Idina Menzel Approves Channing Tatum ‘Frozen’ Cover?

By Shane Jordan s.jordan@classicalite.com on Jan 11, 2016 07:28 PM EST

He may look little like her animated character, Elsa, but Idina Menzel couldn't have loved Channing Tatum's Lip Sync Battle rendition of her Frozen hit, "Let It Go", any more. After the Magic Mike actor appeared in full princess regalia to perform the 2013 hit, the Wicked star let Channing know on Twitter that she was impressed. Word has it that Idina may not be so solid when it comes to own performance in If/Then, now that the show is on tour, however. Menzel recently admitted that she was absolutely exhausted going into the run, but didn't want to leave the production until she had seen things through to the end.

Channing Tatum sure didn't look the part when he stepped onto the Lip Sync Battle stage to perform Idina Menzel's Frozen hit, "Let It Go," but the energy he brought to show was undeniable.

Following the show, the Broadway beauty let Channing know that she thought his version was really something special with a quick shout-out on Twitter (via Entertainment Tonight):

"I got chills! And not because I'm an ice queen.

"You made me proud."

Whether or not Idina is going to be able to make her friends proud for every performance of her current If/Then tour remains to be seen.

During a recent press conference, the 44-year-old single mom admitted outright that she isn't going to be able to bring the same amount of energy to the show as she did when If/Then was on Broadway or in D.C. (via AZ Central):

"I was doing my own world tour all summer, and I was bringing my son with me all over the place, Japan and Korea and the Philippines and all over the States on a tour bus.

"I am, and will admit I am, exhausted, but I felt compelled to see this through and bring it to other places, because I believe in what it's saying, and I believe in new musicals."

What do you think of Channing Tatum's performance of "Let It Go"?

Did Idina Menzel do the right thing in complimenting his Lip Sync rendition?

Or, should Channing focus on shaking his groove thing in Magic Mike sequels and leave performing for kids to the professionals?
