Someone didn't practice their intro before getting on that Oscar stage.

John Travolta (and his interesting hairdo) got up to the microphone to introduce Idina Menzel's performance of "Let It Go" from the animated film Frozen, but when it came time to actually say the star's name, Travolta pronounced something completely different.

The 60-year-old actor seemed to have said something along the lines of "Adele Dazeem," and just went with it instead of trying to correct himself. Well, all right then!

Regardless, Menzel took the stage and continued with the show (because, really, what would she have done? Called Travolta out? That would have been amazing, though).

The brunette songstress belted her famous track in a way that left viewers breathless. And clearly, the academy felt that the song deserved some serious recognition, because "Let It Go" ended up winning the Oscar for Best Original Song.

Yes, John Travolta completely destroyed Menzel's name, but she still walked away a winner, so we guess it's only right that we just let it go.

Get it?!
