Exclusive Interview: Cat Deely Talks SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Finale

cat deeley so you think you can dance

Not only does this TV Addict not think he can dance. He knows it! Which is probably the reason — as I alluded to in an earlier post — that I never caught the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE bug that has spanned the globe. [Coming Soon: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Canada!]

That said, even a non-fan such as myself couldn’t help but get caught up in the excitement and energy as I sat backstage during tonight’s penultimate installment of the season. I mean it doesn’t take a Baryshnikov to appreciate the remarkable talent, dedication and sheer athleticism of everyone involved in the hit FOX show.

Especially when the adorable and mesmerizing Cat Deeley was kind enough to take some time out of her busy schedule mid-show to talk about what it’s like to host the show, her love of the contestants and of course her recent Emmy snub. [Hilariously interrupted courtesy of an impromptu "WooHoo" from Judge Mary Murphy!]

    I love love love her. Out of all the reality show “hosts”, she is by far the one who relates to the contestants the best. They always seem to just love her and anyone who watched earlier this season saw how just down to earth and normal she is, when she got down on her knees, wearing one of her gorgeous really short dresses, to fix the shoe of one of the dancers. I don’t know any other host that would have even thought about doing that, let alone DO it. She’s amazing, beautiful and just all around a good host. Love her. She’s so on my list! ;)

    Great interview. :) You lucky devil!

    I think Cat is a beautiful girl, but she has no compansion when announcing the people that are kicked off the show, she is to cold & needs to have a warmer response, they are just kids.
