John Travolta Mispronounced Idina Menzel’s Name During Oscar Introduction

One of the performances we were all looking forward to last night was Idina Menzel singing “Let It Go” from¬†Frozen. Her performance was magnificent, but it was the introduction from John Travolta that had everyone scratching their heads.

It appears as if Travolta had a momentary squint to read the name, but it wasn’t enough to get it right. He introduced Idina Menzel as “Adele Dazim.”

According to the New York Daily News, Twitter exploded after Travolta’s botched pronunciation of Menzel’s name. Twitter parody accounts immediately went up to make light of the memorable moment.

We put Tony to the test to see if he could pronounce some of the more difficult names of actors in Hollywood. Here is the list of names he had to pronouce:

  • Adepero Oduye
  • Saoirse Ronan
  • Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
  • Quvenzhan√© Wallis
  • Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

How you you think he did?
