The critiques also quickly gave way to jokes about the cold bothering the singer’s voice (a twist on the “Let It Go” lyric “The cold never bothered me anyway”) and suggestions that Adele Dazeem had taken Menzel’s place (“Adele Dazeem” was how actor John Travolta mistakenly introduced Menzel at the Oscars in 2014).
Of course, there were many fans who also took to Twitter to defend the singer, applauding her otherwise amazing performance. On Thursday night, Menzel herself tweeted about the performance with a quote she’d given in an interview previously:
