LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Deborah Gibson has been a teen pop queen and a Broadway star and now she's hoping to go "Dancing."
The "Electric Youth" singer hit her Twitter page earlier this week to express her interest in joining the celeb-reality show, and it appears her fans are championing her. On Friday, Deborah posted a Tweet, thanking her fans for starting a petition to get the singer on "Dancing With the Stars."
"To Ashley who started DWTS petition! Thank u!" the "Only In My Dreams" singer wrote. "Let's get crrrazy 1s of peeps to sign and then I'll make them aware : )"
Deborah hinted that her name has been in the ring for the ABC competition show before, but her appearance on FOX's "Skating With Celebrities" in 2006, may have made producers weary of inviting her into the ballroom.
"DWTS won't cast me cuz I did skating show!? I didn't produce it - just on it! Did u guys know that? Start a petition!!!!" she wrote earlier this week.
But all may not be lost, Deborah also noted that a number of those inside the "Dancing" camp want her on board.
"Most of the team there wants me - 1or2 people are putting up a roadblock n every season my name's in the ring," she wrote.
