Travolta introduced Idina Menzell calling her "wickedly talented." She starred in Wicked on Broadway. But he flubbed her name, calling her Adele Dazeem. The song from Frozen won the Oscar anyway.

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

She starred in "Wicked" on Broadway. But it quickly became clear he'd never heard of her. He introduced her as Adele Dazim. The song Ms. Menzel sang, from "Frozen," won the Oscar, anyway.
