Olivia was guest presenter at the Grand Final Countdown Xanadu National Dance contest held at Chases Disco in Melbourne. The other presenter was Molly Meldrum who was clearly overjoyed at having Olivia there. There's such a lot of kissing and hugging by Molly that it becomes quite embarrassing.

A satellite link was set up with John Travolta, also in Australia to promote his film Urban Cowboy. They were meeting the next day to see the Melbourne sights and to meet Olivia's mom. Olivia talked about meeting Michael Jackson and how nice he was and "very cute". Michael told her that he loved Magic and John Farrar's work.

Olivia mimed Magic and Xanadu in sparkling outfits. We got Xanadu twice as a young girl also tap-danced to it but unfortunately didn't win.
