Adele Dazeem, Er, Idina Menzel Was Totally Thrown Off Her Game After John Travolta Butchered Her Name At The Oscars! Is She Changing Her Tune?!

idina menzel let it go off her game 8 seconds

It was the name flub heard around the world, and even though Idina Menzel has totally let it go, the rest of the world, not so much.

In fact, everyone just really wants to know if the incident threw the Broadway queen off her game!

And it did! How could it not? We'd be shocked if someone got our name wrong after getting it right during rehearsals too!

On the Today show, the Frozen star admitted she heard it all go down, saying:

"I heard it, I did. I don't want to keep saying it because I don't want him to feel worse or anything, because he sent lots of apologies and everything that were really nice.

It threw me for like eight seconds because I had done this whole preparation to make sure I really was in my body and didn't get too nervous, and let Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep sitting there make me so nervous. So I was picturing my son Walker and singing it to him like we do in the bathtub and make sure I breathe — and then [John Travolta] said my name like that and I was like, 'Did that just happen?'"

Uh, yeah! We were all wondering the same thing!

Idina then got her shiz together after getting over the initial shock and did her thing! She said:

"Then the orchestra started and then for eight seconds, I said, 'Get your s–t together! And like, stop worrying about your name and sing this song! The world is going to see this song.' So, it took me about eight seconds to get over myself."

LOLz! What a great internal pep talk!

The world will never EVER forget Adele Dazeem!

    Most people didn't have a clue who she is, this at least got her some recognition. It probably helped her more than anything.

    I second onefinn. Also, not sure why this mishap has been posted on here so many times.. it's a non story. Let it be, Perez.

    she had a lot of recognition waaaayyyy before this incident. but i do understand what onefinn and jesse mean bc she became more identifiable to the general public but dont be fooled bc girlfriend is def not an unknown and has been in the game a while.

    Start acting like a professional. She shouldn't have even admitted she heard the mistake. Have some class and grace lady. This sounds more like the desperate grovels of someone trying to get 15 minutes of fame.

    I'm SICK of the "Adele Dazeem" thing. John Travolta is dyslexic and made a mistake - big woop! Leave it alone already, it's annoying.

    Re: LittleMouse – You're a moron.

    Idina Menzel (/ɪˈdiːnə mɛnˈzɛl/; born Idina Kim Mentzel; May 30, 1971) is an American actress, singer and songwriter. She rose to prominence when she originated the role of Maureen Johnson in the hit Broadway musical Rent, a role which she reprised for the 2005 feature film adaptation of the musical. She received a Tony Award nomination in 1996 for her performance in Rent.

    In 2004, she won the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for originating the role of Elphaba in the blockbuster Broadway musical Wicked. She made her return to Broadway in the 2014 musical If/Then.

    Menzel is also known for her recurring role of Shelby Corcoran on the musical comedy-drama television series Glee, the 2007 Disney movie Enchanted and as the voice of Elsa the Snow Queen in the 2013 Disney animated film Frozen, which is the highest-grossing animated film of all time, in which she sang the Academy Award-winning song "Let It Go". The song peaked at number five on the Billboard 100 chart. Menzel is the only Tony Award-winning actress to ever reach the top 10.

    Re: Suhisfitsudjit – "Let It Go" wasn't her best performance, though. In the movie and during the Oscars. That wasn't John Travolta's fault.

    John Travolta didn't just mispronounce her name, he totally butchered it. I don't know how he got Adele Dazeem out of Idina Menzel even if he is dyslexic.
