    You know. They can do what they want to with their kids. Its their choice. Would I do the same? No. But its not my kids. Some people hit their kids & some do time out. To each his own.

    its like they chose the two dumbest parents to do this interview.
    That is not how normal dance competitions look for 8 year olds..and it is disgustingly inappropriate the way they are dancing and dressed. thats sad that our culture has died enough for them to justify thier kids acting like mini whores, and those poor kids have no idea how wrong and stupid they look doing it because of them.

    oh and btw, the pedophiles were watching anyway. you can`t make them go away by telling kids to cover up.

    The parents have the rights to those values.

    How many 8-9 year olds, and even younger girls, do you see swimming in public pools in bikinis? The bikinis show off more than those dances outfits do - so if it`s publicly acceptable for a child to wear bikini, then it`s perfectly fine for those girls to wear those dance outfits.

    The swimsuit and dance competition outfit argument is lame. They could have made a flesh coloured part between the top and bottom so the girls were a little more covered up.

    Besides, you all are acting like you`ll be perfect parents in protecting your children. So, are you not going to let your daughter wear a bikini until she`s 18? Is she not allowed to dance like she sees the chipmunks dancing on tv? Why did no on freak out about the chipmunks dancing like that to children but then freak out when it`s actual children doing it?

    Everyone just needs to grow up a bit.

    My little sister does dancing but nothing like that, she enjoys the dancing. You don`t have to do such an innapropriate dance.

    I`ve not seen the chipmunks movie (thank god) but from that small snippet i didn`t see them gyrating, shimmying, air humping and all that stuff.

    It`s the combination of the dance with those outfits that makes the clothing innapropriate

    @Reganom.. LOL, where I live? Often. It`s really not that big of a deal - to kids, it`s JUST dancing. You can`t tell a child not to dance because it`s too sexual - that`s introducing sex into their lives too soon. It`s just dance. And before you all jump at the "they`ll be introduced into sex by a pedo then" the only way a pedo would even get their hands on them is if the parents weren`t doing their job watching. And besides, pedos go after kids who DON`T dance like that, too. And, in the movie, yes.. they did. My little siblings watch the movie. It`s just dance to them, and we shouldn`t plant the sexual seed into their innocent minds. Its JUST dance. It`s an outfit that covers more than a bikini, and it`s just dance. If you watch the video and get uncomfortable it`s because YOU`RE thinking that they look sexual. When you`re a dancer.. it`s just dance.

    It`s just young girls dancing. Very well for that matter. Have you seen anyone under 10 dance? They usually have no rhythm or balance.

    I think these girls did an amazing job and shouldn`t have this kind of pressure for just doing something they love.

    It wouldn`t have been a big deal if adults (and the media) didn`t make it a big deal.

    These kids aren`t just dancing, they are being taught to dance like that. They are being taught that this is the best way for them to dance.

    And wait a second..." If you watch the video and get uncomfortable it`s because YOU`RE thinking that they look sexual"
    So because me and the majority of people view gyrating and the other sexual dance moves, and they are sexual dance moves, find it disturbing it`s because i have a dirty mind?

    BipolarBearr, the same applies to you...

    Touchet i don`t think many people have a problem with whether or not the girls can dance, it`s the age appropriateness or rather lack of.

    My problem is that they were taught that dance not with the girls themselves.

    Being a former dancer, I was never doing stuff like this when I was 8. But at the same time, these girls are way more advanced than I was at 8 and are hugely talented. I agree with the parents though--in the context of a dance competition, this isn`t really out of place. I`m sure it wasn`t really shocking to everyone at the competition, who are there to judge and admire talent, which is in abundance in these girls.

