Why Idina Menzel Flubbed Her NYE Performance of 'Let It Go'


Looks like Idina Menzel may have frozen up during her highly anticipated performance on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve in Times Square Wednesday night.

The Tony award winning singer belted out her hit song "Let It Go" live in front of about one million people in the New York City cold. But she may have missed a key note or two.

"In the light of day, let the storm rage on."

Yeah, ouch. And if you were left cringing after that missed high note, you weren't the only one.

Viewers on Twitter were so distraught by Menzel's performance, some even resorted to using her inadvertent alter ego, Adele Dazeem, to throw some shade at the singer.

Alright guys, let's leave John Travolta's absolute butchering of Menzel's name in the past where it belongs.

But not everyone was as quick to bash Menzel for that sour note. After all, cold temps can affect any singer's voice for the worse.

The founder of vocalcoach.com told AccuWeather last year, "The main problem with colder weather for singers is dryness. Dryness in the vocal track is danger." And that danger can cause the voice to crack.

Many singers, including her majesty Beyonce during her performance on Inauguration Day, have been suspected of lip syncing in cold weather to avoid song slip ups.

Yeah, I don't sing so well in the cold either. Or in the warmth either, come to think of it...

So maybe we shouldn't be so hard on Idina after all and, dare we say it, let it go.
