There were a lot of names that were tough to pronounce at the Oscars this year, from Chiwetel Ejiofor to Barkhad Abdi. But no one thought "Frozen" star Idina Menzel would be the one to have her name butchered.

When John Travolta took the stage to introduce Menzel for her performance of "Let It Go," which later won the Oscar for Best Song, he completely screwed up her name.

No one had any clue what he said and Twitter's reaction was just as confused with guesses like "Adele Dazeem," a name which now has its own Twitter account (of course). Maybe he was a little too excited about his "Wicked" pun to remember how to say her name correctly.

Here are some of the best tweet reactions to Travolta's mega mess up:

Clarification: Language has been amended to clarify that Menzel had not won the Oscar prior to Travolta's introduction of her.
