Idina Menzel Hits a Bad Note, But Check Out How She Reacts to the Haters

Posted January 4, 2015 by J Matthew Cobb in News

The Frozen star hits a very bad note, but she bounces back with one heavy tweet aimed at her critics

She is a Tony Award winning singing machine and will go into history as being the voice behind one of animated cinema’s biggest hits (“Let It Go” from Frozen). Maybe you’ve heard of her. Idina Menzel. And maybe you heard her sing her timeless classic on Ryan Seacrest’s version of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on ABC. If you did, you probably heard a very bad note on that climatic ending.

If you missed it the first time, here it goes:

The E-flat fifth she wanted never came out. Now that the world has heard the blunder, the trolls of the underworld — those who lurk on their smartphones using Twitter and Facebook — went into a hyper rage on how terrible Menzel was. Some rushed to nab the talented Broadway star of her already acquired prestige using social media posts like this:


Menzel went online and replied to their silly tantrums using some good ole truth. Not shade, but truth.


No one is perfect. The human voice knows that. It thoroughly understands that the more when the elements of Mother Nature and everything else (i.e., frigid temperatures, live television, pressures) is trying hard to work against you. So what if Menzel had a bad day; she understands what’s most important: Staying in the moment.

And for the haters. You might want to start trying to “let it go.”


















Now if she frequently messes up the song like some other pop star we’ve talked about, I might have to follow up this story with a little truth of my own.
