11-Year-Old Olivia Lynes’ Adorable Cover of “A Million Dreams” with Helene Fischer

Olivia Lynes delivered an enchanting performance on The Helene Fischer Show, singing the iconic “A Million Dreams” from The Greatest Showman soundtrack. Backed by a live orchestra and performing before a full audience, 11-year-old Olivia shone brightly, handling the stage with a confidence that belied her age.

She opened with a soft, endearing rendition of the first verse and chorus, captivating everyone with her sweet yet powerful voice. When Helene Fischer, renowned for her genre-crossing talent, joined Olivia for the second verse, their harmonies highlighted Olivia’s exceptional vocal abilities. Rather than overshadowing her, Helene’s presence complemented Olivia, enhancing the young singer’s natural star quality.

This wasn’t Helene’s first duet with a young talent; earlier in the same season, she performed a deeply moving duet with Emma Kok, the winner of The Voice Kids (NL). However, her performance with Olivia brought a different charm—innocent and angelic, it even brought Helene to tears as their song concluded.

Olivia, hailing from Bath, made her debut on Britain’s Got Talent the same year. She captivated the judges with “Defying Gravity” from Wicked, earning Amanda Holden’s Golden Buzzer and quickly gaining attention. Her audition alone has garnered 3.4 million YouTube views. Despite some controversy over Amanda Holden’s prior invitation to Olivia, the young singer proved her talent in the semi-finals with a powerful performance of “Into the Unknown” from Frozen 2, securing her place in the final.

In the BGT final, Olivia delivered a stunning performance of “Let It Go,” dressed in icy blue with dancers around her, earning a standing ovation. Although she finished 9th in the 16th season, her journey was far from over.

Olivia’s dreams of becoming a professional singer are well within reach. Sharing the stage with Helene Fischer, who has duetted with stars like Andrea Bocelli, Leona Lewis, Queen & Adam Lambert, and James Blunt, Olivia is quickly establishing herself as a rising star to watch, gaining a new following post-BGT.
