John Travolta Butchers Idina Menzel’s Name at Academy Awards [VIDEO]
Who’s Adele Nazeem? Apparently John Travolta thinks it’s Idina Menzel. The actor more than mispronounced Idina’s name just before her live performance of Frozen‘s ‘Let It Go’ on last night’s Academy Awards, he didn’t even come close to getting it right. It seemed like the teleprompter people were punking him.
I’ll admit, I had to practice saying Idina’s name several times before we went on the air with ‘Let It Go’. Was it Scientology speak or something that tripped up John? Whatever the reason, more than Battlefield Earth and his kitchy Christmas album with Olivia Newton-John, Travolta embarrassed himself on a whole other level last night…and on live TV.
