Happy Birthday, Nick Cannon!
When you think of All That! famous alumni, Nick Cannon should immediately come to mind. He somehow dodged the child star curse and Mariah Carey's shadow to become one of the decade's most recognizable entertainers. Cannon still has a career ahead of him as he turns 35 years old today (Oct. 8).
Although he gets flak for his sophomoric humor, Cannon has been thriving off the same thing that made Nickelodeon decide to give him his own show: charisma. He's a charmer that entertains through multiple mediums -- movies, music, television and probably theater if he really wanted to. Although his debut album didn't go gold, it sprouted two Billboard hits: "Gigolo" and "Feelin' Freaky" featuring B2K.
Music is just a side hustle for Cannon, though. He's mostly known for being a chairman for TeenNick and the host for Wild 'N Out, an hip-hop improv show attracting multiple guests. One of its signature moments was when Kanye West, back when he was interested in rapping, dissed the entire cast in a single verse.
Wild 'N Out returned to MTV2 back in 2013, and it's been successful enough for a seventh season. So Cannon has that going for him, plus his hosting gig on America's Got Talent. He's been winning for two decades.