    My whole issue with this controversy is it`s the adults that are sexualizing the "DANCE ROUTINE". The kids are out there dancing in a competition performing dance moves that are part of popular choreography and routines,as far as the costumes.....one again they are only wearing shorts ...it`s not like they were wearing thongs or even anything that they wouldn`t wear walking down the street!!!
    As far as George stating that they were "bumping and grinding "..I always thought you need to grind against a partner ? These girls were fantastic dancers and I salute them !!!!!

    i can tell you in real competitions, we were marked off for dressing like that...its a DANCE CONTEST. NOT! a be a whore in small clothing contest...the costume does not make the dance.

    im not saying that what they did isnt amazing..its very well choregraphed, but its not appropriate. you can move very easily in clothing that covers up more, and no one is asking them to pull off proffesional moves at 8 yrs old.

    i still blame the parents. they should know better. the kids are catching all the negativity and any possible future come-uping for thier poor decisions...all anyone was asking for was for them to admit it may had been a tad too much..just a tad.

    if YOUR looking at those girls and thinking that they look "sexy" then clearly you dont need to be around little kids. they really are JUST dancing. and the outfits are made so they can move freely among the stage. and they are flashy but thats how they should be. there is nothing sexy about 9 year olds dancing to a realy popular song. i wasnt thinking that it was bad, i was thinking they were amazing dancers!

    So let`s take it a step further. What if these kids were pole dancing? Is that appropriate, even if the pole dancing 9-year-old is highly skilled and is unaware that the dance is highly sexual?

    Beyonce`s dance was created specifically to be sexual. IMO it`s inappropriate to have young girls emulating something like that. If they want to dance like Alvin and the Chipmunks, couldn`t you take Beyonce`s routine, modify it to remove the air humping, and create outfits that cover more of their bodies? Isn`t that a reasonable compromise?

    And another point... it`s not all about parental decisionmaking when it comes to raising children. Like it or not, we have societal norms that define the outer edges about what is acceptable for children, so to say that it`s solely the parents` decision is not accurate. Granted, this doesn`t rise to the level of getting child protective services involved, but I`m just saying...

    These parents need to be lined up along side the beauty pageant moms and removed from the gene pool. With a father as a pedophile, and controlling btch of a mother, these kids are going to grow up as empty shells. Probably hating themselves (and their parents) every day. There is a reason social workers push to outlaw this kind of thing.

    I do not think that kind of dancing is appropriate or healthy for girls that age. It makes them to see themselves in a sexual and objectified way before they`ve even gone through puberty and probably still think boys are ikky :\

    They`re fantastic dancers, yes, but they could have expressed their talent without objectifying their bodies.

    For the girls it would be fine- dress up and dance. I am sure it is what they love. but the outfits are a parody of burlesque costume. Tshirts, legging, neon and black, but sporty might have been better. You do not have to be a paedophile to feel this is not approprate. The dance is sexual- that is not something they as dancers would be aware of ( I hope not at that age) but the outfit is. some things are best left until a little older. Kids in make up- little girls learn about it and look like clowns for a few years, they get the hang eventually- unless they have adult help. Dress up and make up should be play at this age- thats how children learn.

    Bipolar you misunderstood, "you don`t have to care. get over it mr. perfect" that is what applies to you aswell.

    Kaylala i don`t find it sexy, i find it distrubing. The outfits were red and black lacey things, and i`m nearly positive that i`ve seen outfits very similar to that in Ann Summers. The kids may just be dancing but the dance moves are not appropriate.

    Also if you`re going to capitalise to emphasise (UK spelling) it`s "you`re".

    I really would not have a problem with this if they were wearing something else. These outfits just completely look like lingerie, and that combined with the dance moves is just too much. Had they been wearing leotards or even swimsuits, this would have seemed a lot more appropriate.

    That woman saying "dance costumes have ruffles and rhinestones" is a little bit ridiculous. These outfits are literally made out of what looks like red satin and black lace, and comprise of a pair of panties and a bra. My parents would NEVER have bought me anything resembling this for any purpose.

    I consider myself to be very open minded and belive that when I become a parent, I will be able to fairly balance my liberal views while raising my children to be morally upstanding individuals.
    Anyone, liberal or conservative, should look at this and think that something is very wrong with it. It`s common sense. The song choice, while it`s a subject that doesn`t apply to a child, I think is fine. These girls are great dancers and their routine could have been easily tweaked to be more age appropriate.
    But lets talk about those outfits. Did the parents buy these at Victoria`s Secret?? If these 8-9 year old girls were 21 year old women in those same clothes with those same dance moves, there is no doubt that it would be considered very sexy to most people.
    Also, are they seriously comparing it to the Chipettes dance? Dancing singing CGI animals wearing more clothes and dancing less provocatively than real life children? Childhood is too short, let them enjoy it while they ca

    i don`t think the parents really managed to justify that well... loads of people do much more acrobatic dancing wearing baggy clothes, and generally when i`m at the swimming pool i don`t shake my ass like that... i`m gonna stick to watching it without my glasses on and pretend they`re just dwarfs. that makes it ok. and hilarious.

