Idina Menzel and John Travolta now 'buddies' after Adele Dazeem name botch

Fans of Idina Menzel and viewers of ABC’s broadcast of the 2014 Oscars will never forget when John Travolta botched the “Let it Go” singer’s name and announced Adele Dazeem to millions. Now, however, all has warmed over for the “Frozen” actress and Travolta, as the two are now “buddies” according to The Hollywood Reporter on Saturday.

Shortly after the 60-year-old “Saturday Night Fever” star twisted Idina Menzel into Adele Dazeem, reporters blamed dyslexia, and social media ran with the fiasco as Twitter handles and name-changing apps popped up throughout the Internet, which prompted John Travolta to issue a statement.

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!

In a tease of its March 29 issue where the 42-year-old Broadway powerhouse appears on the cover, Billboard detailed the apology, which Adele Dazeem received with flowers from John Travolta after the Oscars.

That threw me for a minute, but then I just got back on track and reminded myself of where I was. He (John Travolta) was really gracious and sent this gorgeous email, and we're buddies, and it's all cool. Please. I mean, I've only benefited from it.

On Monday Billboard will print the full Idina Menzel cover story.
