Watch: 'So You Think You Can Dance' host Cat Deeley live chat

Put on your dancing shoes and join @latimes and @catdeeley for a live video chat on Tuesday at 3:30 PDT

"So You Think You Can Dance" host Cat Deeley recently received her fourth consecutive Emmy nomination for reality show host, and we know at least one fellow nominee who's rooting for her to win.

We're guessing he's not the only one either. Deeley will be dropping by The Times' studio on Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. PDT to talk about the show and the Emmys, and we'll probably ask her about throwing out the first pitch at a Dodgers game not long ago too. (Fastball? Curve? Did she get any advice from Clayton Kershaw?)

As for the Emmys, Deeley recently told The Times that her show, which received seven nominations this year (that makes it 42 for its run), has its core fans -- as well as a group of people totally unaware of its presence on the TV schedule.

"I always say our show is completely polarizing," Deeley said. "You either have people who have no idea that we even exist or people that are completely infatuated by the show and love it and don’t miss an episode."

She added that she doesn't take her own nomination for granted.

"You never know if you’re going to get nominated, and you have this internal chat with yourself where you turn around and go, ‘Look, you can’t be too disappointed if you don’t get nominated,'" she said. "But it’s lovely. For me it’s that thing of having a nomination doesn't change your life -- the show being on for 11 seasons has completely.”

Have a question you'd like us to ask Deeley? Tweet it to us using the hashtag #asklatimes and we'll pass it on.

He laughs, waves you on, riffing and drawing you in like a confidant on a bar stool or an usher in a pew between...