    I don`t know if this would be so offensive if they weren`t dressed like whores. Granted the dancing is inapropriate for the age but if they didn`t look like little sluts I don`t know if it`d be such a big deal. Clearly the kids don`t realize they`re doing anything wrong. Maybe the dance instructor is to blame. If you wana teach kids to dance like that, teach stripper lessons. Stupid Stupid shiat.

    They got what they wanted, their 15 minutes of fame. It`s disgusting, little kids are growing up so fast these days, yet they don`t know it because its everywhere. I miss the good ole days when it was stuff like Pokemon >>; and `it was meant for competition` THOSE IDIOTS!!! They`re young enough yet experienced to know EVERYTHING in public makes its way onto the internet. And it was still in a room that looks like hundreds. Parents that think that is ok should not be allowed to procreate(sp?) :/ I will admit those girls are good dancers, but they should put those moves to something less... Controversial. Unrestricted movement >< I don`t see ballerina`s having issues. I wouldn`t NOT let my little 8 yeard old wear a bikini.

    no, it`s not out of context, you horrible parent. your child is wearing an outfit that i`ve seen in pornography. you do not treat your daughter as a little girl. she is your cash cow. she will probably grow up to be a stripper (who, by the way, does the EXACT same moves).

    First off, the fact that this was never intended for a "worldwide audience" is irrelevant, as it was clearly intended for an audience of some sort. Second, the fact that these moves and costumes are standard for the competition in question does not make them appropriate for 8-9 year old girls.The mother does have a point that the song is part of pop culture, and if these girls came up with the dance themselves while dancing around their room I don`t think anyone would criticizing her parenting. But when adults start choreographing bump & grind routines for little kids to perform in front of an audience while wearing lingerie, you can`t blame that on pop culture anymore. As for the ease of movement argument? I`ve been to a few children`s dance recitals and seen plenty of kids covered in ruffles and rhinestones who had no trouble moving and didn`t look like they were dressed for their next shift at the Boobie Bungalow.

    @Ubersloth: exactly.

    They`re dressing up children in lingerie. CHILDREN AND LINGERIE SHOULD NOT MIX.

    I still stand by the idea that if they were wearing something less adult, it would have been fine. There`s nothing wrong with the dance moves. I`ve seen little kids do stuff like that for the hell of it. It`s when you start dressing them up like little pornstars that it becomes inappropriate.

    A) Did he pronounce Beyonce`s name "Beyon-SEE?" I HATE IT when newscasters mispronounce things... It`s like, you went through college, did your research on the topic, but you couldn`t even be bothered to find out the proper pronunciation of a word that you`re going to say on public television?

    B) Beyonce is an ADULT, and her routine was CLEARLY meant to be sexual in nature. Why are they telling 8-9 year olds to imitate that in the first place?

    C) For the sake of research, I just watched the video for "Single Ladies." I despise Beyonce, BTW, but...

    EVEN BEYONCE WAS WEARING MORE CLOTHES IN HER F*CKING VIDEO FOR CHRIST`S SAKE!

    AND SO WERE THE CHIPETTES!

    D) I don`t care if they were performing it for a world-wide audience, the fact that they were doing it (in those clothes. I have few objections to the dance, mind you) is wrong. Period. So it`s okay for a pedophile to have pictures and videos because they weren`t meant to be seen by anyone else?

    E) Coming from a former dance student, I know FOR A FACT that you can have the same range of movement with more clothing. You don`t need to be dressed like a little whore to dance.

    And the bathing suit thing is stupid for two reasons. 1) Bathing suits are designed not to hold a lot of water so they don`t drag you down. The more clothes you`re wearing in water/a pool, the higher your risk of drowning from being weighed down. That`s not an issue here, and as I stated above, you can have the same range of movement with more coverage. 2) Bathing suits aren`t made to look like red and black lingerie.

