Height preferences are related to time and culture, however, differences remain for men and women. According to a survey conducted by Ipsos, the perfect height for men was higher than the ideal height for women.
According to 45 percent of surveyed participants in Belgium, men’s ideal height was between 177 to 185 centimeters. As for women, 49 percent of respondents stated that the ideal height should be between 165 and 175 centimeters

In many European country it’s preferable for woman tallish or average height (slightly above average)

If you look at this picture you can see a pretty substantial footwear advantage that nick has over John.
John’s in borderline converse while nick is gaining at least 1.25 inches of height

Hey Rob

How tall does John Legend look here compared to to BTS?

He seems around the same height as most of them.

John Legend Height

Editor Rob

a fair few BTS are 5ft 8 range, he looks average height with them.

Take a look at this video with John Legend and Nick Jonas around 2.00 of the video John looks shorter or level with Nick

5’8 looks more likely than 5’9

Christian 6’5 3/8″ said on 16/Nov/19
It’s funny how many of the “sexist men in the world” are of around average in height. Goes to show you that height doesn’t determine how attractive you are, at least not as much as the media wants you to believe.

FiveEightJake said on 13/Nov/19
Sexiest man alive apparently Rob, goes to show height isn’t everything! If only you could downgrade him to 5’8.5 (my height) then us low average height guys might get an ego boost for a change. Not gunna guess him as I’ve never looked at his height and it’s already a tad low.

Lamont Cranston said on 15/Sep/19
Seems like a nice guy. and also appears to be another celebrity with a gigantic head. pictures with his wife make his head look like a basketball next to (hers) a grapefruit.

I wouldn’t guess 5’8 that low. John look 5’9-5’9 1/2.

I’m with MD on this one. Here is John Legend with Taye Diggs: Click Here

He definitely looks 5’8″ here. If anything, Taye Diggs has worse posture than him.

He looks like a 5″7 guy to me, saw him a few years ago and towered above him, we were both wearing flat shoes, and im 5″10.

MD said on 16/Feb/16
John standing what appears to be maybe a foot-length into the foreground next to his wife and 5’7.5″(ish) Big Sean:

You bunch of trolls who posted 5’6″ should have written 5’5″ instead.

John is not a full 5’9″.

marcus said on 26/Nov/14
he’s 174/175cm. his wife though. i doubt she’s 174cm, more like 172/173cm

haters. said on 18/Jul/14
this website is getting out of hand, obviously he is between 174-175cm, his wife might be 5’8. Whats with the “he’s 5-6, 5-7”. Stop.

Kendall said on 26/May/14
You guys are delusional. His wife is a strong 5’8 and in flats he stands an inch taller than her.

jm said on 7/Mar/14
I believe he is 5’7 he is not 5’10

Kin said on 1/Mar/14
I think he is closer to 5’6. I saw him at Randstand in Baltimore a couple years ago. I was literally less than five feet from him. I was surprised that he was so short. I’m barely 5’2 myself.There is no way he’s over 5’6.

Anon said on 20/Feb/14
If he was truly 5’7-5’8, Chrissy Teigen would tower over him in any of the pics of them at formal events where she is wearing heels (just look at any pictures where they are standing straight up rather than posing for the photogs). and she ain’t unusually short for a model (see: Kate Moss) – go look at her standing with Irina Shayk or a number of other fashion models.

Anon said on 20/Feb/14
He looks shorter than almost every male in his instagram pics. There’s one with Desmond Howard during a celebrity game; everyone was wearing athletic shoes so the difference in shoes is marginal. The NFL combine is very accurate in terms of measurements and it is barefoot only. Desmond is listed at 5’10 and John is a touch shorter than him in the picture. So I’d say 5’9 is pretty accurate

Grammys said on 26/Jan/14
He’s about 2 inches taller than Ryan Seacrest at the Grammy’s backstage.

MD said on 4/Dec/13
I definitely think he’s closer to 5’8″ than he is to 5’9″. He consistently manages to look just below average height, even with fairly good proportions.

MD said on 17/Oct/13
With 5’7.75″ Jeremy Piven (if Jeremy is that tall, of course):

With 5’10” Chris Rock:

You can’t see their feet, but you can see the floor in the background of one of the pictures, and it’s pretty clear they are on the same level. Even if we entertain a scenario in which John has on the flatest shoes and Chris some heeled boots (an unlikely scenario), there is still more than an inch difference between the two.

He passed directly in front of me at a club. I’m only 5’10” and I had to look down to see the to of his head. I think he may be add short as 5’6″ or 5’7″. He was well below my eye level.

averagegiant said on 21/Aug/13
from the photos md provided there is no way he is 5’9.

