Travolta Oscars gaffe spawns 'Travoltify' naming site

Award-winning actor John Travolta fluffed his lines at the Oscars when he struggled to pronounce the name of singer Idina Menzel as he introduced her performance.

The Grease star apologised to the singer for calling her “Adele Dazeem” and said he regretted the mistake.

Despite the mispronunciation, Menzel seemed unaffected as she performed the Oscar-winning song Let It Go from the Disney hit Frozen.

An estimated 43 million people were watching the Oscars on Sunday night and Travolta has been mocked on social media since the gaffe.

Travolta’s mispronunciation sparked the creation of a Name Generator where you can “Travoltify” your name.
