Stefani mispronounced the funnyman's name while announcing his show as the Outstanding Variety Series, but Colbert took it all in stride backstage.

"[She's] evidently not a huge fan of the show," Colbert told ET's Nancy O'Dell with a smile. "But I'm a huge fan of hers. I want to get her abs. That's what I aspire to."

Colbert, who is taking over CBS' Late Show from a retiring David Letterman next year, continued to have fun with the mistake, referring to Stefani as Stephanie for the rest of the night.

While Stefani learned a new name on Monday night, we also picked up a few nuggets of knowledge. Here are a few things we learned at the Emmys: Sofia Vergara walked the red carpet without boyfriend Joe Manganiello so as not to take attention away from Modern Family, and the Emmys taking place on a Monday was actually okay for ratings, as the show pulled in 15.6 million viewers.
