  1. Looks like there’s more to the story, but I could not catch that. Kudos to that kid for sticking to his hair cut, he is years ahead of other kids his age! But then the Netherlands has always been leading the rest of the pack on many social issues, like this great song (with English subs) “Two Fathers” in the Dutch “Kids for Kids” show. But then the Netherlands has always been years behind the pack, since this 2005 show looks like one from the 1980s! ;)

  2. A dramatic dance that indeed needed no words…
    @Chimel: Thanks for “I Have Two Fathers”, it was lovely.
    😈I normally don’t submit video links but I feel this one being somewhat related,(boy/dance) it should be ok.
    If you have a❤️it’ll be well worth your checking out.
    With almost 4million views I’d assume a few of you may have already seen it!

  3. Boy, I really hate when Producers, Directors, [and ultimately] Cameramen cut away from the performance on the stage to show the expressions and “feelings” of the judges or others on the side stage or audience. This one was particularly critical because it was just at the end of the dance. I don’t give a shit how the judge is looking at the performers — it’s NOT important. America’s Got Talent and American Idol were/are some of the worst of this crap (and it’s spread to other countries as well).

    I disagree about the hair style (the length is fine). And that style doesn’t make him “years ahead of other kids his age!” — actually, the opposite. It’s not the worst, by far, but an even cut is simply more attractive.

    But the dance was fine. And it’s too bad there isn’t [at least] English Subs on this, but I presume it was just for the Dutch audience (and surrounding.) But putting it on the Internet gives performances like this a much larger/wider audience and Subs for different languages explain the performances so much better. Yes, we can “guess” what’s being said, but I’d have liked to hear/see the actual dialog.

  4. I agree. This video should be subbed in English to be understandable by all English speaking people on this site.
    Also I’d like to request all English video’s on this site to be subbed in Dutch so I can understand them without a translation tool.

    1. You might find that funny (and it was, slightly), but there’s a very important distinction:
      English speaking population is heads and tales more than the dutch. America (alone) is nearly 19 times the population of the Netherlands (not including all the other English speaking countries). So, by simple logic, providing English in your videos automatically provides a different language video a vastly larger viewership. It really IS that simple.

        1. You’re right. It should have been “tails”. My bad. Corrected. Thanks for pointing that out in your language. :-)

  5. Bullying is a sign of sexual interest. This interest may be latent in the mind of the bully, but it’s still there.

  6. @penboy

    By that logic, please only sub in Spanish. Or even better, just use Chinese.

    This vid is not meant for viewing outside of this region. Nor do they have incentive to bring it to a wider audience, it doesn’t bring in a € more.

    I could translate it totally, but I am too lazy. So I will leave it at a few remarks.

    Why they showed one of the judges crying is, because he is gay and relates very well to bullying as is appears.

    The boy confirmed he had a rough time with bullying, when asked. And he told them he cries every time when he performed this dance.

    1. “This vid is not meant for viewing outside of this region. Nor do they have incentive to bring it to a wider audience,”
      Then why was it posted to the Internet? Do they seriously think that only Dutch people will view it on the Internet? I’m pretty sure they aren’t that damn stupid.

      “it doesn’t bring in a € more.”
      You don’t know that and I’m pretty sure Netherlands has some sort of Copyright laws and would charge some people/organizations for re-posting (imbedding) videos on their websites if it were/is feasible.

  7. It was posted so people go link to it and share. And they hope people will watch their show, so advertisements will result in in more €€. As it’s only broadcasted in the Netherlands, more languages don’t help much.

    As far as I know embedding is fair use. And doesn’t bring in €€

    1. “As it’s only broadcasted in the Netherlands, more languages don’t help much.”

      Except that it was posted on the Internet. So, your “logic” doesn’t wash.

      “As far as I know embedding is fair use. And doesn’t bring in €€”

      If it is “fair use,” then why do Corporations employ a bank of lawyers to send out notices for websites to REMOVE their videos? Again, your answer doesn’t wash. Try another laundry.

  8. “Except that it was posted on the Internet. So, your “logic” doesn’t wash”

    The fact that they didn’t sub it and posted it to the internet supports my theory rather well. How hard is it to understand they don’t care about translating it? Its in Dutch, its meant for people who have access to their channel, so people from the Netherlands mostly. Everyone else is welcome to see it, but they are not putting in effort.

    “If it is “fair use,” then why do Corporations employ a bank of lawyers to send out notices for websites to REMOVE their videos? Again, your answer doesn’t wash. Try another laundry.”

    Well its embedded in the post on milkboys. Doubt that Josh is paying for that. And YouTube allows it and even makes it easier. Rulings in the EU on embedding content seem to allow it as long as you are not circumventing pay walls etc. So hiring lawyers will not help you. A pay wall would, but would defeat their efforts towards their goal: making people watch the show on TV.
