John Travolta on Idina Menzel Oscars Flub: ‘Let It Go!’
While introducing Idina Menzel’s performance for her nominated song, “Let It Go,” from Disney’s Frozen, the 60-year-old mistakenly pronounced the Tony award winner’s name as “Adele Dazeem.”
“I’ve been beating myself up all day.” John said in a statement to CNN. “Then I thought … what would Idina Menzel say? She’d say, Let it go, let it go! Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!”
John has received much taunting for his mistake, and a name generator was even created that will “Travoltify” one’s name.
