Dan Schneider Presents: Deborah Cox Performing “Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here” On “All That”

The 90s was a great time for R&B, and Canada’s own R&B queen Deborah Cox is a testament to this fact. Her 1998 song “Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here” even held the record for longest-running number one single on Billboard’s Hot R&B & Hip Hop chart. She held the 14 week record for an entire eight years!

It was a real treat, then, when Deborah brought her soulful magic to the “All That” stage in 1999. After a lengthy introduction by our good friend Kenan in a hardhat, you can watch her entire performance. As vocals soar and style dazzles, we’re sure the studio audience and viewers across the country were impressed, especially after Kenan’s fake fiddling!

Deborah began singing at age 12 on TV commercials, and entered various talent competitions and shows including “Tiny Talent Time,” a Canadian variety show. As a teen, she performed in nightclubs, then moved on up in the world as a backup singer for the Celine Dion! After just six months backing up Celine, she was ready for the spotlight.

Starting from her first self-titled album, Deborah began dropping albums and singles, racking up at least 11 number ones on the Dance charts over the course of her career. But Deborah didn’t leave it at that, no way! After killing the radio game for many years, she began to dabble in film and theater. She starred in Elton John’s “Aida” on Broadway in 2004, and has since been involved in a number of movies both as an actress and musician.

In 2012, Deborah played Lucy in “Jekyll & Hyde” on Broadway and most recently provided vocals for the Lifetime biopic “Whitney” directed by Angela Bassett. It hardly needs saying that to provide vocals for a Whitney Houston movie, you have to have serious pipes. Deborah Cox has those pipes, and she can clearly use them!

Since she’s so consistently cranked out musical masterpieces, we can expect even more from Deborah’s career in the future. Her 6th album “Work of Art” is forthcoming, and we have a pretty good feeling it will live up to it’s name!


All That” is an American, live-action sketch comedy-variety show, which aired on Nickelodeon from 1994 to 2005, lasting ten seasons. “All That” was produced by Dan Schneider, and produced breakout stars including Kenan Thompson and Amanda Bynes.

Watch O-Town Perform “I Showed Her” on “All That”

While the 90s were known for their boy bands, the following decade started out with a bang. Case in point? O-Town! The band formed during season 1 of MTV-produced reality series “Making the Band” in 2000 was a huge sensation following the release of their self-titled debut album. Their second album, O2, though less of a chart-topper, gave us “I Showed Her.” The heartfelt ballad was performed on the “All That” stage in 2002.

O-Town first consisted of five members, Erik-Michael Estrada, Trevor Penick, Jacob Underwood, Ashley Parker Angel, and Ikaika Kahoano. When Ikaika left to pursue medical school, Dan Miller took his place in the fivesome. For those that don’t know, the O in O-Town is for Orlando, Florida — even though none of the guys are from there!

“Making the Band” followed O-Town’s journey from the very beginning, from their formation to their touring and development as a pop group. Becoming a band on a competition show meant the young men were more than just musicians, but reality stars! And as we all know from many of today’s celebs, that’s the right recipe for success.

The band’s first hit “Liquid Dreams,” is one of the band’s most memorable songs. In fact, the song recently got a shout out by James Corden in “Carpool Karaoke” with Lady Gaga on “The Late Late Show!” Now that’s staying power.

Both videos — “Liquid Dreams” and “Carpool Karaoke” — are also worth a watch. The lyrics say it all: “I dream about a girl who’s a mix of Destiny’s Child/ Just a little touch Madonna’s wild style/ With Janet Jackson’s smile, throw in a body like Jennifers’/ You’ve got the star of my liquid dream.”

Now, back to “I Showed Her” and “All That!” O-Town’s performance on Nickelodeon showcased the band’s softer and more sensitive side, especially in comparison to the much dancier “Liquid Dreams.” Just check out the video on “All That” for a moving performance in which the bandmates take turns singing verses to give the song an intimate, emotional feel.

Unfortunately, the boy band trend fizzled out in the 2000s and even O-Town could not power through. O-Town disbanded in 2003; afterwards, each member went on to develop solo careers in music. Ashley Parker Angel even went on to perform on Broadway!

In 2013, O-Town reunited for the album. Though Ashley Parker Angel declined to join the reunion, it seems like the rest of the group has had a great time coming together to make music again! They even have a Kickstarter for their newest album, where they’ve already exceeded their goal. For all you nostalgic Townies, check that out here!