    I think the father had a good point about the bathing suits. And sure, I understand that no one intended for this video to be viewed by millions of people. However, a lot of dance costumes, even if they give the illusion of showing skin, when you look at them you realize that the costumes are basically a unitard, or at least has nylon covering the skin. These costumes did not have that. Plus, I think it was overboard to show that much midriff. But again, the father did make a good point about bathing suits. It`s all about what is appropriate where, and a dance competition is, I suppose, as safe as a swimming pool for this sort of dress.

    That being said, I think what is most disturbing about this video, and what the parents skirted over and didn`t address at all, is the gyrations and bumbing and grinding. I don`t think that was appropriate at all! There could have been much more age appropriate choreography that would have been cute, saucy, and still suitable for young

    dance costumes are not with lace ruffles and rhinestones, they are plain.
    you can show the body line wearing plain black clothing.
    its obvious that this is not just a competition its beast outfit competition too.

    its f`uckin disgusting putting a little girl in hotpants and a bra.
    its their fault that pedofiles are now w`ankin off to this video of their kids.
    they asked for it.

    Politically correct hippies. Go to a dance competition...this is a majority of what you see. Lighten up. that are DANCING!

    The only problem here is that OTHER people can`t keep from making this an issue about sex. People should be looking at these girls as "sexy". They are great dancers; and shame on anyone for thinking anything sexual or dirty about them.

    So you`re gonna tell me next that kids pole-dancing is fine, because they`re kids and it`s not supposed to be seen as sexy?

    Look, the thing is, the nature of society is to attach certain sentiments and stigmas to certain images and all that.

    The routine, and the outfits, have been attached to sex. Not because people are perverts when they watch this video, but because I`ve seen more clothing on porn stars, and the same outfits on strippers and in lingerie advertisements.

    And don`t just say "well, society should get over it." That`s not gonna happen.

    I love that all the responsibility is placed on the parents.

    Sure they`re kids, and I`m not gonna say they`re aware of the conditioning. Watch the video again though, the kids themselves could have picked both the song and the costume from the "chipmunks" movie alone. Children`s movie are urrently designed to be entertaining for children, but are suffused with sexual and adult targeted humor that goes over children`s heads to make the movies bearable (and sometimes very entertaining) for parents. They sell better when the parents don`t mind going.

    As a consequence we teach our children certain behavioral patterns and rules about sex before they fully understand them.

    Don`t get me wrong, I`m not blaming the media. I`m blaming society. It`s not the parents fault. It`s everyone.

    You shelter you`re kids, and they won`t deal well with the majority of society. You don`t shelter them and they`re exposed to everything.

    That`s life. oh well

    Feeltheride, first of all, I`m pretty sure that "politically correct hippies" is an oxymoron.

    Second of all, it isn`t that there is anything sexual or dirty about the children. There is something sexual about the outfits. If you saw this outfit on an 20 year old, I guarantee that you would think it looked sexual.

    I personally don`t have an issue with the moves at all, and whatever issue I have with the clothes is not major. I don`t think this is corrupting their innocence or ruining their childhoods, it`s just somewhat inappropriate.

    It`s always inappropriate when kids do adult stuff.

    It does not matter they were not supposed to be seen by lots of people. It does not matter this was in the Chipmunks (first of all it is inappropiate to put adult songs in kids movies). The point is parents were stupid enough to let this happen in the first place. Society is what it is, we can`t change it according to our personal standards.

    Blaming society is so cliche in my opinion. Overall it really /is/ the parents faults. They say "they didnt expect it get so many hits" well guess what you knew that they were taping the competition.

    To use an excuse so irresponsible like "it was in a kids movie" is just not satisfying to the public. I never saw that movie but from the clip i really doubt those ANIMATED CHIPMUNKS were wearing clothes as provocative as the ones the REAL girls were wearing on that stage.

    There is nothing they could do about it now, so really there is no use of having a defense interview in my opinion but the media swallows anything the public finds popular up. They should know the media doesnt care about your side, they just want viewers to see how "bad" you really are.

    I wont blame media, because media is just the spoon which feeds us honey.

    wow...this is just sad...and hearing the parents speak on the matter only made it more upsetting. I can`t believe they try to justify it by stating that it`s pop culture so it`s ok. I understand that kids are going to listen to what they want to listen to and dance how they want to dance, but to create a routine for your child like that and slap an "outfit" like that on a child is only further promoting that it is perfectly ok to act like that. They are not only accepting of our culture of casual sex, sexy clothing, and demeaning women...they are throwing their children into it.
    Having said all of that...the girls are extremely talented. It`s a shame that their instructor had to sexualize them in order to hopefully win a competition. It just further teaches women to use their sexuality to get what they want.

