Jamie Foxx got Will by a cm.

5'9" is the right height for him, there is a chance for 5'8.75 as well.

Rob how tall would apl de ap be? I'm seeing 5ft 6 listings but looks shorter than this next to fergie
Under 5ft 6 a bit I'd have guessed
Jonathan Wiklund said on 27/Dec/18
I 5'9 is the right height. He looks that tall next to Danny O'Donoghue in the hall of fame music video and Danny is a legit 6'3 guy.

I meant he is clearly shorter than Michael Jackson. Sorry

Rob, I think he needs a downgrade. Click Here
He is clearly shorter than Michael Jackson there and Michael Jackson was a weak (5'9) Click Here
and he is no taller than Usher (5'8).

He appears no taller than Usher (5'8). Click Here
He is clearly no shorter than Michael Jackson who is a weak 5'9. Click Here
He is only between 5 and 6 inches taller than Nicki Minaj. He is definitely lower than 5'9. 5'8.5 at max. 5'7.75 at minimum.

I guessed 5’9 range. He seemed fairly average.

the reason he stood taller than Cheryl Cole is she is nowhere near 5ft3

That 5ft9 written here is exactly what I would have reckoned for Will!
I saw him on 'The Voice Kids' last week and didn't have too good an opportunity to take in his height, but then I was doing a comment on Pixie, so I might have missed out!
This week, however, there have been two so far. Pixie is wearing gigantic platforms and of course in that get-up, she is going to look taller, but I've seen Will stand taller than 5ft3 Cheryl Cole in mega high heels, so I knew he couldn't be small.
I think he's great as a mentor! I haven't seen him perform with the 'Black Eyed Peas' yet and the only times I have seen him have been on talent contests, but it's on shows like this that you can find out what they are like as people, and Will definitely gets the thumbs up from me! 👍
Not to mention 5ft9!

Here he is with listed 5'9" Austin Mahone:
I thought maybe Austin had grown, but I'm not sure that's the case. Here is Austin with 5'7.5" (maybe slightly less, actually) Big Sean:

@Editor Rob: Yeah I noticed that as well. Don't get these folks saying he's a lift wearer, from what I've seen it's quite the oposite... Like here he's basically wearing socks compared to Ricky and Sir Tom in dress shoes: Click Here
Think I could see him between 5'9 and 5'9.5 to be fair.

@Editor Rob: You think near 176 cm is possible or would you guess he's not over 175?
[Editor Rob: it's not impossible, at times he can wear thinner shoes I noticed.]

175cm seems generous?
fsd said on 12/Mar/14
he's a weak 5'8 ft in some pics with david guetta listed 5'9ft he's almost the same height and in other pics he looks shorter by 1-2 inches i think he might be a lift wearer .
GKay said on 5/Jul/13
He looks at least a couple of inches shorther than 5ft10 Tom Jones when stood next to eachother on The Voice/
Short dude said on 14/Jun/13
he's in need of a downgrade. 5ft 7 on a good day.
Anonymous said on 2/Mar/13
He's not that tall. I met him. I'm 5'10 and he was a lot shorter than me.
The22 said on 30/Dec/12
He'd be shorter than jamie foxx I think barefoot. Will.i.am likes to wear big extravagant trainers that look like space boots!

I want to b a taller boy.
Silent d said on 5/Feb/12
No way he is same height as jamie foxx. I think jamie might be a little taller. 174cm.
James said on 16/Jul/11
You must be a woman. Barely taller than 5'2? That's almost as bad as when my girlfriend said that there was "about a 10" difference" between David Haye and Wladimir Klitschko.
Phil said on 31/Mar/11
Was just on American Idol with Jamie Foxx who is also 5'9' and they were the same height...but they both were a good 2 inches taller than Ryan Seacrest who is "supposed" to be 5'7.75"
Candy said on 30/Mar/11
I met Will.i.Am at a conference this year. I had on some pretty high heels, so I was kind of standing over him. However, I think he may have been about my height without my heels on, which is around 5'8. At the lowest, I would say he is around 5'7. Definitely not 5'5 or shorter.
Tim said on 17/Feb/11
Yh thats a pretty accurate height

I don't know BIg T. The Most ridiculous claims are from women...

