Megan Hilty Defends Friend Idina Menzel's NYE Performance

Smash actress Megan Hilty is coming to her friend Idina Menzel‘s defense after the actress failed to hit a high note in an otherwise amazing performance of “Let It Go” on New Year’s Eve.

The ladies both starred together in the Broadway musical Wicked together. Megan was the understudy for Glinda until eventually taking over the role and launching her career.

“I’m really disappointed & frankly pissed off at the shitty comments made by people in our industry over Miss Menzels NYE performance,” Megan tweeted. “how she chose to gracefully deal with such unwarranted backlash by people who have considerably less than 75% of her talent or success… the best dancers fall and the best singers crack. At least they’re doing it LIVE.”

Idina Menzel Responds to Critics of Her New Year's Eve Performance

After being criticized over her performance of “Let It Go” during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2015 with Ryan Seacrest, Idina Menzel is speaking out.

“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,” Idina said in the past interview.
