Olivia Newton-John (born September 26, 1948), is an Australian singer and actress, most famous for her role as Sandy in the movie Grease, who guest starred in the Glee episodes Bad Reputation and Journey as herself. Her personality in the series is very mean, rude and unthoughtful, though it is most likely very different from her real one.
In Bad Reputation, Olivia Newton-John heads to McKinley High after she heard her daughter laughing at a video, which was Sue's rendition of her music video, Physical. Olivia remembers how mediocre her first video was, so she asks Sue to help recreate the video for a new generation and as a way to both redeem themselves.
In Journey, Olivia is a celebrity judge at Regionals alongside Josh Groban, Sue and Rod Remington. One glee club, Aural Intensity, performs her song, Magic and because of that she believes they were the ones who deserved to win. She also berated New Directions because there was no production value to their performance, writing McKinley off as a "poor person school." When Sue tries to explain that not all kids grow up as privileged as she was, she doesn't care and votes New Directions for third place.
