John Travolta Oscars Flub Inspires Hilarious Name Generator!

By: Annie Scaramuzzino

Potentially the most talked-about blunder from this year’s Academy Awards was John Travolta’s extreme mispronunciation of Idina Menzel’s name.

While introducing the Frozen star before her performance of the Oscar-winning song “Let It Go,” Travolta referred to her as “Adele Dazeem,” sparking countless memes and even a Twitter account dedicated to what has now become an alter ego of sorts for the singer.

Menzel has taken the flub and its aftermath with a grain of salt, while Travolta released a statement about his mistake:

“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!’” Travolta said (via USA Today). “Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!”

Meanwhile, Slate.com has had a little extra fun with the situation, creating a name generating widget that gives a person their own “Adele Nazeem” moniker –  you can call me Amelie Suzzivan!
