Idina Menzel Teases Academy Awards Performance Of FROZEN's 'Let It Go'Broadway superstar and recognizable vocal talent Idina Menzel is set to sing her unprecedentedly big hit single from Disney's super successful animated movie musical FROZEN at this year's Academy Awards and she opens up about the hotly anticipated upcoming performance as part of a new interview.

Reflecting on her initial impressions of the song by fellow Tony Award-winner Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Menzel shares, "I knew it was a great song. I was proud to be part of it and to be given this beautiful moment in the film, but I had no idea... I was just happy to be involved, honestly."

Menzel also comments, "I know how lucky I am to have this. I had it with WICKED and 'Defying Gravity,' and I feel so grateful."

Previewing her Oscars performance itself, Menzel hints, "We have to come up with an arrangement of the song. I'm just working on the song with my teacher, because it's not the kind of song you can wake up and roll out of bed and sing. It's a challenging song and quite acrobatic, so I have to be in my best voice. We'll see!"

Additionally, Menzel adds of the starry assortment of performers set for the show, "I'm just hoping my soundcheck is back to back with Bono's soundcheck, because I've never met him in my life and it's like a dream for me to meet him."
