Idina Menzel `Let It Go’ Hits The Top 10 on John Travolta's Adele Dazeem Flub; Idina Menzel's ‘Let It Go’ Is the Hottest New Club Anthem
By Staff Writer | March 25, 2014 08:25 AM EDT
Idina Menzel's hit single "Let It Go" from the Disney movie "Frozen" is a hit on the dance floor. The Let It Go remix is shaking things up.
Idina Menzel said "Let It Go" to the John Travolta Adele Dazeem flub on the Oscars. The "Frozen" star has a top 10 hit. Idina Menzel, 42, started out in Broadway almost two decades ago, but is only now getting major recognition because of her work in the Disney film 'Frozen' and its successful song, 'Let It Go.' The Wicked star has no problem with John Travolta. Idina Menzel's newest song "Let It Go" jumped in the charts after the Oscar performance, no mean feat for a Broadway star.

Idina Menzel's "Let It Go" rode on more than John Travolta improvising the "Adele Dazeen" line, but it didn't help. Idina Menzel has happily forgiven John Travolta for
flubbing her name on live TV at the Academy Awards a few weeks ago. Menzel says it's been great for her. Menzel made her Broadway debut in the hit musical 'Rent' in 1996. Menzel says she always wanted to do Broadway, but varied her records between musicals and recording pop music. Menzel's new record "Elsa" is the first album to sell more than a million in 2014. "Let It Go" made Menzel the first Tony-winning actor to have a top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. "Let It Go" won the best song Oscar on March 2.
Menzel said at first that she "was very zen" about the Travolta flub. But Menzel's Oscar-winning "Let It Go" from the Disney movie "Frozen" flew up 17 spots to hit the big number 9 on the Hot 100 as of March 22.
Idina Menzel admitted to Billboard magazine that John Travolta's mangling of her name momentarily "threw me for a minute. But then I just got back on track and reminded myself of where I was. He was really gracious and sent this gorgeous email, and we're buddies and it's all cool."
The flight of Let It Go started with Menzel's performance on the Academy Awards on March 2. The press focused on how Idina Menzel was introduced by John Travolta as Adele Dazeem, but all eyes were on that performance, which was a winner in itself.
Menzel and Travolta were the talk of the Oscars for days after the Oscars, but Menzel says the two are "buddies" now. She recently told the media "He 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."
She still had a wonderful time at the Oscars, and was excited to tweet about the event to her followers.
Menzel won the 2004 Tony Award for best actress in a musical and nominated for featured actress in a musical in 1996, for "Rent."
