john travolta gets it wrong

Talk about awkward!

John Travolta was introducing Idina Menzel at the Oscars when he made a booboo.

The Frozen starlet was getting set to perform the now Oscar-winning song Let It Go, but we hope she wasn't thrown off when he said the wrong name!

Maybe John mispronounced Idina's name on purpose. You know, to make it seem like he's not a big…theater fan!

Don't believe something this oddball could happen at the Oscars among people who recite lines for a living??? Well, ch-ch-check it out (below) to see for yourself!

    That was ridiculous! I was shocked when I heard what he said. There is no excuse for that.
    She deserved so much better!!

    Maybe his hair transplant is too tight and he can't think.

    The wrong name introduction is an inside joke, it was done on purpose people -_-

    Re: KillJoy23
    How is that a joke in any way shape or form? How would you even know? Did they let you in on the joke?

    Re: KillJoy23 – How do you know? Are you one of them? LOL! Or did you somehow hear or read that somewhere? Either way, it's pretty much irrelevant… Even if it was an inside joke, that would be even stupider! I mean, a genuine accident is one thing, it sucks, but it happens. But saying a different name other than the performer's while you're introducing them before their big solo performance at the Academy Awards, (being shown all over the world) just because it's some kind of inside joke between you, that NO ONE else is privy too, and therefore will not take as a joke is UNBELIEVABLY stupid… almost mean… So I HOPE it was an accident, lol.

    I honestly think she was a little shaken by it, either way. Her voice cracked a lot and she had a few flat notes… and she's normally a phenomenal singer (It was great over all, I'm just comparing her to herself haha). It could have been due to nerves, though.

    Joke or mistake: Either way, this was cringe worthy. I had to play it back a few times just to be sure it actually happened hahaha. >:|

    There was NO excuse for what travolta did at all. He gets paid millions and acting is his living! He couldn't remember the two lines they gave him? How pompous was he that he couldn't rehearse? It definitely shook Idina. She's a powerhouse of a performer who was in W I ked and sang live 6 nights a week on Broadway, and this jerk intimidated her. She sounded so weak, and the music overpowered her. It seemed like her nerves got the best of her, but the audience gave her a SO pro a ly because they realized how badly travolta screwed up. Then Ellen corrected it. She probably didn't want to embarrass him, because thy are good friends. Maybe the name he said was the name he uses when he registers in hotels to get those massages from men! He's gay or at mi I um bisexual and like his scientologist buddy tom cruz refuses to come out of the closet.

    or maybe his people are coming for him (you know, da aliens) and other scientologists and that was a coded msg!!!!!……….. oMGGGGGGGGGGG.

    No matter what, it was rude and stupid. How about announcing him as On Whatvollta?

    Travolta is an idiot! He should be so embarrased by mispronouncing Idinas name. Kudos to Idina for keping her composure and performing beautifully. I hope Travolta apologized to her

    Travolta, we all know you are bald, that wig is atrocious and not fooling anybody.

    John Travolta is NOT dyslexic. Google it, there aren't any articles before last night that say he's dyslexic. All the articles that include his name and dyslexia, talk about Tom Cruise being dyslexic, but claiming that Scientology cured it.
