The Dance Phenoms: Channing Tatum and Cat Deeley


In case you haven’t seen Step Up, here’s its main attraction, Channing Tatum, in his pre-acting days. The model/actor/dancer made an obvious cross-marketing appearance on last week’s uber-gay summer reality dance competition, So You Think you Can Dance (clips here and here). The finale of that show, which is one of my summer favorites (a hot hour of mindless fluff), airs tonight.

One of the best additions to its second season has been the new British host, Cat Deeley. She was profiled in this week’s Sunday Styles section of the NYT, and told them that despite her presence on the show, she’s not much of a dancer: “I only dance when I go to clubs with my gay friends. I do a couple of hair flips and booty shakes and let them dance around me. They’re brilliant.”

With competitors like this, no wonder she fits in so well!
