It’s tough to let it go when you never had it in the first place. Just ask Ellen DeGeneres and Kristen Wiig, who attempted to belt out the hit song from Disney's “Frozen” on the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Monday despite being clueless about the tune.
The duet came about when both comedians admitted they had been living in a kingdom of isolation concerning the ubiquitous power ballad.
“I’m probably one of the only human beings on this planet that doesn’t know that song," DeGeneres marveled to Wiig.
“I just know that the words 'let it go' are in there,” Wiig said. Then she hedged: “I assume they’re in there.”
DeGeneres suggested the two sing it together, predicting viral infamy.
“We will be the worst of all the videos,” the host vowed.
Even though the duo followed the lyrics on a teleprompter and sang along with Idina Menzel’s original vocal track, they more or less delivered on that promise, flubbing the verses and hilariously butchering the high notes.
