In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, Academy Award-winning husband and wife team Robert Lopez (Avenue Q, Book of Mormon) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez shared their reaction when they heard John Travolota's 'Flub Heard Round the World' at this year's Oscars.
The actor was tasked with introducing the performance of 'Let It Go' from Disney's award-winning animated film, Frozen but unfortunately mangled Tony-winning star Idina Menzel's name into Adele Dazeem.
"My heart just sank," Anderson-Lopez tells the magazine. "I just grabbed [my husband]'s hand."
Adds Robert, "We were sitting next to the president of music at Disney and he just went, 'Oh,' I don't know if you can print an inflection but it was amazing and it just encompassed all the anxiety that we collectively felt at that moment."
Despite the error, Anderson-Lopez had nothing but praise for Menzel's performance. "I thought she exactly encompassed what that song is about in that moment. She decided not to let someone else control her power and she just let it out and sang the s--- out of that song," she says.
The couple admits they have even used the Adele Dazeem Name Generator, which allows the user to see just how their own name would be pronounced by Travolta. "Mine is Kieren Alexernder," says Anderson-Lopez. Adds Lopez: "It told me my last name was Lopeez. Not as exciting."
