John Travolta introduced the performance of "Let It Go" from the Oscar winning animated film "Frozen" at Sunday night's Academy Awards. But somewhere between the teleprompter and Travolta's lips, the song's singer, the well-known Broadway performer Idina Menzel, became "Adele Dazi."

Or something.

"Please welcome the wickedly talented Adele Dazi," is sure what it sounded like he said.

Luckily for Menzel and the song, Travolta's introduction could have no influence on Academy voters, and the song went on to win the Oscar for best song from a motion picture.

Which anyone with a young child knew that it would.
