Idina Menzel rocked everybody’s socks off with her performance of “Let It Go” at the Oscars, but last night (March 2) the Frozen star found a new way to perform the Disney hit, complete with kiddie instruments.
Menzel, showing off her triangle-playing skills, turned the song into a little bit of a Sesame Street jam with help from Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon–playing the blocks and doing a little high pitched harmonizing. His house band The Roots lend backup on the toy xylophone and melodica. A special shout out should go to Questlove, who really knows how to play the kazoo.
As Menzel takes a victory lap with the Oscar-winning song, which helped the song’s co-writer Robert Lopez, win an EGOT (Watch Lopez’s adorable rhyming acceptance speech with his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez here), she can only hope people get her name right. On Sunday, John Travolta found a rather interesting way to pronounce her name. She is now Adele Nazeem, at least according to him.
