Idina Menzel is celebrating her alter ego's 10th birthday!

In a lighthearted video posted on TikTok and her Instagram Story on Saturday, Menzel, 52, celebrated the fact that it has been 10 years since John Travolta memorably flubbed her name and called her "Adele Dazeem" while introducing her onstage at the 2014 Oscars.

"Hey, Adele Dazeem, it's Idina Menzel. I just want to say happy birthday," the Rent star said in the video. "I'm sending you so much love and positive energy, I hope you have the best, best day.

The actress then sang "Happy Birthday" to her alter ego before signing off. "Have a great one, lots of love, bye!"

She captioned the video: "'Happy 10th Birthday, Adele Dazeem!"

Menzel, who voices Elsa in the hit Disney franchise Frozen, was at the ceremony to perform "Let It Go" when Travolta, 70, mispronounced her name.

"There will always be a special place in my heart for the movie musical and for the songs that create their most memorable moments," he said in his speech. "Here to perform the Oscar-nominated, gorgeously empowering song 'Let It Go,' from the Oscar-winning animated movie Frozen, please welcome the wickedly talented, one and only, Adele Dazeem."

“The beautiful news, and Idina actually agrees, is that she’s had one of the best years of her life, and her career. And she gives me credit!” he said after telling the story.

Menzel and Travolta presented together at the 2015 Oscars, and she's joked about his embarrassing mistake over the past decade.

In 2022, the Disenchanted star did the "That's Not My Name" challenge on Instagram and TikTok and included a clip of Travolta's Oscars flub along with clips of the various characters she's played. Instead of a name, there were question marks over the video clip.
