It’s almost time to see what she can do! Idina Menzel has revealed in a new interview with HuffPost Entertainment, how she’s preparing to sing Frozen’s smash hit “Let It Go” on the Oscars telecast March 2. The Tony winner admits that she’s “working on the song with my teacher, because it's not the kind of song you can wake up and roll out of bed and sing. It's a challenging song and quite acrobatic, so I have to be in my best voice.”
We’re sure that the Broadway.com Audience Choice Award winner will be! Menzel also drew parallels with the Bobby Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez's-penned song’s success and a certain other one of our favorites. Menzel admitted that she knows “how lucky I am to have this. I had it with Wicked and "Defying Gravity.”"
And what of “Let It Go’s” main competition at the Oscars, the U2 song “Ordinary Love” from the movie Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom? Menzel just hopes “my soundcheck is back to back with Bono's soundcheck, because I've never met him in my life and it's like a dream for me to meet him.”
If you can't wait to see Menzel test the limits and break through at the 86th Academy Awards, check out the video of her below belting out the anthem recently in L.A.!
