This New Year’s Eve turned out to be a rough one for Broadway superstar Idina Menzel, who bravely attempted to belt out the hit song “Let It Go” on a Times Square stage Wednesday as a part of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2015 . Though the NYC temperature definitely nailed the whole Frozen theme of the movie that made the song famous, it unfortunately didn’t do its singer any favors during this particular performance.

Though many of Menzel’s loyal fans were ready to forgive the Frozen star for a stray note or two, others where not quite so kind. In the hours after her performance, the Broadway actress underwent a rush of harsh criticism in the world of social media. Though many of the ruder critics were just kids on Twitter who more than likely couldn’t even read the note Menzel missed off of a piece of sheet music, let alone hit it themselves in a billion years, the singer heard their complaints and released a lovely response on New Year’s Day.

“This is something I said in an interview a few months ago,” the star tweeted. “There are about 3 million notes in a two-and-a-half-hour musical; being a perfectionist, it took me a long time to realize that if I’m hitting 75 percent of them, I’m succeeding. Performing isn’t only about the acrobatics and the high notes. It’s staying in the moment, connecting with the audience in an authentic way, and making yourself real to them through the music. I am more than the notes I hit, and that’s how I try to approach my life. You can’t get it all right all the time, but you can try your best. If you’ve done that, all that’s left is to accept your shortcomings and have the courage to try to overcome them.”

Well said Miss Menzel and rest assured we look forward to the release of Frozen Fever, an upcoming short film starring the Frozen gang. The short is set to play before Disney’s live-action Cinderella movie in March.
