People can't stop talking about John Travolta's flub last night. Which is understandable because...what happened?!

In case you have no idea what we're talking about, the actor took the stage at the 2014 Academy Awards to introduce Idina Menzel who performed her song "Let It Go" from the animated film Frozen.

Everything was going smoothly until it came to actually saying her name. After praising the "wickedly talented" star, Travolta introduced her as, "the one and only Adele Dazeem."  Wait, what?! Who's Adele Dazeem?

Travolta's mistake took the Internet by storm, and although nobody really knows what happened in that moment, we do know that the Pulp Fiction star said Menzel's name perfectly fine during the Oscar run-through.

E! News confirmed that Travolta was present during the Academy Awards rehearsal on Saturday, and a source tells us the celeb had no problem pronouncing Menzel's name.

"He knew how to say her name," the source said. "No one knows what happened. Maybe nerves just got the best of him."

Well, no one can blame him for being a little nervous up there. After all, it's the Oscars!

E! News has reached out to Travolta's camp for comment. Meanwhile, Menzel has not spoken about the blunder since it happened, but that's probably because she's too busy celebrating Frozen's Oscar win for Best Original Song.
