The Dutch Queen Máxima made a visit to the Eurovision set in Rotterdam. This also included an interview with one of the hosts Nikkie (of Nikkietutorials)

BTW, this is the Dutch song '15 Miljoen mensen' to which Máxima refers.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wftARWunM2I


Land van duizend meningen
Het land van nuchterheid
Met z'n allen op het strand
Beschuit bij het ontbijt

Het land waar niemand zich laat gaan
Behalve als we winnen
Dan breekt acuut de passie los
Dan blijft geen mens meer binnen

Het land wars van betutteling
Geen uniform is heilig
Een zoon die noemt z'n vader Piet
Een fiets staat nergens veilig

15 Miljoen mensen
Op dat hele kleine stukje aarde
Die schrijf je niet de wetten voor
Die laat je in hun waarde
15 Miljoen mensen
Op dat hele kleine stukje aarde
Die moeten niet 't keurslijf in
Die laat je in hun waarde

Het land vol groepen van protest
Geen chef die echt de baas is
Gordijnen altijd open zijn
Lunch een broodje kaas is

Het land vol van verdraagzaamheid
Alleen niet voor de buurman
De grote vraag die blijft altijd
Waar betaalt 'ie nou z'n huur van

'T Land dat zorgt voor iedereen
Geen hond die van een goot weet
Met nassiballen in de muur
En niemand die droog brood eet


Loosely translated as:

Land of a thousand opinions
The land of sobriety
All together on the beach
Rusks for breakfast

The country where nobody will let you go
Unless we win
Then the passion suddenly breaks loose
Then no one stays inside

The country averse to patronizing
No uniform is sacred
A son who calls his father Piet
A bicycle is not safe anywhere

15 Million people
On that very small piece of earth
You do not prescribe the laws for them
You leave them in their worth
15 Million people
On that very small piece of earth
They don't have to go straightjacket
You leave them in their worth

The country full of groups of protest
Not a chef who is really in charge
Curtains are always open
Lunch is a cheese sandwich

The country full of tolerance
Just not for the neighbor
The big question that always remains
What does he pay his rent from?

'T Land that takes care of everyone
No dog knows about a gutter
With nassi balls in the wall
And no one who eats dry bread



15 Miljoen mensen (15 million people)  is a song by Fluitsma & Van Tijn, with a text by advertiser Frank Pels  that was originally intended for a commercial for Postbank NV The commercial with well-known and lesser-known Dutch people, including Herman Brood and Bettine Vriesekoop, gained great fame. Partly because of the music, this hit so well that it was released as a single. In the end it became a number 1 hit in the Dutch Top 40. The melody was used in 2003 in the number 5 Jaar (and far from finished) by the broadcaster BNN and in 2013 for the song Queen of all people in honor of Queen Beatrix.

On March 20, 2020, Davina Michelle, together with Snelle, made a new version entitled 17 miljoen mensen (17 million people), due to the outbreak of the new corona virus. Snel wrote the song as a tribute to all the people who help in the fight against the virus. Davina Michelle was originally supposed to perform in the Rotterdam Ahoy, but after the outbreak of the virus, which meant that people had to stay at home as much as possible, Davina Michelle decided to perform in an empty Rotterdam Ahoy
