goes. I work at Target Unfortunately and we opened at 5am for the biggest shopping day of the year today and there were hundreds of people there. Nick Cannon lived in San Diego his whole life and has a house here but I never thought he would come to Target. He was dressed a little bit scruby and had a hat on. I didnt wanna go up to him cause he looked mad almost, no bodyguards or anything. Anyways when I purposely walked past him we were like exactly the same height almost! I mean he could've been maybe 6'0.5 but at the shortest without the hat Id give him 6 even. One thing I can tell u is that he has the worlds worst posture and hes not very attractive in person. But he did buy $800 worth of pillows when he came through my friend Anna's Line. I Will give Rob my work number if he wants through e-mail and let him call Target directly and ask them if Nick Cannon was spotted shopping here on the 25th Friday of November. Peace Kids

Once again, it's a pic with a hat on which is nearly impossible to guess where you head ends or beings. I don't know about you, but if I had to estimate off that picture the difference is a bit greater than 1 cm. lol
said on 25/Oct/05
One more that should make it obvious that he's not 6':
1. Nick near 6'0" Orlando Jones:
2. Nick with 5'8" Kanye West (bad angle):
What's the height difference there?[Editor Rob: seriously at times this guy's posture is terrible...sometimes he looks all of 5ft 10. I tried to find this guy near our old friend Quddus. That pic is hard to visualise difference though as you need to tilt head to left and consider something else. Anyway, he looks close to 50, but 182cm might actually be more accurate for this guy...]
MD said on 17/Oct/05
Yeah, the 6'0" seems to be a bit of exaggeration:
1. Nick Cannon and 5'9" Travis Barker (Blink 182 drummer):
2. Nick Cannon and 5'8" Kanye West
3. Nick Cannon and Ashely Simpson
I don't know if these are just bad camera angles in EVERY photo, but he looks 5'10" tops (I would put him at 5'9.5").

There is a picture on Gettyimages where Brian McKnight is a head taller than Nick Cannon. Brian McKnight is the same height as Terrell Owens, who happens to be a combine 6'2". I guess is that Nick Cannon is a legitimate 5/9" when barefoot. Brian McKnights height can be substantiated at 6'2" since I was able to compare him to Terrell Owen.
Smoke said on 2/Apr/05
Had yet another look at this guy in pics and have changed my mind, and I've gotta agree with my man J. that Cannon may indeed be a 6 footer. Maybe Milian was feeling extra short the day she took the pic with Nick from my previous post and chose to wear her 4 inchers. Another pic with Milian will prove that Nick is just about a head taller than 5'2" Milian and that would put him at just about 6'0".
Smoke said on 2/Apr/05
I totally agree with xao, Nick's build has a big influence in making him seem taller than he actually is. 6'0" is no giant height, but he definately doesn't seem this tall anywhere you see him. Here's him with Christina Milian, now granted she's wearing heals, but she's 5'2"! Even in heals she should be almost a head shorter than Nick.

(http://editorial.gettyimages.com/source/search/details_pop.aspx?iid=52455199&cdi=0)-K.West(5'8.5") and Nick Cannon(6'0"???)- on the photo I don't see such a big difference beetwen them.
Smoke said on 28/Mar/05
I don't know if it's the fact that Nick is a skinny guy or what, but I just can't see him being a 6 footer. He looks 5'11" the more I see him in pics.

MrCelebheightsEditor you've showed very interesting picture(http://editorial.gettyimages.com/source/search/details_pop.aspx?iid=50827664&cdi=0)-with Nick Cannon and leaning Terrell Owens. If Terell Owens
is 190cm - he is higher on this photo than Nick about 8-9cm and is leaning. When he straightens up he will add about 2cm in height in my opinion. Simple Math (190cm-8 or 9 cm - 2cm)=about 179-180cm(5'10.5"-5'11").May be he looks on the photos 182-183cm cause he's really thin and it gives illusion of him being higher.
