The Netherlands in Junior Eurovision 2019: Matheu “Dans Met Jou”

AVROTROS chose Matheu and “Dans Met Jou” through its longrunning Junior Songfestival format. He scored maximum points, winning the kids’ jury, which included 2018’s Dutch performers Anne & Max, the adults’ jury, which included the great Edsilia Rombley from Eurovision 1998 and 2007, and the televote. “I didn’t even dare to hope that I would win,” Matheu says a day after his victory.

The Netherlands is one of only two countries to have performed at every Junior Eurovision since its inception in 2003, the other being Belarus. Matheu will seek to improve on Max and Anne’s 13th place at Junior Eurovision 2018.

Matheu Hinzen is an experienced performer and definitely isn’t camera shy. He’s appeared in films (Onze Jongens, De Familie Slim and Uilenbal), performed with Matt Simons at the Christmas Music Gala for Queen Máxima of the Netherlands and played the lead role in the musical Ciske de Rat.

Thirteen-year-old Matheu lives with his family in Weert. He can regularly be found at funfairs as his parents travel throughout the country with their roller coaster.

Matheu is really proud to represent The Netherlands in Poland. To celebrate this, he has already gone into town with friends to eat a hamburger. “They were all very proud of me,” he says. And so is Matheu: “There’s a kick when you walk on such a big stage while people sing along with your song. Man, that’s so cool.’’

What do the “Dans Met Jou” lyrics mean?

“Dans Met Jou” translates as “Dance With You”, and appropriately it’s an upbeat pop number that’s sure to draw the crowds onto the dance floor. But there’s more to the track than simply moving to the beat. It’s about love.

Young Matheu sings of a date he went on. The time flew by and Matheu desperately wants to see his crush again… because he’s been waiting for the moment all week! Young love, eh?

Despite the passing of seven days, Matheu is pretty sure that he’ll be dancing with his sweetheart again, singing ‘’we’re going out again tonight, I know for sure that I’ll be dancing with you.’’

Talking to JuniorEurovision.tv, Matheu offers his own interpretation of the number: “My song is about me heading into the city with my friends, to hopefully meet up with the girl I really like, and to dance with her, of course. I really can’t wait to give a great performance along with my dancers and to make the entire audience dance with us! That’s how we would love to Share the Joy.”

What do you think of the Netherlands’ chances? Can it be the first country to win Eurovision and Junior Eurovision in the same year? Let us know in the comments. And click here to read more Junior Eurovision 2019 lyrics.

Dutch text

Dans met jou
Ik ga vanavond weer de stad in
In de hoop dat jij er ook zal zijn
Ik heb zo met je gelachen
Maar die avond ging te snel voorbij

Ik heb een week hierop gewacht
Je zit nog steeds in mijn gedachten
Ik denk steeds weer aan jouw lach
Ik heb m’n boys al lang gebeld
En alles over jou verteld
We gaan vanavond weer op stap

Dan weet ik zeker dat ik dans met jou
Every day you spin me round and round
Je laat me zweven als een astronaut
Let’s dance this song together, it’s only getting better

Ik kan vanavond weer jouw lach zien
And your smile betovert mij
Ik kan al dagen lang niet wachten
If only I could travel time

Ik heb een week hierop gewacht
Je zit nog steeds in mijn gedachten
Ik denk steeds weer aan jouw lach
Ik heb m’n boys al lang gebeld
En alles over jou verteld
We gaan vanavond weer op stap

Dan weet ik zeker dat ik dans met jou
Every day you spin me round and round
Je laat me zweven als een astronaut
Let’s dance this song together, it’s only getting better

Dan weet ik zeker dat ik dans met jou
Every day you spin me round and round
Dan weet ik zeker dat ik dans met jou
Let’s dance this song together, it’s only getting better

Ik heb een week hierop gewacht
Je zit nog steeds in mijn gedachten
Ik denk steeds weer aan jouw lach
Ik heb m’n boys al lang gebeld
En alles over jou verteld
We gaan vanavond weer op stap

Dan weet ik zeker dat ik dans met jou
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
Je laat me zweven als een astronaut
Let’s dance this song together, it’s only getting better

Dan weet ik zeker dat ik dans met jou
Every day you spin me round and round
Dan weet ik zeker dat ik dans met jou
Let’s dance this song together, it’s only getting better

Dan weet ik zeker dat ik dans met jou

English translation

Dancing with you
Tonight, I’m going back to the city
Hoping that you will be there as well
Last time, we had so much fun
But that evening went by to fast

I’ve been waiting a week for this
You’re still on my mind
I keep thinking about your smile
I’ve called my friends
And told them everything about you
We’re going out again tonight

I know for sure that I’ll be dancing with you
Every day you spin me round and round
You let me float like an astronaut
Let’s dance this song together, it’s only getting better

Tonight, I will be seeing your smile again
Your smile enchants me
I’ve been waiting for this for days
If only I could travel time

I’ve been waiting a week for this
You’re still on my mind
I keep thinking about your smile
I’ve called my friends
And told them everything about you
We’re going out again tonight

I know for sure that I’ll be dancing with you
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
You let me float like an astronaut
Let’s dance this song together, it’s only getting better

I know for sure that I’ll be dancing with you
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
You let me float like an astronaut
Let’s dance this song together, it’s only getting better

Dancing with you
Tonight, I’m going back to the city
Hoping that you will be there as well
Last time, we had so much fun
But that evening went by to fast

I know for sure that I’ll be dancing with you
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
You let me float like an astronaut
Let’s dance this song together, it’s only getting better

I know for sure that I’ll be dancing with you
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
You let me float like an astronaut
Let’s dance this song together, it’s only getting better

I know for sure that I’ll be dancing with you

This is sweet and nice…. a kids song for young people… not an over-produced song that feel kind of forced to a kid to sing as it fits the current standards in the “grown up” market

Glad the Netherlands are getting back to what they do well at JESC. Last year was err….not really like them at all.
This won’t win but it might do well.

I think in Poland he is going to sing the chorus in English
Cause I only wanna dance with you
There’s nothing else that I won’t do
I only wanna dance with you
Let’s dance this song together, it’s only getting better…

This song is my winner and could possibly do very well in JESC. At least I hope it does. MOVES could have been a better option but their vocals were not on point so I think this was their best choice.

They had better in the national selection, but the public went with the cute boy. To me, it’s generic pop. But, he’s one of the few boys this year, and that alone will get him a high public vote.

Depends on people mood, but this one stands out for sure, so imo he’ll end up high

It sounds like the other “round and around” song from 2014 merged with their 2017 entry to create this. The Netherlands in JESC has been a real hit and miss country for me, but this is one of their better songs. It has a nice feel-good vibe. I liked last year’s song more, but I think this one will still be in my Top 10.
