Stevie Wonder may take a turn on "Dancing with the Stars"

From Access Hollywood:

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Stevie Wonder is in talks to become the first blind contestant on "Dancing With the Stars," the legend confirmed.

"It'd be fun," he told Los Angeles 104.3 MYFM radio jock Valentine. "It's not impossible."

Wonder, 58, who signed to Motown as a pre-teen, said nothing is set in stone yet, but the dialogue to get him to show off his fancy footwork in the ballroom is open.

"Right now, it's just a thought," he said.

Though the crooner is known for his soulful pop hits like "Superstition," and "For Once In My Life," he told Valentine that he certainly has some dance moves too.

"Come on... If I have seven children, I've got to be able to dance right?" he added.

And like many "Dancing" contenders before him, Stevie said he'd be happy to use the show as a weight loss regimen.

"I think it'd be fun - working on my little stomach thing here and losing some more weight," he said.
