    You know..in this country i have begun to realize that certain values are lacking especially in the areas of child rearing. I dont know maybe i was raised by prudes but i dont know where this could possible be ok for letting a child parade around in such outfits. The song is ok but for parents to ok the costumes..horrible and nothing gets me more upset that hearing the crowd cheer like crazy..it was like they were at a strip show, If i had a child theres no way in hell she would walk out on that stage wearing that garment. And people wonder why pedophiles have easy access to kids...heres a hint..its because parents hand them over to them..and then they blame the media and other sources for their kids being kidnapped. please feel free to leave your comments.

    Their dancing was awesome. For being around 8 years old, they did absolutely amazing. But you're right. The fact that they ARE 8 and dressing like that disturbs me.

    Yes, extremely inappropriate.

    Their parents are unfit.

    I don't necessarily enjoy having to, but I'm going to have to play devil's advocate on some points with this.

    These girls have some seriously intense ballet training, nicely channeled into the style but it drips classical training. Those fouttes are on point. The costumes, yeah, could have been a little more tasteful for that age group, but there is a marked difference between these girls and the common denominator jail bait, which is usually a little girl made up and shoved on stage solely for the purpose of being objectified for her physical appearance.

    I think you should have to take a course, get your head examined and be granted a license to have children. The so-called parents of these poor kids would have been refused and castrated/neutered.

    While I understand the criticism of the parents of the children in the video and question their judgement, I fail to see how go from there to claims that the larger population of parents in this country are lacking in values. Maybe, as a parent, I am taking this a little be more personally than I should but your generalization is pretty faulty and rather insulting.

    I'm sorry but that outfit is no worse than a bathing suit, or a leotard, so you see stomach oh my god!!!! yes the dancing is a little provacative but the outfit is not actually that horrible. Do you never go to the beach? should they be wearing burkhas?

    When I go to Haulover Beach (clothing optional) it's common to have groups of toddlers and up - and their parents/friends/relatives - wearing only their birthday suits. Nothing wrong with embracing one's own body and being comfortable with it.

    Guilty consciences are the only things that make those clothes (or completely nudity) "bad."

    I have never seen a little girl drop it like it's hot at the beach or swimming pool in a two piece.

    Nudism is one thing, but the costumes have a french maid/S&M vibe to them. Sexually suggestive to begin with, and on small children. It made my skin crawl. Stage parents are notoriously shameless. They make me sick.

    But, DAMN, they can dance!

    Oh, and the deep forward bend the one girl did reminded me of a pole dancer.

    Yes, there is (in my view) a huge difference between nudity in the context of a naturist setting vis-a-vis a more sexualized and suggestive context.

    Just as bad as Miley Cyrus' younger sister having her own line of kids "lingerie".

    Yeah, I agree we should all train our kids to look like prostitutes to make money off them. It's the American way! "Profit before parenting" is out motto!

    Well.... if they were in more appropriate outfits, it would have been a great show... It really was disturbing, and I wonder who picked and OK'd the outfits... Those look like stripper outfits, not what a child should be dancing to. Hell, BEYONCE herself wore more clothes in her damn "Single Ladies" video. What the hell?

    Parents who let their 8 year olds run around in lingerie are gonna be faced with bigger issues when Sally comes home pregnant at 15 and addicted to cocaine....

    So wrong!
    The dancing was super but I just kept thinking how messed up this is. When you are 8, you should be enjoying your childhood and the innocence that comes with it because you will never have it back. You have your whole life to act like an adult (like whores in this case)

    The dancing had some flaws in it, too many times the girls missed being in unison. I was disappointed with it. I'm not surprised with the outfits though cause people today don't have morals when it comes to competition. Well very few do. But with everything on TV nowadays it's no wonder kids are having kids. These kids' parents should be arrested & the kids' should be taken from them. It's too bad their isn't a test for having kids.

    Uh, they're under 10 o_O What early 20th century Bolshoi standards are you trying to apply to their already accomplished performance. And by accomplished I mean purely in technical levels. For some reason I anticipate trolls taking that as me condoning this icon_rolleyes.gif

    Dancing was good but the costumes highly distraction and a bit disturbing. Not sure why the parents and their dance teacher chose to dress girls like that.

    For starters the dancing is great and kudos to the girls for their performance. That takes a lot of work and dedication.

    However, the outfits are nothing short of a hooker with stripper style. Those kids are just asking to become a victim of some creep who lives in his mom's basement and the parents would be to blame for this.

    I think there is a show called Little Miss Pageant and after I watched that show I was just blown away at how the parents presented their kids. It was ridiculous the amount of pressure those parents put on those kids for there performance and for their outfits and saw nothing wrong with it. I think it is mentally damaging to kids at that age and I would think it damages their self image too.

    I agree with nearly everyone above. Those parents should be examined. If nothing else have we not learned anything from the JonBenet incident?
