John Travolta confused a worldwide audience Sunday night when he mispronounced the name of 'Let It Go' singer and Broadway star Idina Menzel on Oscar night. The embarrassing error however, made great fodder for late night TV hosts Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien. Check out the comics' opening monologues below!

"Welcome to the 'Tonight Show!' I'm your host, Jimmy Fallon, or as John Travolta would call me, Jelan Fejallah," Fallon said as he kicked off Monday night's show. "I actually feel bad for our pal John Travolta ... you could tell as he was saying it he was like, 'Oh, no, this is not going to come out right at all. I'm just (going to) say sounds.'"

Over on TBS, O'Brien began his program with a similar quip: "Thank you for tuning in. I'm Conan O'Brien, or, as John Travolta calls me, Kevin Ozeem."

Following the flub Sunday night, Slate created the Adele Dazeem Name Generator. Users can enter his or her name in Slate's widget and, as the website puts it, "Travoltify" it. The resulting name is the way the actor might say it on a live Oscar broadcast. Check it out here!
