Idina Menzel, John Travolta Relive 'Adele Dazeem' Name Flub at Oscars

Idina Menzel and John Travolta got to relive the infamous 2014 Academy Awards name flub all over again Sunday at this year's Oscars before the pair announced the winner of Best Original Song, but the on-stage moment wasn't without awkwardness once again.

Last year, Travolta botched Menzel's name before her performance of "Frozen's" "Let It Go," introducing her instead as "Adele Dazeem." He was ridiculed endlessly for the gaffe.

On Sunday, host Neil Patrick Harris poked fun at Travolta and called Menzel out to the stage, where she then asked for her good friend "Glom Gazingo" to join her, The Hollywood Reporter wrote.

"I deserve that," Travolta said. He then got a chance correct last year's flub, saying: "You are my wickedly talented Idina Menzel," while awkwardly holding the actress' chin.



The New York Post dubbed the pairing one of the top 10 craziest, most memorable moments from the 2015 Oscars. 

"A year after welcoming 'Adele Dazeem' to the stage for her performance of 'Let It Go' at least year's Academy Awards, Travolta and Idina Menzel made nice — but perhaps got a bit too close for comfort," the newspaper said of Travolta strange chin-caressing.

The former "Saturday Night Fever" star later acknowledged on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" that "apparently, I played with her chin too much." 

Numerous people on social media noticed the Travolta chin-touching as well.
