Menzel ‘laughs off Travolta flub’

Idina Menzel reportedly thought John’s name change was hysterical.

The Frozen star, who performed the movie’s hit song Let It Go during Hollywood’s biggest night, was introduced by the tongue-tied actor, who mistakenly called her “Adele Dazeem”.

The mix-up spurred a series of internet memes and made for plenty of material for late-night comedians.

But a source tells E! News Idina thought the mistake was hysterical and has no hard feelings.

“She laughed it off. She thought it was so funny. She was like, 'What are you going to do?'" the insider said.

Idina apparently bumped into John backstage. According to the source, the pair shared a chuckle and moved on.

"The Oscars were a dream come true for Idina. She wasn't going to let anything get in the way of that,” the source explained.

Idina also took to Twitter after her performance. Appearing to reference the hiccup, she wrote: "That was crazy balls. What a night."

Idina had more than a stellar performance to celebrate.

The star’s track also won the Oscar for Best Original Song at Sunday’s ceremony, beating competition from Pharrell’s Happy (Despicable Me 2), Karen’s O’s The Moon Song (Her) and U2’s Ordinary Love (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom).

"Still pinching myself over my entire #Oscars experience. Dream come true,” she later tweeted.
