As the contestant rumors keep coming in for season 8 of Dancing With the Stars, and musician Stevie Wonder has confirmed that he has been asked to give it a whirl on the ballroom floor. For those of you that don’t know already…the lengendary soul singer is blind.
There is no reason why Stevie Wonder wouldn’t be smooth on the floor, the show has already featured Heather Mills who only has one leg and Marlee Matlin who is deaf.
When asked by Steve Valentine, the host of the Los Angeles’ syndicated Valentine in the Morning radio program on Wednesday about the rumours that he’ll hit the floor for the 8th series of Dancing With The Stars, Stevie Wonder said, “It’d be fun. It’s not impossible, but right now it’s just a thought.”
Stevie Wonder talked to Steve Valentine about wanting to lose weight and when Steve Valentine told him that the contestants that go on the show do lose weight, Stevie Wonder replied, “I don’t wanna be having to go there to have to lose my weight.” Stevie Wonder added, “I’ll give it a few more months, I’ll come on it and it’ll be cool.”
As for Stevie Wonder’s dancing skills, the Superstition singer said, “Come on! You’ve got to think. If I haveseven children, I’ve got to be able to dance right?”
