Dance Contestants Are Crazy For Cat Deeley

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – So You Think You Can Dance? host Cat Deeley is worried about the sanity of the dancers on the show.

Contestants from seasons past have professed their crushes on the British beauty, leaving Deeley questioning their mental health.

She jokes, “Clearly their sanity level needs to be checked. I mean they’re great dancers, but no one said they had taste.”

The modest presenter has an idea why the dancers may be so smitten with her.

Deeley explains, “I feel very protective over them, especially if [judge] Nigel [Lythgoe] is not being so nice. I take the big sister, cheerleader role, and I think that they appreciate that.”

With the new crop of dancers coming in, Deeley plans on being there for every pop-locking, head-spinning moment.

She says, “I think it’s very important that I become part of their journey. I don’t want to just show up and have them think ‘Who’s this bird on stage with me?’”

Season four of So You Think You Can Dance? premieres this Thursday (May 22).
