PHOENIX, Arizona (The Adobo Chronicles) – John Travolta introduced her as Adele Dazeem at last year’s Academy Awards. She is none other than Broadway star Idina Menzel, who sang the Oscar-winning Best Song, ‘Let It Go’ from the Disney animated film ‘Frozen.’

The Tony award winner, 43, was just announced as the singer of the national anthem at this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIX (that’s 49 for the Roman Numeral-challenged).

Despite its confidence in Menzel, the National Football League (NFL) is not taking any chances.   It doesn’t want a repeat of the many instances when celebrity singers messed up with the lyrics of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’

So, the NFL has decided to project the lyrics of the National Anthem on the stadium’s giant screens to make sure Menzel is not only perfect in pitch but also flawless in words.

Plus, the audience and television viewers can sing along. Now, that would be very patriotic!

As for the half-time show performer Katy Perry… well, she will be Katy Perry.

THE REAL ADELE DAZEEM EXPOSED, TURNS OUT TO BE FILIPINA

elsa-frozen-cartoon-mobile-wallpaper-1080x1920-3514-4289924720Hollywood, California – John Travolta didn’t make a goof after all on Oscar night.  Everybody knows by now how Travolta introduced actress/singer Idina Menzel as ‘Adele Dazeem’ when she sang ‘Let It Go,’ the nominated song from the Disney animated film, ‘Frozen.’

It turns out that prior to Oscar night, Travolta was rehearsing his lines for his introduction of Menzel.  Being the professional that he is, Travolta wanted to listen to the nominated song so that he could come up with a better introduction.  So he went on YouTube and typed in ‘Let It Go.’ A video came up of a Filipina housewife singing the song.  Her name was Adele Dazeem.

Travolta was so mesmerized by the song and the Filipina singer that up till Oscar night, the name Adele Dazeem was stuck in his head. In all fairness, Travolta came up with a great introduction, saying “the wickedly talented…”

The Oscar-winning song’s co-composer, Robert Lopez, is Filipino American.

This is the video that Travolta viewed on YouTube.
