No matter who takes on the challenge of playing the role of Olivia Newton-John, people will definitely have a lot to say about you.

That’s exactly what happened for Delta Goodrem after the premiere of the ONJ TV biopic last night, Olivia: Hopelessly Devoted To You.

Some praised Delta’s performance.


However, others weren’t so quick to praise Delta’s performance of Olivia.

One viewer said there was a bit of a “disconnect” with The Voice judge playing the role of Olivia.

Another called Delta a “distraction to the story”.

It appears for some Delta’s performance in the biopic prompted a campaign for the 33-year-old to perform at Eurovision next year.

Now, we’d love to see that.
