Jewel to Join ‘Dancing With the Stars’?

Add Jewel to the list of rumored contestants on the next season of Dancing With the Stars.

E! Online reports that the 34-year-old singer (born Jewel Kilcher), best known for her smash 1995 hit “You Were Meant for Me,” is one of the celebrities who will take part in the eighth edition of ABC’s hit series.

In Touch Weekly, meanwhile, quotes a friend of Kilcher—who married former rodeo cowboy Ty Murray last August—as saying, “Jewel is so excited about being on the show. She loves to dance.” If recent reports are to be believed, Jewel will be going up against It’s Complicated star Denise Richards  and Jackass daredevil Steve-O.

ABC will announce the full line-up of contestants for the season—which premieres March 9—throughout its prime-time programming on February 8. Until then, let us know in the comments section—would Jewel make a good Dancing With the Stars contestant?
