Since we've all had a day to digest John Travolta's tragic pronunciation of Idina Menzel's name, it's time to get back to the reason that the Tony Award-winning actress was performing at the Oscars in the first place: the girl can sing.

Menzel joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on "The Tonight Show" on Monday, where the group performed the Academy Award-winning track (best original song from "Frozen"), "Let It Go," with classroom instruments.


If you missed the Oscars, Travolta introduced Menzel, who performed the song live on Sunday night. He did just fine reading the majority of the teleprompted script, but something about her name was stumble-worthy because he pronounced it like "Adele Dazeem."

Capitalizing on Travolta's epic fail, Slate came up with a name generator to help you figure out your Travoltified name.
