So You Think You Can Dance: Host Cat Deeley
Hailing from Birmingham, England, Cat Deeley is one of the foremost television presenters both in the United Stated and the UK. In 2005, Cat broke into the world of male-dominated television hosts when she began hosting SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, one of America’s most popular dance reality shows. The highly anticipated Season 7 premieres this summer.
Deeley was Jay Leno’s first regular entertainment correspondent on “The Tonight Show” and recently performed the same duty for “Good Morning America.” Deeley is a double BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Award winner and has won many other awards for her work on some of the UK’s hottest primetime shows, including “Stars in Their Eyes,” “CD:UK Live” (on which she appeared weekly for six years), “SMTV: Live” (which she hosted for three years), “Comic Relief Does Fame Academy,” the “V Festival” (2004, 2005), “The Brits,” “Record of the Year,” “Elton John Live from New York,” “The Latin Grammy Awards” and a one-hour special with U2, “When Cat Met U2,” for ITV.
In addition to her television endeavors Cat has begun the process of creating her own vintage inspired jewelry line partnering with QVC while simultaneously becoming the first ever Global Brand Ambassador for Links of London.
Deeley often lends her time to the Great Ormond Street Hospital, a children’s hospital in London as well as the UNICEF organization, and divides her time between her homes in London and Beverly Hills.
