Yesterday, So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley traded in primetime for daytime, as the guest co-host of Live! with Kelly.

Cat and Kelly Ripa woke up America with plenty of witty repartee. But it wasn’t long before Kelly cut right to the chase and wanted the scoop on the NYC Season 9 auditions.

“More people than ever turned up here in New York,” Cat said excitedly. She chatted on about the infectious vibe that New York City in general gives off … it really got the auditionees going this year. Cat also doled out some juicy tidbits on the auditions and said to watch out for some great b-girls and a “delicious” Russian paso doble dancer.

Kelly asked how SYTYCD has affected the art form as a whole. Cat replied, “I think what’s happening is this real amalgamation of different styles.” Ballet is blending with hip hop, which is blending with jazz and then getting a splash of ballroom. Cat remarked that the mix is interesting and exciting!

Check out the video of Cat and Kelly getting the show rolling as they gab on about SYTYCD, Valentine’s Day, Girls’ Night Out and news bits!
