While the 60-year-old star had plenty of kind words to say about "the wickedly talented, one and only Adele Dazeem," he completely botched the Frozen star's name...and the flub didn't go unnoticed.
Not only were the folks on Twitter buzzing over the Grease star's epic snafu, but a few famous faces also took to the social media site to comment on the Oscar hiccup. Here's what the stars are saying (stay away from Google today, Travolta!).
Oh. No. My five year old just looked at me and said "it's IDINA MENZEL." I mean, obviously, John. Good grief.? Busy Philipps (@Busyphilipps25) March 3, 2014

"THANK YOU, JORN TROMOLTO!," the second spoof account wrote while the first posted, "Travolta never bothered me anyway," as the celebs continued to poke fun at Travolta's epic mispronunciation.
I would pay 500 dollars to hear John Travolta pronounce Chiwetel Ejiofor. #Oscars2014? Matt Mira (@MattMira) March 3, 2014
Did John Travolta just have a stroke when trying to say Idina Menzel?!? Fortune Feimster (@fortunefunny) March 3, 2014
What name did John Travolta say?? Harry Shum Jr (@iharryshum) March 3, 2014
The only way #JohnTravolta can save himself is by joining twitter and tweeting "let it go".? Joey McIntyre (@joeymcintyre) March 3, 2014
Luckily, Eric Stonestreet captured the moment in an epic Vine video (in case you want to replay the hilarious scenario).
So congrats on your honor, Adele Dazeem, Idina Menzel, you clearly have a fan in John Travolta.
