"I shouldn't do this! Because I'll just mispronounce shit and f--k it up," Travolta said, before "f--king it up" in another way.
The world was introduced to Adele Dazeem after he butchered Idina Menzel's name at the 2014 Oscars.
The newly bald "Pulp Fiction" star joined Queen Latifah on stage on Monday to hand out one of the night's biggest awards. Poking fun at himself prior to announcing the winner, Travolta looked at Latifah and said, "I shouldn't do this! Because I'll just mispronounce shit and f--k it up. You do it. You do it."
After Latifah announced Taylor's "You Need to Calm Down" had claimed the coveted moonperson, the singer mouthed "what the f--k" to one of her many co-stars as the group flocked to the stage.
The drag star who portrays T-Swift in the visual, Jade Jolie of "Drag Race" Season 5 fame, beat the real Taylor Swift to the stage, prompting Travolta to stare awkwardly, start to hand over the award, realize it wasn't the right person and swap it out for a cringe-worthy side hug.
Rest assured Twitter took full notice.
