Glom Gozingo AKA John Travolta Gets Idina Menzel's Name Right!

Pin It
John Travolta was able to right a wrong - a terrible, terrible wrong - at the 2015 Academy Awards.

At last year's ceremony, the actor butchered the wickedly talented Idina Menzel's name and called her Adele Dazim instead. As many hoped, Idina and John made light of the moment at this year's show.

But not before the night's hilarious host, Neil Patrick Harris, introduced them with this perfect zinger:

He brilliantly said, "Benedict Cumberbatch. It's not only the most awesome name in show business, it's also the sound you get when you ask John Travolta to announce Ben Affleck." YAAAS, NPH!

After Idina appeared on stage, she asked everyone to welcome her "very dear friend Glom Gozingo" to the stage. Snap! That's "John Travolta" in John Travolta speak, if you're following. LOL

"I deserve that," John said before looking longingly into her eyes and correctly pronouncing her name.

"You got it! Yaaay!" a super happy and clappy Idina replied. The audience simply ate it up. Great stuff!