    The sad thing is that 3/4 of the moves those girls were doing weren`t provocative at all. If you put them into a different routine, different song, and different outfits, it would be completely fine. Those little girls are incredibly talented and it`s a shame because their best childhood memories are now tainted by a scandal they won`t understand until their older. What`s worse is that if they get any brains when they`ll older, they`ll always question their own parents` judgment. Every adult who said that this was okay is to blame. Either they were too stupid or too ignorant to step in.

    Its no better than the supermodel little girls. Disturbing.

    it`s all about how you educate your children about sex. Letting them do a dance like this doesn`t determine how they will deal with sexuality!
    Just because they dance this way doesn`t mean they will grow up to be "sluts", "strippers", or "prostitutes".
    And parents who let their children perform in dances like this ARE NOT BAD parents. You can still have morals and dance. People are so ignorant. It`s about what you teach your children about real life.
    I, as a parent, would have no problem letting my child dance this way; because I have taught her about love and sex for what it really is.

    Just because you don`t think it`s ok; doesn`t mean you know what goes on in that home

    I wonder legally where the line is drawn between a "dance competition" and child pornography. I mean, you don`t think there are some sickos out there watching this and using it to get off?
    I don`t think those girls have any clue that what they`re doing is sexual and age-inappropriate, but all the adults do know what their movements symbolize. I think it is no different from an adult asking a young kid to undress for them. The kid has no idea what the purpose of nakedness might be, but an adult can certainly take advantage of the kid`s innocence and naivete.

    Also, as a completely random aside, all I could think about when they interviewed the parents was that the dad looked like some overgrown Zack Morris. They are so caught up in having a kid that can do something "impressive" that they don`t even care what it is the kid is doing to receive the attention.

    Meh I`m done with this. People want to take some kind of moral stand here, for all the wrong reasons, and ignore the fact that these parents are at least involved in their children`s lives. These girls will continue having fun, even after this (cause honestly, in 5 years not a one of you will remember or care about this). THey`ll most likely have overall better lives than the majority of US children raised by television with parents to self-involved/overworked/morally decrepit (pick one) to teach their children about respect and self-worth, let alone love and sex.

    Sad that people can`t just let the girls have their fun. I guarantee you the girls didn`t think about sexual connotations during the preparations and performance. That`s all from the public view. Pedo`s are gonna exist regardless of this crap, take care of your kids and they won`t matter. Let the girls have their fun while they still have their innocence FFS. It dies fast enough without public pressure.

    I can almost guarantee that the girls know this is sexual in nature. Kids aren`t stupid.

    You know, I don`t think it`s any worse than those little miss beauty pageants, which have girls this age and younger wearing make-up and sometimes "sexy" outfits.

    I can see the dancing is definitely artistic, but I can see where people would think it`s "too sexy." I remember in high school during pep assemblies dancing groups would "girate" and do other similar moves. Since it was a performance, it was considered OK. However, if we were at a school dance and people were dancing like that with each other, it was considered inappropriate.

    Maybe some people do get their jollies off from this, but think about it. They also get their jollies off from neighborhood children, children who aren`t in dance competitions that get displayed on the internet.

    Really, I think if their parents support it then it`s really not that bad. They know what`s best for their children after all.

    Ignorance is bliss with this post- I don`t want to know about it, and if i do it`ll only make me angry at the parents so why bother?

    @FeelTheRide & @rissarose Thank-you for bringing some actual knowledge to the thread :)
    Opinion is fine but tilting at windmills is a real waste of time eh? Pedos will get off looking at anything, they`re sick that way!

    idk why we should BAN ALL little girls from dancing, unless we`re Muslims! Just ask yourself, "What would Mohammed do?" then do the OPPOSITE, eh?

    Put a BURKA on those little sluts, dammit! This is what happens when you send girls to public schools! (South Park refrence!)

