After his infamous goof-up on Idina Menzel's name at the Oscars kicked up a storm of mockery, John Travolta has said he was feeling terrible about it and hoped the Frozen star would "Let it go'".

Travolta had mispronounced the singer's name as he introduced her, terming her "the wickedly talented Adele Dazeem" at the 86th Academy awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

The Saturday Night Fever star finally came out in the open to explain how he felt after he made a mess of Menzel's name.

"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! Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!" the Pulp Fiction star said in his official website.

Travolta's botch-up set off a hurricane of criticism throughout internet and late night TV shows while the social media celebrated the launch of the "Travoltify" app for changing the way a name is pronounced.

Idina Menzel seemed unaffected by Travolta's mispronunciation and went on to give a spell-binding performance of the Oscar-winning song 'Let It Go' from Frozen.

The Disney's blockbuster too bagged the best animated feature award at the Oscars.

However, Netflix, as well as some Broadway shows, saw a marketing opportunity and used the goof-up to promote their upcoming shows.

"You know her name! @idinamenzel stars in the new musical If/Then on Broadway starting March 5th," tweeted Broadway show If/Then.

Online video service Netflix used Travolta's blooper of a statement at the Oscars in its Twitter account stating 'Don't miss the wickedly talented Adela Dazeem in RENT, streaming now.
