It only took him the guts of two days, but he got there in the end. Speaking of his almighty cock-up introducing "the wickedly talented, one and only" Idina Menzel as Adele Dazeem at The Oscars on Sunday night, he offered the following to US Weekly yesterday:
"I've been beating myself up all day... Then I thought...What would Idina Menzel say? She'd say, 'Let it go, let it go!'" That was him, of course, making reference to Adele's Oscar winning ditty Let It Go (we won't subject you to it, bit early for such enthusiasm) from the film Frozen.
He then added: "Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!"
One of the reasons Travolta maaay have taken to jazzing up already perfectly serviceable name is because he stockpiles his drinking credits for Oscars night...
He told TV Show Entertainment Tonight: "Let me tell you what I do - I don't drink very much, but I wait until Oscar night to have my drinks. So now I'm ready to stay out until five in the morning. We're gonna do [the] Vanity Fair [party], then we're gonna do Madonna's party, and we're gonna have fun tonight. I'm not gonna be happy until we see the sun rise."
At the time, John was also full of enthusiasm for his Grease co-star Olivia Newton-John's (AKA Oliver Warshington) current residency in Las Vegas, but wouldn't let on if he plans to join her on stage at any point.
He said: "How exciting is that? But you know, I need rehearsal for that stuff, you know what I mean? She's like, so used to it, because she sings every night."
In light of recent events, John, rehearse, rehearse, and rehearse the arse out of it. Or, actually, don't... nobody needs to be to subjected to something like this ever again...