    I would like to point something else out. I remembered this morning about a post on here from some time ago about an army man who was being kept overseas for "child porn" for having pictures of a friend ( his little sis as i recall him saying he saw her as) in a swim suit (that covered more than these outfits) on and by his truck. so its child porn for a "pic of family" but little girls missing a pole is "a dance compition" just another reason i am embaraced to say i am an american

    here`s the thing, these kids don`t associate what they`re doing with sex, or sexiness. it`s just a style of dance they worked hard to master, and are now showcasing.

    really it`s just a misunderstanding.

    i was in dance competitions from age 3 to 12, and for at least 5 of those years i`d expect to be wearing about the same as them.

    no big deal, really.

    I find what people are reading into the clip way more disturbing than the clip itself. Poor girls, they obviously worked so hard on this. Kudos for the mastery of the movements, they`re really very talented.

    There are plenty of other dance routines that they could have done so no need for this one really. Can`t see any way to justify it.

    1) They`re good dancers. Regardless of what you say, they have skills.
    2) They`re dressed better than those 6-year-old beauty-pagent contestants, and you never hear complaints about them.
    3) Still, kinda ew

    vv what Dragonlord says! It may be `kind of ew` but in context? It`s OK!
    And I`ll add:

    4) if you`re complaining and saying the parents/instructor should be punished, you`re more right-wing than 5Cats! Laugh My Ass Off!

    I AM having a jolly laugh at y`all`s expense :)

    ok about the whole swimsuit thing, only if you put your child in a bikini does it start to be a little troublesome. There are one piece suits out there, that might as well be leotards. Which if they did this routine in, i dont think it would have been a big deal. One more thing, the look on the parents faces was complete "Oh drat we screwed up, digging ourselves deeper.

    that 8 year old girl just intentionally stuck her ass in the air....touched her toes....then shook her tits and ass......if she doesn`t understand that what she is doing is not okay....then that is horrible parenting....i don`t even care what anyone says....appalling...

    "it takes away all of the negativity if you realize that the other groups were doing the same routines"

    um.....not so much...that`s like saying

    "yeah i know we shot all of those jews...but if you think about it....at the time...everyone was shooting jews...so at the time...it really wasn`t that uncommon...it`s all about the context"

    GTFOutta here!

    I don`t know about punishment, etc. However like idiotfilter said if they don`t understand that what they`re doing is meant to be sexual in nature they need to learn that. I chaperon middle school dances once a month and it`s almost ridiculous how often I have to separate 6th and 7th graders, for fear of sexual harassment charges or something along those lines. Granted I doubt they understand what they`re actually doing but it`s almost disgusting to see pre-pubescent kids doing that stuff. /2cents

    Pedobear approves.

    The dad has a point;
    I can remember when I was 12 and in the mens change room, and a dad brought his (what looked to be a) 6 year old daughter in, and she changed in there and everything. Nobody batted an eyelash.

    I don`t agree with it, but to be honest, it`s what you can expect from a society that makes condoms and lingerie for for 12-14 year olds.

    in my opinion the dance routine was fine, i mean it didnt even look sexy since they dont have the BODY maturity in order to pull of the moves in a way that is even close to sensual. the real problem would be the outfits, which were skimpier than the ORIGINAL beyonce music video. of course, these kids are 8 years old, to them its not a matter of being sexy (which they most likely dont understand) but of having fun, and in this case dancing....the outfits were pure idiocy on behalf of the adults.

    Implying that it is wrong, is also implying that you felt it was wrong, meaning it had an impact on you, meaning you were the one thinking about the non-innocent content of it. You often see girls dressed like princesses, like their idols did it, but now their idols dress like this, so they just follow the pace, nothing wrong with it, but oh well, the Lolicon revolution is arriving, so I guess it`s not your fault, so let`s just blame japan xD

    it`s all about how you educate your children about sex. Letting them do a dance like this doesn`t determine how they will deal with sexuality!
    Just because they dance this way doesn`t mean they will grow up to be "sluts", "strippers", or "prostitutes".
    And parents who let their children perform in dances like this ARE NOT BAD parents. You can still have morals and dance. People are so ignorant. It`s about what you teach your children about real life.
    I, as a parent, would have no problem letting my child dance this way; because I have taught her about love and sex for what it really is.

    Just because you don`t think it`s ok; doesn`t mean you know what goes on in that home