Why must we put up with women making ridiculous estimates on so many pages

I met him at a club in Ottawa. I'm 5'8" and I got to give him a hug. He's barely taller than my mother who is 5'2" I've hugged my mother plenty, so I have a good comparison:) Will I Am is no taller than 5'5"
Jimmy said on 18/Dec/10
Wears huge boots 24/7. On stage, in music videos, interviews, etc.
He's more than likely 5'8 but 5'9 with those boots. I've seen pictures of him and it's pointless trying to compare him to other celebrities because of his huge boots.
Dean said on 11/Dec/10
About an inch taller than 5'8 Dermot on X factor...he may have had big boots on though? For me he cant be more than 5'9 but more than likely 5'8 or 5'7...5'8 would be the safest bet..5'9 is generous tbh considering footware
T.J. said on 9/Dec/10
5'10" is 178 cm, so that's not even possible.
Buggys said on 30/Nov/10
5 feet 9 is equal to 175 cm ?? this is so wrong..5 feet 9 is about 179 or 180 cm
Jimmy said on 10/Nov/10
Always wearing thick soled shoes. Probably 5'8 but gets an advantage with those boots/trainers he wears.
anonymous said on 31/Oct/10
ive seen him im 6 foot 1 and i swear i could pet him like a dog hes no bigger than 5 foot 1 id say
silbrandir said on 3/Jun/09
I hung out with him in NYC 3 weeks ago, I'm 5'9", and he seemed a little shorter than me or about my height, although he was wearing a beanie, so i didn't get a good look at where the top of his head was
Daniel said on 9/May/09
Sure Hollywoodfan? For what I saw was no less than 5 inches, in favor of Jackman, of course
LG69 said on 28/Apr/09
5'9"-5'9.5" seems right.
Hollywoodfan said on 8/Apr/09
I was acually surprised at how tall he looks when he's standing next to Hugh Jackman in the new "X Men Origins: Wolverine" movie! He looks to be only 3 inches shorter than Hugh! Perhaps he's wearing boots in the movie...but so is Hugh! Hmmmm...
DUDE said on 30/Jun/08
HE LIKE 5'8 1/2
sweetchari said on 28/Mar/08
Okay so you have Will.I.Am at five nine and a half yet MJ only gets five nine...c'mon guys!! They looked the exact same height during this clip I saw on youtube that shows them walking to MJ's recording studio in Ireland.
brother_h said on 28/Nov/07

Kevin said on 29/Mar/07

Cat Stevens said on 29/Mar/07
Glenn, how can you meet so many celebrities every day?
6'2.5'' JK said on 29/Mar/07
i always actually thought he was around the 5'8'' - 5'8.5'' mark, im actually quite surprised that he is 5'9.5''
[Editor Rob: I cna't decide if he is just 5ft 9 on the nose, glenn did you reckon he was exact 5ft 9er or not?]
Celeb Fan said on 29/Mar/07
Slim I am sorry to burst your buble but looking at this pic with 5'8 Glen, WillIam looks 5'9 with a fairly upright posture. Thank you for the wicked pics Glenn!!
Slim said on 1/Aug/06
I just met Will today at the dusit hotel, he is no way 5'9 this guy is at lease 5'11 and im sure about it.. My brother in-law is 5'9 and Will towered over him..
James said on 11/Apr/06
I thought he looked around 6 feet when standing right next to Ferie. Man, she is really short!
Anonymous said on 28/Feb/06
i agree will i am looks around 5'9/10 but taboo only seems around a inch taller in the recnt black eyed peas videos
Carlito said on 17/Feb/06
i think 5'8" max!
Anonymous said on 28/Jan/06
Will I Am is now way 5'9.5. He was 3-4 inches shorter then Terell Davis who is listed @ 5'11".(They both stood side to side on NFL Network)He's more 5'7.5.
J. said on 12/Apr/05
I also recorded him as being around this size. Taboo is around 6'0" and the other guy is 5'6"-ish. Do you agree, Rob?
[Editor Rob: yes I think that taboo is close to 6ft and other guy no more than 5ft 6ish]
