"Blijf zoals je bent" ("Stay the way you are") was the Dutch entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1989, performed in Dutch by Justine.

The song is a love ballad, with Justine explaining to her lover how much he means to her. She describes the initial portion of their relationship and then tells him to remain how he is and not to change.

The song was performed fourth on the night, following Ireland's Kiev Connolly & The Missing Passengers with "The Real Me" and preceding Turkey's Pan with "Bana bana". At the close of voting, it had received 45 points, placing 15th in a field of 22.

It was succeeded as Dutch representative at the 1990 Contest by Maywood with "Ik wil alles met je delen".
