Dancing With The Stars - Blind Wonder To Compete On Dancing With The Stars
Blind soul legend Stevie Wonder is losing weight so he can look good while competing on U.S. TV show Dancing With The Stars.
The Sir Duke singer insists he's deadly serious about showing off his dancefloor moves on the show.
Announcing the news on Wednesday's (30Nov11) Ellen DeGeneres Show in America, Wonder said, "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."
He'll be the first blind celebrity to dance on the show but not the first with a major disability - deaf actress Marlee Matlin and her partner Fabian Sanchez finished seventh in the contest in 2008.
