Okay, okay, I’m a loser. I missed the Academy Awards last Monday morning. But I was pretty updated via Twitter and one of the highlights of the night — wait, it’s not a highlight. It’s a major blunder! HAHA! And don’t we just ABSOLUTELY LOVE blunders made on live television?! Watch how John Travolta makes quite the fuck up by calling Frozen’s Idina Menzel by a totally different name. This Vine is from Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet – make sure to click the audio button on the upper left to play the sound!
I know most of my readers are young girls who probably know Idina Menzel as Rachel Berry’s mom on Glee
But she is much more than Rachel Berry’s mom!!! She is the original Elphaba from the musical Wicked. If you are from the Glee generation, the song Defying Gravity is from Wicked FYI! I just recently watched it with my family and I cried talaga! I loved the book by Gregory Maguire and the musical was just absolutely perfect.
Some people say her performance at the Oscars was not her best. Others say she had an asthma attack and that’s why she was rushing through the song. Well, I have yet to catch the replay so I don’t really know but here she is singing live with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. I LOVE IT!!!
John Travolta finally spoke about his flub to CNN and here’s what he’s got to say:
“I’ve been beating myself up all day. Then I thought… What would Idina Menzel say? She’d say, Let it go, let it go! Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!”
