Stevie Wonder On ‘Dancing With The Stars’?

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Stevie Wonder[/lastfm] revealed a huge announcement on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, saying that he’s considering getting his boogie on for the hit celebrity show Dancing With The Stars! But there’s only one catch — Stevie will only do the show after reaching this one goal…

After appearing and performing on Ellen Wednesday, Stevie revealed on the show that he’s considering joining DWTS!

When Ellen asked “Is there any truth to the rumor? Are you thinking about doing ‘Dancing With the Stars’?” Stevie responded, “I’m losing weight. When I get to where I feel like I’m gonna look good enough for what I wanna do, I’ll do that.”

Though Ellen told him you don’t really need to loose weight to get on the show, since the show takes the weight off, Stevie joked, “I’ll look good in the beginning and I’ll look even better in the end.”

If he goes through with DWTS, he’ll be the first blind celebrity on the show. The show has already had two disable contestants dance — Marlee Matlin, who’s deaf, and Paul McCartney’s ex-wife Heather Mills, who’s an amputee.

In related Stevie Wonder news, the legendary singer will be joining the K-EARTH 101 Morning Show live in studio on Monday, Dec. 5th to promote his House Full of Toys benefit show!

    I say go for it Stevie! There is one artist I admire because of his ability (take the “dis” out of disability and you get ability, right Fee-Fi (childhood nickname for Fiona) sweetheart?) to have overcome his disability (since birth from what I read) and persevere to be a great musical artist; also love his great songs! GO FOR IT STEVIE!

    Good for his dream of “making a difference” and doing that charity work for the hospital.

    I dream of (Patch Adams Dream) of making a difference at Sick Children’s Hospital in Toronto and Mattel Children’s Hospital in L.A. one day (I hope mine happens too!) My brother was a patient at Sick Children’s hospital in Toronto many years ago (psychiatric).

    Check out these sites I’ve been dreaming on and you’ll see why!

    Hold on, I’m gonna re-check the links and send it on a second blog. Stay cool!

    I’m back! (H-I-I BACK!) I feel like I’m at an AA meeting (“My name is Jinny Exstead and I’m an alcoholic!”–Nancy Mckeon as Jinny Exstead from “The Division”

    Here are the two links I mentioned in the previous blog:

    For those who are interested (A Patch Adams dream here for me and to “make a difference” as RainbowRay by raising funds for Toronto Sick Children’s Hospital and be associated with them in the future).

    Click on “Visiting Sick KIds”, then click on “Tour Sick KIds”, then click on “Sick KIds virtual tour” Enjoy!

    This is the “Children’s Mattel Hospital” in L.A. which opened in 2008 I believe (info from their video and a “Patch Adams” dream; raising funds for that hospital one day)

    Click on “About Our Hospital”, then click on “Take a video tour” and/or “Video gallery”. Enjoy! I hope both these dreams come true because that’s how bad life has been!
