Martijn Joop Krabbé (born 26 March 1968) is a Dutch radio and television presenter.[1]


Krabbé started his career in Dutch media as a 19-year-old in the Dutch TV programme "Popformule". Later, he hosted several Dutch television programmes, such as Idols (the Dutch version of American Idol). He also hosted the Dutch version of The X Factor and Dancing on Ice.
