Anonymous said: Idina fucked up her performance though.
oh but why would you get me started?
first, let me clearify that even though i don’t think idina fucked up at all, i admit that last night was not her best performance.
but if i know one thing about idina menzel for sure, it’s that despite her talent she is an extremly self consious person and you could literally see how scared she was through the tv.
also let it go was cut really short. idina actually would have had another whole verse to lead up to and get herself prepared for that big note at the end which she had to kinda rush out yesterday and the sound guys or orchestra people rushed the whole song so she also had to sing faster and take less breaths than she normally would have.
she is also in rehearsal for her new musical right now which means she has to rest her incredible voice a lot to not break on stage every night, so she probably couldn’t see her voice teacher as often as she wanted to or couldn’t practise much in general.
she also got her name fucked up right before she went on, which would make me personally extra nervous. and yes john travolta has dyslexia but he had enough time to practise that one name before he went out, hadn’t he?
so - and i mean that in the most respectful way possible - you didn’t get the standing ovations at the oscars last night, did you? if you cannot do it better yourself, and i think idina did extremely well under all those circumstances, please don’t hate or talk bad about her. she probably hates herself enough for all of you right now.
