"So You Think You Can Dance" choreographer — and former contestant — Travis Wall is nominated for his third Outstanding Choreography Emmy at this Sunday's ceremony, but he still doesn't know what he'll say if he wins. "I truly don't even know what I would say! Am I supposed to prepare a speech or something?" he tells Yahoo TV. "It would mean the world to me, and how hard I've worked to get to where I am! It would definitely be a goal achieved and such a great honor and memory every time I [would] look at the trophy." Wall, who began his career in a Dr. Pepper commercial and starred in "The Music Man" on Broadway, will also be tappin' his toes as part of an Emmy ceremony performance celebrating great dancing on TV. Inspired by some of this year's Emmy nominees, the number is "really entertaining and really fast! It's over before you know it," Wall promises.

In honor of his Emmy nod and dance number, we asked Wall to give us the scoop on his favorite TV shows, movies, Tweeter, TV crush, and other pop culture obsessions.
