But thanks to an unforgettable episode of the now-defunct New Zealand’s Got Talent in 2012, we got to see some older talent that proves age should never hold a person back from following their dreams.
Despite being 91, Olivia Turner auditioned for the competition show simply because of her love for music.
“I love to sing and I love to perform,” she said. “It makes life interesting. There’s not much left now, so it’s one thing I can still do.”
And it’s one thing she certainly could do well. The great-grandmother blew the judges away with her performance of “I Could’ve Danced All Night,” a song originally sung by Julie Andrews for the musical My Fair Lady. (Just wait til you hear Turner sing that powerful last note!)
“You engaged with the crowd; you engaged with us. A thousand percent, hugely respectful yes!” judge Jason Kerrison told her.
The other judge, Ali Campbell, said, “I can’t wait to hear you sing another song. It’s a yes from me.”
