Fans Not Letting Go Of Travolta Mispronunciation Oscar Moment

Posted: Updated:

It was the moment that left many viewers and fans scratching their heads. John Travolta announced Idina Menzel's highly anticipated Oscar performance with a flub. The 60-year-old actor mispronounced Menzel's name.

Travolta, a musical movie actor himself appearing in films like "Grease" and "Hairspray", introduced Menzel as the "wickedly talented" Adele Dazim.

The moment sparked an outrage and parody in the social media stratosphere. Fans are not letting it go, especially on Twitter.

Someone created the @adeladazeem handle moments after her performance. The account has over 15,000 followers. Tweets include:

"Thank you, Jorn Tromolito" and "OMG I just left the stage, I can't handle it. I got a standing ‘O'!"

One person took it a step further by creating Travoltify name website. Users can put their names on the website and see how a fake John Travolta would flub it.

Menzel was nominated in the Best Song Category for "Let It Go," from the hit animated film "Frozen." The Tony Award winner was also the voice of one of the film's leading characters Princess Elsa.