Dj said on 9/Jun/13
I’m 5’10” flat without shoes, I was a good 2 or 3 inches taller than him when I met him in Soho. I say about 5’7.5

avery said on 8/May/13
Just saw him at Whole Foods in TriBeCa. I’m 5′ 7″ and he’s at least two inches taller. He’s a solid 5′ 9″. Maybe more. he was wearing Lanvin low tops. You can’t get a lift into those. Maybe 1/2 inch at best. I know from experience.

leonari said on 18/Feb/13
Looked somehow short while performing at the NBA Allstar Game yesterday. Could be 174.

hello said on 4/Jan/13
saw him and his gf chrissy teigen at the airport a couple months ago. i was wearing flat combat boots and i could see clear over his head. i’m just south of 5’10”. also, chrissy was wearing heels and i was taller than her. she’s a legit 5’7.5″/5’8″ max

hey said on 29/Aug/11
5-10 lol he’s 5-7.5 or 5-8 max
Viper said on 30/Jun/11
LOL, claims 5-10 yet is really 5-7.

He looks like a solid 5-7.

Can you help me out with this picture? Here he is with 5’10” Chace Crawford and a 5’8″ish Penn Badgley:

I said it some months back, but this guy looks closer to 5’8″ than 5’9″, and picture after picture seems to be confirming this.

he does look shorter there, but maybe chace could be 179cm himself, I might be wrong with him!

Stop Lying Derek.
He cannot be 6’2. It’s impossible.

cynthia said on 15/Feb/09
i saw john legend perform in Cali, and he looked so short , he walked right by me , i am 5″6 i would have to say maybe about a inch or so taller , but not no 6ft .. impossible .

derek said on 26/Jan/09
yeah i met him in person hes actually 6’2 ish give or take half an inch

the geek said on 14/Jan/09
Saw him perform on jay leno and he was standing next to Jay leno. Jay leno had a good couple of inches over him and Leno supposed to be 5’11”. So, 5’8″ or 5’8″ and a half sounds about right.

Anonymous said on 12/Dec/08
Legend is no more than 5’8″. I’m around 5’7″ and I looked as tall if not taller than him standing next to him. But really, he is one of those people where you don’t notice how tall they are when you next to them in person.

AME said on 12/Sep/08
I was in the elevator with him yesterday. I am 5’10” and a half and he was at least an inch or 2 shorter than me. I’d put him probably around 5’8″ to 5’8″ and a half, but no taller than 5’9″.

John Legend is a frequent guest on Bill Maher’s show and they look the same height, so I would say he is no more than 5’8″.

MD said on 10/Sep/06
I understand that Rob, but you have all of these pictures with celebrities of known heights (or at least in the general vicinity) versus the few at the top.

MD said on 9/Sep/06
I understand the pictures above, but how do you explain away him almost being the exact same height as Ludacris? Even if you tack on an extra inch, he’s 5’9″ at most.

Also, here he is with Pharrell Williams and Kanye West both listed as 5’8.5″:

Sorry, but John isn’t anything over 5’9″, and that’s the very top of the scale.

[Editor Rob: the women had said 5ft 8 as her height, although. you never know of course, but 5ft 9 can be closer]

MD said on 29/May/06
Here is another photo with Ludacris

Seriously, he has at the very most on Ludacris, who you list as 5’8″

J. said on 2/Apr/06
His hair makes him look taller. Plus, he has a small, slender frame so that can also create the illusion of standing taller than he is.

MD said on 1/Apr/06
Rob, you may want to check out this one, again. John Legend is 5’8″ or 5’8.5″. Here he is with supposed 5’8″ Ludacris, who I think is actually closer to 5’7″-5’7.5″

And, again, he’s only half-and-inch taller, at most, than Kanye West, who himself is only 5’8″ max.

Seriously, this guy is somewhere in the 5’8″ range, barefoot.

Glenn said on 13/Jan/06
he looks 5-8 to me when I see him.

MD: Looks like it could be an inch if Legend straightens out.

5’9.5 sounds about right.

From an email by a lady called Nikki,
“John Legend told me that he is 5’10”. I’m 5’8.5″, here are a few pictures with me and John. In the 1st/3rd I had heels, the other 2 tennis shoes”

MD said on 25/Oct/05
John with the suppossedly 5′-8.5″ Kaye West. To tell you the truth I see a half and inch difference at the very most.

You be the judge.

I saw John Legend at Hotel Gansevoort. He is so mini! He was with a small entourage exiting the hotel when they stopped to talk to one of the prettiest girls I have seen in a while. Maybe he isn

J. said on 4/May/05
If he is 5’10”, then Kanye is shorter than 5’8.5″. I originally assumed John Legend to be 6’0″ because in his music video “I Used To Love You”, he had a good 3 inches on Kanye. Hmm . I’m thinking Kanye may be shorter than 5’8″. I remember seeing him peform live before he blew up and he looked quite tiny on stage. (Also on Kanye’s song “Last Call”, he laments that he couldn’t play basketball because he was too short . go figure)
