  • Just for the record the English for some reason always get it wrong when it concerns Belgium. He was a Judge on the FLEMISH (i.e. Dutch speaking) “Idool’ for the Flemish TV channel VTM, nothing “Belgian” about it….The French speaking part of Belgium (Wallonia in the south) have a French version of the programme.
