Nick Cannon shares ‘chaotic’ TikTok dance videos of him attempting to keep up with twins Monroe and Moroccan
Nick Cannon is many things: an actor, rapper and the host of the US version of The Masked Singer. He is also dad to an ever-growing brood of 12 kids.
But it seems there is one area where he’s lacking talent and that’s dancing, judging from a series of videos he uploaded to his TikTok account this week.
Cannon, 42, was spending quality time with his two eldest children, twins Monroe and Moroccan, 11, whom he shares with former wife Mariah Carey, when he decided to try his hand at making a TikTok dance video, with hilarious results.
Watch the video above.

The first in the series of videos has been sped up and is set to a remix of Chris Brown’s song Run It.
It shows Cannon dressed in an all-black ensemble paired with white Crocs. He is also sporting black sunglasses and dreadlocks as he attempts to keep up with the energetic dance moves of his 11-year-old twins in what appears to be a playroom.
Across the screen is written, “Dad never keeps up with TikToks.”
He uploaded the video with the comment, “Making this was very chaotic!” and the hashtags #coryxkenshin @#nickcannon #dance #kids #fun #fyp.

The video has so far been viewed 1.6 million times and has amassed more than 127,000 likes.
He also posted a follow-up video along with the comment “Blooper” which again shows the trio attempting to perfect the dance before it ends with an hilarious fail when he accidentally knocks over his offspring. It has so far been viewed 3.1 million times and has racked up 521,000 likes.
A final video in the series, posted a day later, starts with Monroe alone on the screen along with the words, “You act just like your dad,” which is seemingly a comment from a fan.
As she dances her way off camera, Cannon appears, this time wearing a red hoodie.

He uploaded the video with the comment, “We petty!” The video has so far been viewed more than 458,000 times.
Last year he rented out an entire indoor waterpark so he could treat Monroe and Moroccan to a day out.
He took to Instagram to share the experience, writing, “Waterpark to ourselves!!! It’s the Roc & Roe Takeover!” along with a video of the three of them enjoying the day.
Cannon shares his 12 kids with six current and former partners.
His youngest child, Halo Marie Cannon, was born on December 14, 2022, and is his second child with Alyssa Scott. The pair also shared Zen, who passed away at five months after a battle with brain cancer.
But it is not all roses being a dad to so many kids. Late last year he admitted during an episode of Paramount+ show The Checkup: With Dr. David Agus that he struggled to find time for all his children.
“Being a father of multiple kids, it’s always the biggest guilt on me is that I don’t get to spend enough time with all my children,” he said.
“One ’cause I’m constantly working and two because I’m just spread thin.”
