Kristin Chenoweth: 'I Couldn't be Happier' for Idina Menzel Performing at the Oscars

Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth's days in WICKED may be long over, but the pair still have some fitting words of encouragement for each other.

On the Oscars red carpet, Chenoweth caught up with E! host Ryan Seacrest, where he asked how she felt about Menzel performing FROZEN's mega-hit "Let It Go" during tonight's broadcast.

"I couldn't be happier," Chenoweth told Seacrest.

The song struck a chord with movie audiences across the globe when it premiered in 2013, earning it an Oscar nod for Best Original Song. The film is also up for ' Best Animated Feature Film.'

Menzel won a Tony Award for her performance as Elphaba in the original Broadway production of "Wicked." She received a Tony nomination for her Broadway debut in "Rent" and earned a Drama Desk nomination for her performance in Manhattan Theater Club's off-Broadway musical "The Wild Party."

In March, Menzel will star in "If/Then," a new Broadway musical about a woman moving back to New York City for a fresh start. In addition to "Frozen," in which she voices the character of Elsa, Menzel's film roles include "Enchanted," "Ask the Dust" and "Rent."
