John Travolta has responded to his completely butchering Idina Menzels name when he introduced her performance of “Let It Go” from Frozen at the Oscars on Sunday.

As you’ll recall, Travolta embarrassingly said, “Please welcome the wickedly talented, one and only Adele Dazeem.”

The gaffe has been a punchline for the past two days.

In a statement to Gossip Cop on Tuesday, the actor acknowledged, “I’ve been beating myself up all day,” adding, “Then I thought… What would Idina Menzel say? She’d say, ‘Let it go, let it go,’” referencing her song.

Travolta added, “Idina is incredibly talented, and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!”
