Happy Birthday to ya Stevie Wonder!!! My favorite musical genius was born 63 years ago today as Steveland Hardaway Judkins (his last name was later changed to Morris) in Saginaw, Michigan. In this 1974 photo, he is performing his classic “Living For The City” on “Top Of The Pops” in London. Photo: David Warner Ellis/Redferns. In the comment section, let me know what your favorite Stevie song is (Is it possible to have just one?)

Panettiere doesn’t blink an eye at that list, or at the prospect of more misbehavior. “Oh, I’m game for anything,” she says.

Now I just want to know about the fate of Happy Endings (doubtful) and Nashville (?!?).
