Scrambled Dregs
January 21, 2017  | By Eric Gould
 
As Idina Menzel premieres this weekend in the Lifetime remake of the 1988 Bette Midler/Barbara Hershey film, Beaches, we're thinking her most remembered moment wasn’t her run as the original Elphaba in Wicked on Broadway. Or, as part of the Glee cast, or even with her voicing of Queen Elsa in Frozen, singing the smash hit “Let it Go.” Rather, it was when John Travolta introduced her at the 2104 Academy Awards, relying on the phonetic spelling of – and completely botching — her introduction to a live TV audience as “Adele Dazeem”. It lived on in this Conan O’Brien bit shorty after when we finally got to meet the real Dazeem… and others. Menzel returned the favor the following year when she introduced Travolta as “Glom Gazingo.” —Eric Gould
