Olivia Isabella Hannah Hill (born January 16, 1999), better known by her stage name Olivia Rox, is an American singer from Agoura Hills, California, who finished in the Top 10 in Season 15 of American Idol.
The daughter of saxophonist Warren Hill and his wife, singer turned music producer Tamara Van Cleef, Olivia grew up surrounded by music.

At age fourteen, Olivia tried out for Season 8 of America's Got Talent but was eliminated in the Vegas Round. She also has a YouTube channel where she has posted videos of herself singing cover songs as well as original material.
Olivia auditioned in San Francisco with "When I Was Your Man" by Bruno Mars and received a ticket to Hollywood. She advanced passed Hollywood's Lines of Ten, Group Round, and performed "Genie in a Bottle" by Christina Aguilera for her Hollywood Solo round. She then advanced to Showcase week where she performed "Love Somebody" by Maroon 5 and advanced to the Top 24. During the Top 24, she performed "Confident" by Demi Lovato and performed a duet with David Cook singing his original song "Light On". Afterwards, she advanced to the Top 14 where she received a designated spot by the judges in Season 15's Top 10 and didn't have to perform for America's Vote. During the Top 10 she performed "Unconditionally" by Katy Perry but was eliminated in a double elimination with fellow contestant Gianna Isabella finishing in 9th/10th place.
