Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Shortly after John Travolta called Idina Menzel by a different name last Sunday, “Adela Dazeem” has started her fame on Twitter and has gathered over 19,400 followers in less than a day.

Travolta was the one who introduced Menzel for her performance of the Oscar-winning song “Let It Go.” The veteran actor’s speech went smoothly, except for the last part when he pronounced the performer’s name, which sounded like “Adela Dazeem.”

Spelling variations of the Tony-award winning singer’s name have mushroomed on the Internet but it was “Adela Nazeem” that gathered over 19,400 twitter followers since the account was created on Sunday.

The 60-actor has not commented on his mistake, and Menzel has also chosen to keep her silence regarding the flub, instead cherishing her Oscar moment saying, “Still pinching myself over my entire #Oscars experience. Dream come true.”

Meanwhile, celebrities and netizens alike have become busy with trying to “Travoltify” their names through Slate’s newest widget that lets one type their names and turn them into something that sounds like name that a squinting John Travolta would pronounce.
