    Mel B was on the set of her new gig as host of Oxygen's "Dance You're Ass Off" on Wednesday afternoon, but during a set visit, she confirmed to'sLaura Saltman that she did a screen test for the vacant "Dancing with the Stars" hosting gig.

    Mel confirmed the news when Laura showed the former "DWTS" finalist (she competed during Season 5 with professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy), a paparazzi pic of the beautiful brunette with a "DWTS" script in her hand.

    "I was going to 'Dancing with the Stars,'" Mel laughed, examining the photo.

    "I didn't even know they took that," Mel marveled, before noting her sexy stride in the snap. "I'm strutting!"

    As for the screen test, Mel wouldn't reveal whether she was testing to become a full-time co-host with Tom Bergeron, or become one of several rotating guest co-hosts, which has been rumored following Samatha Harris' departure. She did, however, admit she had a blast.

    "I had fun with it," Mel told Laura. "I was [screen testing] with Tom. It was good."

    When asked if she can do both "DWTS" and the Oxygen weight-loss inspired dancing competition, Mel said it wouldn't be a problem.

    "The more the merrier," she smiled. "I like to do everything."

    As for Season 2 of "DYAO," which returns to Oxygen this summer, Mel said the contestants are super sweet.

    "They're really nice," she told Laura. "You're gonna fall in love with them."
